When you think about chiropractic care, you may conjure up images of young adults receiving injury treatment or seniors enjoying natural relief from chronic joint problems. But children can benefit at least as much as adults from gentle chiropractic adjustments that promote straight posture, proper musculoskeletal balance and optimal nerve function. Your Topeka family chiropractor here at Bolz Chiropractic will be more than happy to provide those all-important spinal screenings and adjustments as needed to help your kids grow, develop and thrive.
For many of us, the need for chiropractic adjustment actually begins at birth. That's because the passage through the birth canal can easily push vertebral joints and other musculoskeletal components out of their proper alignment, leaving a newborn with potential impediments to normal growth and development. Fortunately, our chiropractic team has the training and experience to provide immediate care. Topeka chiropractor Dr. Anna Bolz uses her specialized training from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association to make tiny, gentle adjustments that make a big difference in those critical early days.
As babies explore their world and develop such as skills as walking and running, they inevitably experience their share of spills and tumbles. These little moments can have a cumulative effect on the spinal alignment over time. Pediatric chiropractic checkups can catch these small deviations from the norm, enabling us to make adjustments that keep your child's body balanced. Optimal spinal alignment also keeps the nervous system functioning well, allowing the body to communicate with its many systems as it should. This makes pediatric chiropractic care a useful aid in the treatment of such common childhood complaints as:
As your kids enter their school years, they are sure to encounter a variety of new experiences -- including some that do the musculoskeletal system no favors. Simply wearing an overloaded backpack to and from school every day can eventually result in alignment problems, muscle pain and neurological symptoms. Your kids' Topeka chiropractor can monitor their spinal alignment carefully, provide back-to-school and sports wellness exams and advise them on healthy practices for loading and carrying their backpacks. If your children need care for an acute musculoskeletal injury, your Topeka family chiropractor can administer gentle chiropractic adjustments and other safe, natural treatments.
Another problem that can appear during the school years is an abnormal spinal curvature called scoliosis. Regular spinal screenings allow us to detect scoliosis in its early stages and make the proper recommendations for monitoring and treating the condition.
