Chiropractic Care for Kids

chiropractor sees children for wellness chiropractic care

Have you considered chiropractic care for your kids? At The Good Life Chiropractic we firmly believe in protecting a child’s body by making sure they have the best possible functioning nervous system. It is well known that children bounce back quickly, but many parents don’t understand the long-term effects of misalignments that children develop in their spine. Unfortunately, children do not always verbalize exactly what they feel when they are sore, uncomfortable, or in pain. Just like with adults, if the underlying cause is left alone for too long it can develop into much more serious issues.

Starting from the time a child is conceived, their bodies are growing and being put under stress. While the child is growing, they are usually curled up in a ball and then they are pushed and/or pulled out during birth. I just ask that you take a second and think about how you would feel if today you underwent that kind of experience. All of this stress and trauma affects our spine which can lead to issues with the nervous system. Your child’s nervous system helps to control and regulate everything in their body.


Chiropractic for Kids in Berkeley

Chiropractic care can be helpful for your child's development. After development and birth, the physical stress and trauma continues when children grow into toddlers. They are faced with the developmental challenge of crawling and walking. While children are learning to overcome these challenges, there is a significant amount of straining, twisting, and falling. Especially while growth continues and the child starts to be at the age where they play with pets, friends, family, etc…

As toddlers grow into kids, they often start to develop bad posture, start playing contact sports, wearing heavier backpacks (most likely the wrong way), and deal with the stress of more daily responsibilities. As these kids become teenagers and high school graduates, they often become part of the work force, usually acquiring jobs that require a lot of moving around and physical labor such as servers, factory workers, etc.

At The Good Life Chiropractic, we make a point to make sure that all the falls, stress, trauma, and physical demands that your children endure do not stop them from being kids. We love treating children of all ages. As a parent you want to protect your child from pain and sickness as much as you can. We get that! Let us help you! Chiropractic care is all about protecting your body from harm. Our exams are extensive so even if your child is too young to communicate, or too shy, we will make sure we know exactly what is going on before proceeding with treatment if needed. Not only that, we will make sure you know what is going on every step of the way.


Infantile Colic

Today, infantile colic is described as “unexplainable and uncontrollable crying in babies from 0 to 3 months old, occurring more than 3 hours a day, 3 days a week for 3 weeks or more, generally occurring in the late afternoon or evening”.

When a child is experiencing pain, and cannot tell you, the only outlet they have is to cry. It has also been found that they will pull their arms and legs in and possibly turn bright red if they have pain. Since children cannot tell us if the adjustment got rid of the pain, we rely on their reactions and observations. It is very common to see babies fall asleep within minutes of an adjustment.

Call our office today for a no-obligation consultation and let us help your children on their way to a better life.
