Chiropractic Care and Children

Care from a chiropractor is an effective treatment option that is used to help relieve chronic aches and pains and to restore balance to the body. Chiropractic care is often associated as a treatment for back pain in adults; however, children can also benefit from chiropractic care.  Pediatric chiropractor care, which includes manipulations as well as massage, physical therapy, and homeopathic medicine, is concerned with the restoration and preservation of the health of children. Here is some brief information about how chiropractic care for children in Tucson is an excellent resource for the treatment of a wide range of childhood illness.

Chiropractic Care and Children

Safe, Holistic Care for Children

As a parent, you only want the best care for your children, so it’s only natural that you would want alternative treatments that are geared toward treating children as a whole. Traditional medicine is often only concerned with treating the symptoms, without addressing the root cause of the symptoms. Pediatric chiropractic care offers a holistic approach to treatments that are designed to treat the entire person; body, spirit, and mind. A chiropractic family practice provides a holistic approach to treatment that is extremely beneficial for children of all ages.

Children and Spinal Nerve Stress

Although spinal stress may be thought of as something only an adult may experience, children, even as young as infancy, may have spinal nerve stress (subluxations). Subluxations aren’t always painful; however, they may pose a serious threat to the child’s development. Subluxations in infants and children may occur if your baby was in a compromised position in the womb or if they experienced a traumatic birth. One of the most common conditions that are attributed to subluxations in children is blocked atlantal nerve syndrome, which may be a primary cause for chronic tonsillitis, upper respiratory infections, and ear infections. Children may also experience stress on their body through normal childhood activities, such as learning to walk or riding a bike. Without chiropractic care for children, these subluxations can have a significant effect on their nerve functions and the development of their nervous system.

With regular pediatric chiropractor care, children may have a lower risk for common childhood diseases, such as fevers, infections, and colds. Chiropractic care for children has been shown to significantly improve asthma symptoms and immune symptoms. A chiropractic family practice is beneficial for the overall health and wellbeing for children of all ages.

    Dr. Cross is by far the best Chiropractor I have ever been to. I am 55 and have been getting chiropractic care since my early 20s for my neck and upper back. I recently discovered I have an atlas subluxation and was so happy to discover Dr. Cross. In fact he is the only Doctor in Tucson using this technique. An upper cervical Chiropractor is called an Orthogonist. He is also a holistic Chiropractor treating all areas of the body including health and wellness. So don't to Doctor Cross

    Dr. Cross is a superb doctor. Believe it, or not, he has helped me with every health issue, including doing research and reporting things my other doctors didn't know. Dr. Cross advises on permanent fixes, such as exercises to strengthen weak muscles, health programs, vitamins, supplements, and things I should read and research on my own to expand my health knowledge. Keep up the great work, Dr. Cross.

    Dr. Cross is very knowledgeable, has an engaging personality, and empathy towards the patient.
