3 Ways Chiropractic Care Benefits Kids & Teens

teens walkingNon-invasive, drug-free chiropractic care not only yields significant benefits for adults, but also helps kids of all ages in many incredible ways. Just as a proper diet, sufficient sleep, and regular exercise can promote optimal health, chiropractic care is a vital part of the wellness equation. Here are three ways our natural care could help your child or teen:

Boosts the Immune System

There’s research that shows chiropractic adjustments enhance our immune system. That’s because the nervous system controls every system in the body, including the immune system. So when the nervous system is healthy and free of interference, your entire body can be too.

So as the school year starts again and germs will circulate everywhere, one of the best ways to help your child increase their natural defense against sickness is to bring them in periodically for adjustments.

Helps Reduce Sports Injuries

Chiropractic can help reduce both acute and chronic injuries that may occur from playing sports, especially those related to musculoskeletal pain, such as neck or back strain. Regular chiropractic adjustments can also help improve range of motion, balance, coordination and posture.

Addresses Tech Neck & Posture Problems

Chiropractic care plays a crucial role in addressing tech neck and posture problems in kids and teens. With the increasing use of digital devices, young individuals are often prone to developing poor posture habits, leading to discomfort and potential long-term health issues.

Dr. Cutsinger evaluates and treats these conditions, providing personalized treatment plans that focus on realigning the spine, relieving muscle tension, and improving overall posture. Through gentle adjustments, therapeutic exercises, and ergonomic recommendations, we aim to help young patients regain proper alignment, alleviate pain, and enhance their overall well-being. By addressing tech neck and posture problems early on, we can ensure a healthier future for our young generation.

Dr. Cutsinger can also share tips on identifying potential upper cervical problems in your child or teen.

How Are Kids Adjusted?

If your child’s never been adjusted before, rest assured they won’t get “cracked” with a forceful adjustment that you may have seen on YouTube. With smaller patients, Dr. Cutsinger typically uses the Activator adjusting instrument. With this tool, he can adjust the tension, which regulates the power of the pop or the click.

As kids get bigger, we use the Thompson Technique, which is used for cervical, thoracic and drop adjusting. We can regulate the drop pieces regarding the tension. For example, if your child weighs 50 pounds, Dr. Cutsinger will ensure it’s an easy drop.

If your child or teen prefers to be adjusted using a certain technique or has adjusting techniques they don’t like, please let us know. Dr. Cutsinger provides safe and effective adjustments for kids of all ages.
