Pediatric Chiropractic Care

Pediatric chiropractic care is a gentle, natural and conservative treatment approach that addresses a wide variety of youth health concerns. By locating and correcting spinal subluxations, pediatric chiropractic treatments work to enhance development while addressing the stress that is placed on the developing child and baby to ensure proper spinal health and neurological function.

Because a child’s spine forms the foundation of his or her body, it is critical that the spine remains in good health for proper development to occur. At Revolution Chiropractic in Miami, Queensland, Dr. Mark Illguth’s goal is to help your child experience optimal development and functioning through the application of gentle chiropractic adjustments.

What Can You Expect from Pediatric Chiropractic Care?

Overall development and functioning depend heavily on a healthy nervous system. Because your child is in a constant state of growth and development for nearly two decades, improving and maintaining the health of the nervous system is critical.

Pediatric chiropractic addresses the health of the spine through non-invasive, gentle adjustments that gradually bring the spine into proper alignment. At Revolution Chiropractic, our pediatric chiropractors have undergone years of specialized training to perform the techniques we use in our office. There is no need to worry, your child won’t feel discomfort — our techniques are extremely gentle and highly refined, and we modify each treatment based on your child’s weight, size, and specific condition. To check a baby’s spine it requires no more pressure than when you gently feel a ripe peach. The analysis, precision, and care taken is similar to a world-class violin player playing every note perfectly.

Health Benefits of Pediatric Chiropractic Care

Children are constantly growing, learning and exploring, and as a result, their bodies undergo significant physical impact each and every day. Pediatric chiropractic care helps your child’s health thrive by improving the structural integrity of the spine.

Because the nerves that stem from the spinal column control every system in the body, when these nerves become compromised by spinal misalignment, health issues can develop. When the spine is in good health, however, it allows every organ and system in your child’s body to function as intended. Your child can benefit from pediatric chiropractic care in the following ways:

Improved Physical Performance
Learning to walk, falling down, running, jumping, riding a bike, playing sports and any other physical activity carries an inherent risk of injury. And even if your child never suffers an activity-related injury, physical activity places substantial stress on the body. When your child is highly active, his or her neuromusculoskeletal system absorbs the brunt of that activity, which can result in spinal misalignment, muscle tension, and nagging aches and pains.

When spinal vertebrae become misaligned, they affect the nerves that stem from the spinal column, which limits their ability to send appropriate signals throughout the body. With regular, gentle adjustments, we restore proper alignment, alleviate nerve pressure and allow your child’s body to perform as intended.

Healthy Immune System Function
Your child’s immune system is constantly developing, and it depends on proper nerve function to develop and perform correctly. When spinal subluxations are present, they impede normal nerve signaling, which can decrease the functioning and development of the immune system and various other systems throughout the body. Routine, gentle adjustments bring the spine back into proper alignment, which allows your child’s immune system to develop and function optimally.

Healthy Development
Did you know a healthy spine plays an integral role in the development of your child’s entire body? Because the bony structure of the spine houses the spinal cord — from which the nerves that feed the entire body originate — a properly aligned spine is critical for optimal development.

By aligning your child’s spine, we allow for increased nerve signaling and feedback to travel to the brain. This improvement fosters a high-functioning internal ecosystem that positively impacts physical and neurological development.

  • Sleeping difficulties and bedwetting
  • Headaches
  • Earaches and ear infections
  • Sports injuries and athletic performance

  • Digestive issues

Frequently Asked Questions

In a word, absolutely! Because the health of the spine is the foundation of your child’s overall health, pediatric chiropractic care provides a safe, gentle and conservative treatment option for children of all ages.

As your child grows, a healthy spine and nervous system are essential to his or her development and overall well-being. Regular chiropractic treatments help your child thrive by addressing and correcting the underlying sources of many common youth health issues. Sleeping positions, laptops, iPhones, school bags, repetitive sports, poor posture, just to name a few, all cause stress on the spine and can lead to long term dysfunction.

Your child is in a constant state of development for the first several years of life, and the nervous system controls all developmental processes that occur within his or her body. Because the nerves that control the entire body stem from the spine, even the slightest spinal subluxation can result in health issues.

Subluxations in children can occur as a result of the birthing process, developmental stress, play activities, sports and injuries. If not corrected, these misalignments stress your child’s nervous system and may contribute to suboptimal development and functioning.
