Is pediatric chiropractic care right for my child?

Nearly every child and teen can benefit from chiropractic care at Active Chiropractic. To determine which treatment best suits them, a specialist reviews your child’s lifestyle, medical history, and symptoms. They evaluate vital signs, complete a physical exam, and might order blood tests, MRIs, X-rays, or other imaging tests. 

The Active Chiropractic team tailors a pediatric chiropractic plan that offers your child less pain, better spinal alignment, and improved overall body functioning.

What happens during pediatric chiropractic care?

During pediatric chiropractic care sessions at Active Chiropractic, your child rests comfortably on a padded massage table. 

While they relax, their specialist gently manipulates their spine and surrounding soft tissues. They focus on correcting spinal misalignment and reducing tight and tense tissues. Each treatment could last 20-30 minutes, and, in some cases, up to an hour.  

How often should my child see a pediatric chiropractor?

After your child’s treatment session, they should feel relaxed with less tension and pain. Have them drink plenty of water after undergoing therapeutic massage. 

Their provider may recommend chiropractic adjustments or therapeutic massage several times a week, once weekly, or less often based on your child’s condition and needs.
