Top Myths About Chiropractic Care for Kids

woman sitting with babyHave you ever heard that chiropractic care for children is unsafe? Or maybe that it’s painful? At Greensboro Chiropractic, we’re here to squash some of those “well known” rumors and help you understand how much of a game-changer focused, gentle care can be for kids.

Let’s get started!

Myth 1: Chiropractic care is uncomfortable for children. This couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, chiropractic is gentle and effective. The same amount of pressure you’d use to check the firmness of a tomato is applied to young children during an adjustment-most of the time, it’s so gentle that they don’t even know they’re getting a treatment.

Myth 2: Chiropractic is useless for kids because they don’t have the same pains as adults. Think about all of the injuries your child sustains-whether it’s a tumble while learning to walk or a sports injury in older children. The fact is, children do injure themselves quite often, and instead of letting the injury fester and cause problems elsewhere in the body, chiropractic can help fix the problem before it becomes bigger.

Myth 3: Chiropractic for children is “too new”. Actually, the father of chiropractic, Dr. Palmer, noted the benefits of chiropractic care for kids early on. More so, Dr. Larry Webster, who founded the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, started the first chiropractic center for kids over 30 years ago.

Myth 4: Chiropractic can only help with back pain. Just like adults, children can experience other pleasant ‘symptoms’ of their adjustments far beyond improvement of pain. Some parents of children under our care have noted things like improved sleep, less bedwetting, improved allergies, reduced ear infections and beyond.
