One question that we hear quite often is in regards to children. Patients that come in and see how beneficial chiropractic care is to them often want to bring their kids in so that they can feel better as well. However, they are often uncertain whether or not the children are too young. This is an understandable question, as the anatomy of a child is quite different to that of an adult. This becomes more true the younger the child is. If you are thinking about bringing your child into DiBella Chiropractic, then here are a couple of things that you should know.
First of all, we love kids. We know that there is no age limit for pain and that even those who are too young to complete full sentences are at complete risk of pain. There is no such thing as being “too young” for certain disorders such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, and others. There is also nothing that says that children are at less risk of getting hurt and needing medical attention than adults. We know just how much those ideas can harm young ones and do what we can to combat this belief. You often hear of children who have disorders and are left untreated because certain people do not believe that they are actually in pain. We want to make sure that no child we come into contact with is left without treatment simply because of their age and so we will work on just about anyone.
While there are a couple of limitations on who we work on, very few if any of these have to do with age. We will always help every patient to the full extent of our abilities and if you want your child to experience the wonderful benefits that chiropractic care has to offer, then we are more than happy to help. Even if your child does not have any complaints about pain, we will provide a spinal adjustment which may actually help with development, as it keeps all of the bones in their proper places. Next time you come into DiBella Chiropractic, let us know that you want your kid to have an adjustment as well and see how much better they feel after it!
