Chiropractic care for kids and young athletes
Like adults, children are prone to typical wear and tear on their bodies.
If your child participates in organized sports, it is likely that they are going through training sessions that are hard on their bodies.
Drills involve repetitive physical tasks that can ultimately affect proper joint motion and flexibility. Having your child assessed for proper joint motion and muscle balance can help reduce the chance of injury, and also improve recovery time after an injury.
The role of chiropractic care for young athletes is to keep their bodies moving and operating at an optimal level. This can also help with stability, balance and coordination as the body is better able to function without having to compensate for restricted joint movement.
Adjustment techniques used for kids often involve the use of a hand-held instrument (Activator ) which offers gentle correction.
