Pediatric Chiropractor Mokena, IL​

As adults it is very easy for us to know if our bodies are not functioning as they should. Maybe we are suffering from poor posture, headaches or chronic pain. However, with kids it is different. Oftentimes they exhibit non-specific problems such as poor sleep, behavioral issues, bed wetting and much more with no apparent cause. There are a number of factors that can result in these issues such as trauma, stress, anxiety and spinal misalignment. Regular visits to a pediatric chiropractor can help diagnose and treat these conditions without having to resort to medications. We all know that kids are always active and discovering new stuff and hence they are more prone to suffer from these conditions. It is easy for them to get spinal misalignment and even the slightest one can result in symptoms.

When Should I Bring My Child To A Pediatric Chiropractor?

Our Health from Within pediatric chiropractors will use an array of therapies to treat what is wrong with your child and one of the most effective methods that our pediatric chiropractors will perform is spinal manipulative therapy. It calls for precise, hands-on adjustments that are done to the vertebrae of the spine. The adjustments focus on the spinal joints with the objective of creating more space for the joint to move around freely. Spinal manipulation therapy is responsible for the cracking sounds that are seen and heard during a visit to the chiropractor’s office. However, there is nothing to be scared about as the audible pop is merely the sound of a joint releasing an air bubble similar to when you crack your knuckles. Our pediatric chiropractors in Orland Park, IL and Mokena, IL will also use other treatment modalities such as soft tissue therapy, massage and at-home exercises to be able to treat the spine or any other section of the musculoskeletal system effectively.

There is no difference when it comes to the science of pediatric chiropractors’ path of treatment compared to adults but the methods used for kids are extremely gentle. The light pressure of a fingertip applied by the pediatric chiropractor in Orland Park, IL and Mokena, IL is often all that is required to correct the spinal misalignments in children. Kids respond much quicker to pediatric chiropractors and the benefits of the treatment can be felt immediately. Whenever the parents of our patients see the dramatic and quick improvement in their child after being treated by our doctors, they feel they have the best pediatric chiropractor possible and that is what we constantly endeavor towards.
