Pediatric Chiropractor

Is Chiropractic care safe for a child?

Denver Pediatric ChiropracticRecent studies have shown that up to 14 percent of chiropractic visits are for pediatric chiropractic patients and that chiropractors are the most common non-medical provider visited by children. According to a survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 2 million children visited a Chiropractor in 2007.

In general, the Chiropractic adjustment is a very safe procedure for children. With millions of children visiting a chiropractor every year, adverse events (the technical term for injury) are very rare. A study published in 2008 in the prestigious medical journal Pediatrics found only two incidents of adverse events related to spinal adjustments in children worldwide over the past 100 years, an enviable safety record.

Chiropractic care provided at our Denver Chiropractor clinic for children is very different than chiropractic care for adults. The adjustments are much softer and gentler because the child‘s joints are looser and easier to move. The procedure is quite comfortable and children often look forward to their chiropractic treatment. In addition, children generally heal much more quickly than adults, so they typically require just a few treatments to restore normal function their nervous systems and related end organs.

What pediatric conditions can a Chiropractor help?

A Chiropractor help children heal and attain true health by releasing joints that aren‘t moving properly or to their fullest capacity. This restores natural nervous system function, correcting symptoms at the root of the problem and optimizing the child‘s overall health and inherent healing abilities.

If your children aren‘t already receiving Chiropractic care, talk to our experienced chiropractor about getting them into the office for an initial consultation visit.
