An increase in chronic childhood disease is part of the reason parents today seek 

alternative Health Care for kids.  Chiropractic Care is an effective and affordable 

program that addresses children's health conditions associated with the nervous and 

musculoskeletal systems. Gentle, noninvasive and drug free, Chiropractic adjustments 

treat, resolve and prevent a wide range of health problems. Recent research by the 

International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) found spinal manipulative 

therapy safe and successful in treating children of all ages.

Acute conditions may result from birth trauma, sports mishaps and accidental injury. 

Chiropractic care benefits children by correcting the spinal alignment to improve their 

overall health. When vertebral joints are misaligned during birth or from a blow or 

fall, muscle tissue and nerves may also be affected. Spinal adjustment frees joints, 

restores motion and relieves nerve pressure, which may be the cause of additional 

ailments. Parents report successful treatment of children's health issues such as acute 

earache, upper respiratory infection, muscle pain, neck pain and accident 

trauma. Spinal manipulation for children as young as newborn babies is an 

alternative treatment for the discomfort of colic, infantile reflux, and other digestive 

disorders as well.  Some of the most trauma that your body goes through is the birth 

process, with the forces placed on an infant’s spine with little to no defense against 

those stressors.  An acute trauma, left untreated, can develop into a chronic or more 

Chronic Conditions

Although scientific evidence in these areas is still inconclusive, the growing number 

of those seeking children's health care from chiropractors (up 8.5% since 1991, 

according to the American Chiropractic Association) is a positive endorsement of its 

benefits. Chiropractic America reports that natural, drug-free chiropractic care is 

sometimes more effective than traditional medical approaches for chronic earache, 

scoliosis and neck pain. Headaches and sleep disorders of nonspecific causes 

respond well to spinal adjustments, which affect and repair interrupted neural 

pathways. Asthmas and Allergy symptoms and patterns of attention-deficit 

hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may also be treatable with chiropractic.

Success in these areas has implications for Chiropractic care’s preventive capacity. 

Periodic ongoing adjustments at a young age may help stave off the above ailments 

before they begin. Proper spinal alignment now may delay or prevent degenerative 

bone or joint disease, such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. In addition to 

maintaining children's health, regular visits to the chiropractor also instill the value of 

proactive health care in kids. They'll be more likely to monitor and manage their 

health as they grow up and less likely to be afraid or in denial of any health problems. 

Encouraging good lifelong health habits is one of chiropractic's best benefits for kids.
