Pediatric Chiropractic Care
During a child's development, the body cannot correct a misaligned spine. Instead, muscles and tissues will develop around the misaligned spine, causing major health problems later in life. That is why it is essential to bring your child in for a proper spinal assessment. Our team at Tacoma Chiropractic Center is here to provide your child with quality spinal care. Our treatment can help children suffering from scoliosis, colic, bedwetting, asthma, allergies, ear infections, back pain, and sports injuries. Pediatric chiropractic care can improve sleep, boost the immune system, and improve behavior and the nervous system. We often receive referrals from pediatricians to treat children and infants. Our chiropractors strive to bring the best quality chiropractic service for your child.
Treatment for Pediatric Illness
Our team provides several chiropractic treatments for children suffering from various chronic illnesses and pains. We use chiropractic manual adjustments for aligning the spine to manage pain and increase movement in the body. We use special tables and devices that provide thrusts and adjustments to the spine, neck, arms, and legs. When performing chiropractic adjustments on children, we use gentler techniques to heed the best results.
Our chiropractors will create corrective exercises and stretches designed to treat specific injuries or conditions. These exercises improve coordination, stretch muscles and tendons, improve injuries, and reduce pain. We will also give training on exercises the patient can do at home. We often recommend exercise for sports injuries unique to each child.
Nutritional Counseling and Exercise for Children
Diet and nutrition are an essential part of our pediatric treatment. We will design a special diet with supplements to meet your child's needs. Our doctors will run tests to eliminate foods that cause allergies and design diets with fresh fruits and vegetables, grains, lean meats, fish, poultry, and healthy fats. We cater to diabetics, gluten allergies, and others that require specialized diets. We will recommend supplements that help your child with wellness and healthy development.
