Pediatric Chiropractic Care in Sioux City
More and more parents are exploring chiropractic care as a form of health care for their children. You care about what goes into your child's body, and chiropractic care offers many of the benefits of traditional health care, without the medicines and invasive tests that are often a part of the trip to the doctor. At Multicare Health Clinic in Sioux City, our chiropractor is trained in pediatric chiropractic care. Read on to learn more about whether chiropractic care may be a good fit for your family's needs.
Working with a Pediatric Chiropractor
There are many reasons that our families bring their children to see our chiropractor. Many parents bring in their infants for issues with chronic ear infections, nursing, and gas pains. Older children can benefit from chiropractic care whether they've experienced a sports injury or are in need of preventative care to keep their bones and joints safe while living an active lifestyle. Students who carry heavy backpacks to and from school often experience imbalances due to an uneven load on their back, and can benefit from spinal alignment. There are many other reasons that parents bring their children to see our chiropractor as well.
At your child's first appointment, we'll talk with you and your child about what you'd like to gain from chiropractic care. From there, we'll develop a unique treatment plan to meet your child's needs, and we'll adjust the plan based on individual progress.
Is Pediatric Chiropractic Care Safe?
Generally speaking, yes. It's important that you work with a chiropractor who has been trained to work with children. Not all chiropractors understand the unique mechanics and issues of pediatric chiropractic care. When choosing a pediatric chiropractor, make sure to ask about experience working with children. Chiropractic care has a much lower risk than traditional Western medicine treatments. Malpractice insurance rates are based on overall risk, and chiropractors have the lowest medical malpractice rates of all. If you have any questions or concerns about the safety of your child's care, please don't hesitate to speak up.
