Pediatric Care

Pediatric Chiropractic Care with our Chesapeake Chiropractor

Although many people associate chiropractic care as treatment primarily for adults, there are a wide range of benefits for children as well.  The good news is that chiropractic care falls into the category of natural and alternative treatments that many parents want for their children. Here are just a few of the benefits your children can have when they visit our Chesapeake, VA chiropractor for pediatric chiropractic treatment.

Relief of Poor Posture

Whether your child plays sports, is continually bending over electronic devices or carries a backpack that weighs more than they do, it can wreak havoc on their spine. The spine is loaded with hundreds of nerves, which can be easily damaged from excessive weight, sports injuries, and continuous bending. When there is an injury to a child’s back and/or neck, it may result in lifelong problems, so the sooner it is corrected, the better. Chiropractic treatments that include massage therapy, exercise, and spinal alignment can help to strengthen your child’s spine as well as the muscle and tissue surrounding the spine.

Reduces Bedwetting

Children and pre-teens who struggle with bedwetting is more common than many people realize. One of the most common causes of bedwetting in children and pre-teens is due to involuntary muscle reactions. Breathing naturally slows down while sleeping, which causes the muscles and spinal reflex to become relaxed. As the bladder muscles relax, fluid in the bladder is released, resulting in bedwetting. Chiropractic spinal manipulation will manipulate your child’s spine into the appropriate position, which ultimately helps to strengthen their muscles and reduce excess pressure on the spine-alleviating nerve malfunctions and bedwetting.

Asthma Relief

Asthma is a lung condition caused by constricted and inflamed airways; unfortunately, asthma is a common problem among children. Symptoms of asthma generally include difficulty breathing, tightness in the chest, deep coughing and wheezing sounds. When the symptoms of asthma are left untreated, it will result in a significant decline in lung function and may lead to life-threatening situations. Medication that is used to open the airways is typically the primary form of treatment. Studies have shown that there is a link between an interference with the nervous system and the spine which may induce the symptoms of asthma. The good news is chiropractor care often includes spinal alignment, which can correct the misalignment that is having a negative effect on the lungs-ultimately, resulting in the alleviation of asthma symptoms.

  • ""I first came to Atlantic Chiropractic 5 years ago with a pinched nerve in my neck. I was in so much pain, I could not even move my head. Dr. Eric diagnosed the problem almost immediately and confirmed it with the EMG. He set up a treatment plan and told me I probably would not feel significant relief for a good two weeks. I appreciated his thoroughness, expertise, and honesty. As it turned out, I was actually pain free in one week! I always refer my friends to Dr. Eric/Atlantic Chiropractic and Rehabilitation for the most trusted effective chiropractic care.""
