How Children can Benefit from Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic Care and Childhood
Dr. Michael Pettet, and the staff at Back & Neck Care Chiropractic & Sports Massage in Vancouver, WA work together to help children stay healthy and recover faster from accidents and injuries. Our comprehensive approach to health and wellness includes a variety of modalities including nutritional guidance, sports massage and spinal adjustments.
Proper nutrition fuels growing bodies and enables a healthy immune system. Correcting nutritional imbalances with supplements, when necessary, helps children resist minor illnesses like colds and ear infections. Consuming a wide variety of foods provides the necessary energy for normal growth and development. Incorporating daily exercise strengthens muscles and improves mobility, flexibility and athletic performance.
Nutrition plays a vital role in maintaining spine health and keeping the spinal column healthy allows young bodies to use their dietary intake more efficiently. We work with parents to develop a wellness plan designed to give our children the resources they need to thrive and experience the world around them.
Chiropractor Services and Sports Massage Benefits for Children
When injuries happen, perhaps during a workout or an athletic competition, correcting spinal misalignment allows the body to recover faster, with less pain. Our chiropractors may recommend sports massage for children who experience an injury.
Sports massage techniques target specific injury sites, relieving muscle tension and enabling improved circulation. Patients often notice a reduction in pain immediately after the first treatment, without strong prescription drugs that have negative side effects. Massage therapy improves mobility, flexibility and range of motion. The goal is to help the body recover faster, with less pain and inflammation.
Our doctors and professional therapists at Back & Neck Care Chiropractic & Sports Massage in Vancouver, WA are committed to helping keep children healthy and enabling them to recover from injuries with less pain and disruption to daily life. A healthy spine supports every body system. If the spine is misaligned no part of the body can function properly. We offer preventative services and a variety of non-invasive treatments for post-injury recovery. Call 360-253-6674 to schedule an appointment today.
