Ever since Choice Chiropractic & Wellness Center first opened in 2004, we’ve seen countless kids and teenagers come in for a variety of ailments. Luckily, chiropractic care is exactly what some kids need in order to help treat these problems. Below are 5 conditions we have treated in kids and young adults.
According to the CDC, 1 in 11 children and 1 in 12 adults have asthma. But the even more frightening statistic is that 1 in 5 children with asthma went to the emergency room for asthma-related care. On top of the immediate health risks asthma can cause, it is also very disruptive, especially for young people trying to do well in school. Asthma-related symptoms constantly cause kids to miss school and skip out on sports. Luckily there is an alternative to potentially damaging drug treatments. We’ve had remarkable success treating patients with asthma and chiropractic care is still the safest and one of the most effective treatments available.
We get plenty of young people coming in with various digestive issues. While most healthcare practitioners are quick to give your kid prescription drugs to treat the symptoms, we use a specialized natural approach to deal with the cause, which in some cases can be solved by aligning your body to heal properly.
If you or your kid suffers from painful migraines and/or chronic headaches, you’re definitely not alone. We get patients coming in all the time suffering from painful headaches. The good news is the type of chiropractic care we specialize in is extremely effective in treating these conditions. See some of our patient success stories who suffered from migraines and chronic headaches.
Scoliosis tends to develop gradually, and in most cases it isn’t diagnosed until a child is between 10 and 14 years old. Spinal checkups are essential in all children and if detected early, most cases of scoliosis don’t require a long-term treatment plan. Most kids can usually resume an active lifestyle after treatment has begun.
Not only is Boulder one of the nation’s best sports towns in the country for adults, it has a vast array of sports for kids and young adults as well. While we like to advocate a healthy and active lifestyle, we tend to get patients who have been injured one way or another. Skiing, snowboarding, hiking, mountain biking, playing team sports and sometimes even general horseplay can land you a visit to the doctor’s office. The difference between our care and conventional care is we treat the problems at the source. We don’t like to give kids drugs in order to mask the pain while your body heals, we like to tackle the source by aiding your body’s natural healing process through gentle chiropractic adjustments and care.
While these are some common ailments, they are by no means all of the symptoms we’ve seen and treated in young people. Of course we cannot guarantee that all cases with the above symptoms will benefit from chiropractic care but it is worth looking into to as a conservative treatment option before seeking other more aggressive and intrusive treatments.
