Growing pains can be incredibly uncomfortable in children and adolescents. Aching in the legs in particular can even make it difficult for children to sleep. Moreover, as children develop interests in things like sports and other active pastimes, and do so more regularly, they can experience typical aches and pains in the muscles just like anyone else. Their age doesn’t make a difference.
You might find that adding chiropractic care into your child’s health and wellness routine can help to ease some of the pain they experience from living an active lifestyle. Ultimately, the chiropractic techniques used on younger people are not generally as intense as the ones used on adults. Therefore, you can safely consider having your child’s back gently adjusted by one of the trained and qualified chiropractors for kids at the SnapCrack walk-in chiropractor in Miami Beach.
Typically, when we treat adults, we offer some of the more common chiropractic adjustment techniques. Our three most popular techniques are The Crack, The Drop, and The Click. Each of these highly recommended chiropractic techniques offers an effective alignment that can go a long way to relieving pain in the back. Moreover, since other areas of the body can experience pain as a result of a misaligned spine, you can experience pain relief in areas other than your back through our alignment techniques.
The Click is a method that involves a moderate level of thrust that cracks the back. The sound heard in this process is the sound of nitrogen and other gases being released from the spine as a result of the forces used by your chiropractor. While this is a highly effective alignment method, younger children might be more comfortable with one of our gentler alignment methods.
The Drop is another method that we commonly use in order to properly align the spine. It is similar to The Crack in that your chiropractor will apply force to the spine; however, that force is milder in nature. This method also makes use of a drop table to help achieve the alignment you need.
Lastly, The Click is our gentlest method of spinal alignment. This is where your chiropractor gently clicks the bones of the spine back into alignment using a handheld device and a mild amount of force. Children who have never had chiropractic treatment before might be more comfortable with this very gentle yet highly effective alignment to help their nervous system.
Our expert chiropractors for kids will be able to help determine which is the suitable type of treatment based on their personal medical information.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Many people choose to incorporate chiropractic care into their regular wellness routine. This is because keeping the spine in proper alignment as well as taking advantage of other chiropractic techniques that aid in improving mobility can keep you feeling your best. This is particularly true for those who lead a more active lifestyle and are thus more prone to aches and pains.
Because children grow at such a rapid rate and are also at risk of developing aches and pains through an active lifestyle, it is worth considering bringing your child in for regular chiropractic care as well. By helping to maintain the proper alignment in the spine, your child can enjoy a loose, more comfortable back as well.
Chiropractic care isn’t just about relieving back pain and aches. It can also help in relieving migraines, aid in digestion, and promote better sleeping habits. It can even help with stress. As most people don’t expect children to experience stress at such a young age, knowing how to help them can be tricky, but we can provide the solution you need. With our chiropractic care, we can relieve any stress your child has.
