Young and growing bodies need chiropractic care just as much as anyone. In some ways, children benefit from chiropractic care more than adults do. After all, an adult's bones have more or less reached their permanent size and shape. A family chiropractor like Dr. Lacie Guy of Valdosta Chiropractic and Rehab offers a wide variety of helpful services and professional chiropractic care to help children grow up strong and healthy. Pediatric chiropractic adjustments are always gentle and involve the children in the process as much as possible, as their assistance is necessary for a proper adjustment. This is especially true with infants, who are treated under special protocols and with extremely well-considered techniques that are meant to keep them safe and comfortable at all times.
The First Job is Analysis
Children are in a state of constant change. This means that the first job of any pediatric chiropractor will be to thoroughly understand the young person they are working with to determine the types of adjustments that will be most beneficial. Entirely different techniques will be necessary when dealing with an infant or with an adolescent. The picture is further complicated by the particular health, posture, and fitness level of the child in question. Accurate chiropractic evaluation is the first and most important job of a pediatric chiropractor.
Chiropractic Care for Infants
The process of being born places significant pressure on a newborn’s body. This can cause spinal misalignments which left unaddressed can lead to long-term pain and immobility. Restoring the natural alignment of your child’s spine can alleviate conditions including colic and ear infections. Serious issues such as infantile torticollis can also be addressed through chiropractic intervention. Infants are among the most sensitive and delicate patients seen in our practice. Dr. Lacie Guy and the rest of our staff prioritize your infant’s health and comfort above all else.
Chiropractic Care for Growing Children
As a child grows to adulthood, regular adjustments will be extremely helpful. Parents who address their children's chiropractic needs will not need to worry about conditions such as asthma or gastrointestinal discomfort. Our chiropractor will assess your child’s musculoskeletal system to determine the root cause of his or her pain and immobility before creating a chiropractic care plan to address it.
