Benefits of Pediatric Chiropractic Care for Infants and Children

Did you know we offer pediatric chiropractic care in Fairfax at Ward Chiropractic? Dr. Ward is experienced in treating children from birth and up for general spinal alignment or specific conditions your child may suffer from.

As a parent of two younger children, Dr. Ward knows how important caring for your child’s spinal health is. His pediatric chiropractic knowledge results in part from continuing education from the Motion Palpation Institute (MPI).

Children’s spines can be subject to problems before or after birth, and some conditions don’t present symptoms until later in your child’s development. At Ward Chiropractic, our pediatric chiropractic adjustments can help support your child’s spinal health!

Why Would Infants and Children Need Chiropractic Adjustments?

As your infant’s spine and its supporting muscles continue to develop after birth, your baby could be subject to misalignment due to an accident or another problem. Children can also experience issues with their joints or back pain.

Joint issues or back pain are not common conditions in children, so if you suspect an issue, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We can help you discover what the problem is and recommend a drug-free, non-invasive solution through chiropractic treatment.

Conditions We Can Help Treat in Children

We conduct an exam of your child’s spine at our office in Fairfax. Our pediatric evaluations are gentle, comfortable, and may or may not require advanced imaging techniques depending on your child’s case.

To ensure proper development of the spine in infants, or to assist with misalignment issues in children, we can help treat spine or joint problems as the result of the following events or conditions:

  • Spinal misalignment due to a complicated delivery
  • Torticollis, in which contracted neck muscles cause an uncomfortable head tilt in infants
  • Accidents such as car wrecks or sports injuries
  • Frequent incorrect posture
  • Asymmetrical activities, such as sleeping or nursing on the same side
  • Conditions such as scoliosis

Dr. Ward conducts simple, non-invasive, gentle maneuvers to help restore movement and alleviate discomfort in children.
