Why Pediatric Chiropractic Care is Important for Your Child 

Unlike what many say about chiropractic care, it is not only for adults. Infants and children can also experience the benefits of seeing a chiropractor regularly. At Family Chiropractic in Union, MO, Dr. Bolzenius is our chiropractor who specializes in pediatric chiropractic care and knows how important it is for children to have chiropractic in their lives. From promoting better health to improving their behavior, chiropractic care can help. Here is everything you need to know about this type of chiropractic care.


Why Is Pediatric Chiropractic Care So Important?

A child’s body is not yet developed like an adult's body, so they can get  easily hurt, experience physical and emotional stress, and encounter subluxations more often. All of these problems can affect their growth and development and leave them prone to many health conditions, like headaches, earaches, and asthma, among other issues. This is no way for a child to live. Chiropractic needs to be introduced in your child’s life to address these issues. By seeing a chiropractor regularly, your child can overcome numerous physical and emotional health complications.

What Your Child Can Experience

Dr. Bolzenius deeply cares about the health and well-being of children, so she works with parents to create a plan to help their children have happy and healthy lives. The three main areas of health that children can experience are:

  • Better Immune System Function: Children’s immune systems are still immature, meaning that they can be at risk of getting various types of infections or illnesses. As we all know, suffering from an infection or illness can lower one’s quality of life. With chiropractic, however, we can help your child’s body function better so that his or her immune system can fight such illnesses and infections, improving his or her life quality.
  • Improved Sleep: Falling and staying asleep is difficult for children who are continuously dealing with tension, dysfunction, or any type of discomfort. To help improve their sleep, our chiropractor finds the cause of their sleep disturbances and use several safe techniques.
  • Better Behavior: Not getting enough sleep or dealing with stress all the time can damper one’s mood and attitude. We can use a few methods to help your child conquer these issues, which, in turn, improve their behavior.
