Starting from the time a child is conceived, their bodies are growing and being put under stress. While the child is growing, they are usually curled up in a ball, and then they are pushed and/or pulled during birth. I just ask that you just take a second and think about how you would feel if today you underwent that kind of experience. All of this stress and trauma affects our spine which can lead to issues with the nervous system. This is a problem because the nervous system is what controls everything our body does such as blinking, breathing, heartbeat, the ability to fight illness, walk, talk, think, speak, etc.

Chiropractic care can be helpful for your child's development. After development and birth, the physical stress and trauma continue when children grow into toddlers. They are faced with the developmental challenge of crawling and walking. While children are learning to overcome these challenges, there is a significant about of straining, twisting, and falling. While growth continues and the child starts to be at the age where they play with pets, friends, family, etc. they can again endure more physical stress and trauma. Generally, children in the preschool-middle school age play hard and try to play without limits.

As toddlers grow into kids, they often start to develop bad posture, start playing contact sports, wear heavier backpacks (most likely the wrong way), and deal with the stress of more daily responsibilities. As these kids start to become teenagers and high school graduates, they often become part of the workforce. Usually, they are jobs that require a lot of moving around and physical labor such as servers, factory workers, etc.

At Texas Functional Health Centers, we make a point to make sure that all the falls, stress, trauma, and physical demands that your children endure do not stop them from being kids. We love treating children of all ages. As a parent, you want to protect your child from pain and sickness as much as you can. We get that! Let us help you!

Pediatric Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is pediatric chiropractic care?

Pediatric chiropractic care refers to chiropractic treatments for children and teens. Chiropractic care is a health profession that focuses on therapies that support the body’s natural healing process. Treatment typically involves adjustments of the spine and joints to improve alignment.

Misalignments of the spine and joints affect your body’s function, often disrupting nerve signals to and from the brain. These misalignments may cause a wide range of health issues, from back pain to headaches to fatigue.

Children often complain of health issues that may not have an identifiable cause or improve with over-the-counter (OTC) medication. If your child is struggling with a health issue that isn’t responding to traditional care, they might benefit from pediatric chiropractic care at Texas Functional Health Centers.

What does pediatric chiropractic care help?

Pediatric chiropractic care benefits many common health issues that affect children and teens. The team at Texas Functional Health Centers:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Shoulder and knee pain
  • Back and neck pain
  • Earaches
  • Digestive disorders

Pediatric chiropractic care may also benefit sleep and behavior.

What happens during pediatric chiropractic care?

Before making any treatment recommendations, the team at Texas Functional Health Centers conducts an in-depth evaluation. They want to fully understand your child’s symptoms so they can find and treat the source of their health condition.

The team asks detailed questions about your child’s health history, sleep schedule, eating and exercise habits, and behaviors at home and school. They perform a physical exam, paying close attention to the alignment of your child’s spine and joints.

Once they identify the source of your child’s symptoms, they create a treatment plan that might include chiropractic adjustments, at-home exercise and stretching programs, and advanced nutrition therapy.

The team schedules regular visits for your child so they can perform adjustments to improve spine and joint alignment. They also spend time talking to you, helping you create lifestyle changes that benefit you, your child, and your family.
