Many parents are surprised to learn that children can benefit from chiropractic care. We regularly see children, from infancy through adolescence, for such common conditions as colic, ear infections and “growing pains.” Older children may suffer minor injuries from sports or other activities, that if left untreated can develop into more serious problems as they grow. While commonly passed off as “just a phase they’re going through,” any ache or pain in your child is a sign that something isn’t right.
Dr. Wells recommends that you bring your child in for regular check-ups. She also does scoliosis screenings for older children, especially if there is a family history of scoliosis.
Chiropractic adjustments are gentle and safer than giving your child an over-the-counter pain reliever. Dr. Wells knows how to make your child’s adjustment comfortable and fun for everyone involved.
