Many people don’t know this, but chiropractic care exists and is beneficial. At Hawk Ridge Family Chiropractic in Lake St. Louis, Missouri, we have the expertise to perform chiropractic treatments for children safely and effectively. There are many values to these treatments for children of all ages, and even pregnant women.
We can help your child deal with immune system problems, sports injuries, and mild infections, among others. Not all chiropractors are qualified to perform pediatric care. At Hawk Ridge Family Chiropractic, however, our team is well-equipped to take care of all members of the family, including adults and children.
At Hawk Ridge Family Chiropractic, we have several methods of taking care of your children’s health. The first is massage therapy, which can help reduce anxiety. This is useful for anxious children or those going through a stressful period in their lives.
We also perform therapeutic stretches and spinal manipulations. The stretches strengthen the muscles and keep them coordinated. These effects decrease the likelihood of your child injuring himself or herself when they’re physically active. Spinal manipulations help the body perform better overall by keeping everything aligned properly.
Nutrition counseling is something we can do too. Whether your child is over or underweight, we can set a nutrition plan that’ll help them achieve a healthy BMI (body mass index). Our services are more than just manipulations.
Our manipulations and expertise are useful for several conditions. Through our manipulations, for example, we can help ear drainage, which leads to a lower risk of ear infections. If your child has an infection like the cold or flu, we can help strengthen their immune system through spinal manipulation.
Sports injuries are things we encounter all the time. Most of them are mild and can be treated with some stretches and exercises. Our goal isn’t just to treat the child’s existing injury but also help them avoid more injuries in the future. We’re interested in prevention as much as we are in treatment.
