Patients are often surprised when they see kids being treated in our office. We usually hear some version of “what can a 10 year old have done to need to see you?”
What’s funny about this is that these are the same people who have been dealing with pain for years. Once they start feeling better they say something to the effect of, “I wish I had known about this sooner!”
Children today have issues that simply didn’t exist 20 years ago. By the time some kids hit middle school they are playing sports and training 20 hours a week or more . In high school they may be training 30+ hours a week putting massive wear and tear on their body.
Other kids are “Gamers” and they spend hours every day in front of a screen which could lead to extremely tight muscles, a lack of core muscle strength and horrible posture.
Kids also spend 7-8 hours a day at school sitting in the most uncomfortable chairs ever made. Let’s be honest, when we were kids we didn’t have good posture sitting there and our kids don’t either.
All of this lead to our children needing chiropractic care. At our office every child receives an in depth evaluation and is given a treatment plan tailored to their individual needs. Each child not only get adjusted but they also receive the stretching and strengthening exercises that their developing bodies need.
Don’t let your child grow up with these issues. Let us help them while they are still young and developing.
