Chiropractic for Kids

“Discovering the power of chiropractic was a gift. Sharing the power of chiropractic is a blessing.”

Chiropractic care is not just for adults. Young children can also benefit from a trip to the chiropractor’s office.
Many parents might not know the importance of taking their child to a chiropractor. From improved behavior to better sleep, it can help your child is a myriad of ways.
A child’s body undergoes a lot of trauma. They’re starting to learn how to move about in the world. Children are constantly in a state of play and discovery.
Children experience not only physical but emotional stress early on in their lives.

Chiropractic care works well for children because their bodies are still growing. The alignment of the spine is very important for proper development. Chiropractors can alleviate tense muscles that lead to a misaligned spine or subluxation.
This condition leads to other health conditions and physical issues. These include ear infections, headaches, asthma, and much more.

Improved Sleep

Since chiropractic care works to release stress in the body, it can improve sleep. Certain tensions can cause sleeping troubles such as insomnia.
Sleep is an essential part of a child’s life. It doesn’t just help them function during the day. It’s important for their development and emotional wellbeing.

Immune System Support

Chiropractic care has many benefits for a child’s immune system.
It can help a child who’s suffering from a cold or infection. This support can also improve their immunity functions.
Going to a chiropractor can improve a child’s digestive system and target related issues. Adjustments end stomach problems such as constipation or reflux.

Better Behavior

Less stress leads to better behavior.
Chiropractic care helps children improve their mood and attitude by releasing tension. Improved sleep will also lessen stress for your child and help them function during the day.

Nervous System Support

The benefits of child chiropractic adjustments extend into the nervous system. Chiropractors make sure the spine is growing in the correct way. This prevents and treats certain nervous system issues like ear infections.
This care can also treat asthma, allergies, and other respiratory issues. It does this by targeting misaligned nerves that affect a child’s respiratory system.

Brain Development

Chiropractic care can have a great effect on your child’s neural brain development. It does this by releasing pressure on bones and joints, as well as the spine.
Increased brain development promotes better concentration. It can improve focus and reduce hyperactivity. This includes targeting conditions such as ADHD.

Wood Chiropractic is the place to go for all your chiropractic needs! Staff is extremely friendly and welcoming and Dr. Wood does an amazing job! Highly recommend to anybody in need of chiropractic service! I was in a car accident and Dr. Wood was patient and immediately after my first visit I felt a little bit of relief. And as time went he gave us exercises to do at home and recommendations and helped me in this healing process after my accident!

This is the first time for me seeing a chiropractor and the experience has been wonderful. With this being my first pregnancy also and lower back pain I knew I had to do something. I recommend Dr.Wood! He has helped me so much already. Knew exactly the spot and what was wrong without being able to take X-rays. Definitely recommended !

It takes regular maintenance to keep me going on many levels, and Chris is an invaluable piece in the medical/body care that does so very much for me. Everyone in the office is professional, friendly, and caring. I really wholeheartedly recommend Wood Chiropractic!
