Pediatric Chiropractic Care
Pediatric Chiropractic Care addresses the health needs and biomechanics of infants and youth.
Empower Health’s Dr. Longo, DC, earned his Chiropractic Pediatric Certificate from Logan University and is an expert in advising parents on a variety of developmental topics and assisting children through normal growth transitions as well as specific musculoskeletal disorders. The adjustments given to children are not the same as the adjustments you would see being given to an adult. Pediatric techniques vary greatly and at a much lesser intensity.
Children are typically born with what are considered subluxations of the spine. The birth process is physically hard on a newborn and depending on medical issues such as breech birth, c-section birth, suction or forcep use, the already hard process can be made worse. Pediatric Chiropractic Care can be started with children as young as an hour old through adulthood.
Newborns may struggle with post-birth musculoskeletal issues and latching-on challenges; young children often require care for posture, spine development and appropriate muscle strength; and youth can suffer pain from falls, repetitive use or sport injuries. Chiropractic care also plays an important role in the care of children with special needs.
Pediatric chiropractic adjustments treat the imbalances of the body and remove interferences which often lead to conditions such as:
- ADD and ADHD
- Developmental Delays (crawling, walking, talking, etc)
- Digestive Issues
- Ear Infections
- Headaches and Migraines
- Latching Issues
