Children and adolescents make up a considerable portion of the people who seek chiropractic treatment, as they can unfortunately also suffer from conditions such as cerebral palsy, neck pain, headaches, joint pain, as well as various injuries. According to the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, over 17% of chiropractic patients are under the age of 18.
Luckily, there are numerous chiropractic techniques which can help alleviate the discomfort and pain, each suitable for the specific condition the patient is experiencing. Sometimes, a combination of chiropractic approaches is necessary in order to obtain the most satisfying and quickest results, which a professional chiropractor will know how to apply. These are only some of the wide range of pediatric conditions which can be successfully treated or at least substantially alleviated by a skillful chiropractor:
- subluxations in the spine
- immune system dysfunctions
- digestive problems
- sleep disturbances
