Chiropractic Care For Kids

If your child has endured a sports injury, has been involved in an accident, or needs specialized Chiropractic Care for Kids, Planet Chiropractic can help your child get the care they need!

Kid’s Chiropractor - Specialized Chiropractic Care for Your Child

At Planet Chiropractic, we understand the unique differences between chiropractic care for kids and adult chiropractic care. We realize that while the basic premise for structural adjustments on younger and older people are similar, there are still some major differences. Whether a patient is 80 years old or 8 months old, proper spinal care and adjustments are very important. But when it comes to our kids, their growing, active, and constantly changing bodies can have very specific chiropractic care needs. We are proud that Planet Chiropractic’s founder, Dr. Awais Butt, is a widely respected expert in chiropractic care for kids. Dr. Awais also serves as President of the Georgia Pediatric Association for Chiropractors. So when your child needs chiropractic care, they will be in very good hands with Planet Chiropractic.

Planet Chiropractic Explains Your Child’s Response to Professional Chiropractic Care

Both the short-term and long-term benefits of getting chiropractic care for kids have been proven over and over again, at both the scholarly and practical levels. In general, children respond quicker and much more profoundly to chiropractic care than adults. They haven’t pushed their bodies through years of abuse and accompanying wear and tear like most adult patients. Parents need to be aware of certain indicators to watch for when considering whether or not to sign up for chiropractic care for kids. There are several things that parents should watch for in their kids, including excessive postural changes, babies only wanting to breastfeed from one side, kids struggling with being off-balance, or kids starting to run with a hitch or catch in their stride. Planet Chiropractic understands that children's spines are more mobile, and their structure is more fluid than those of adults. As a result, kids usually require only a few spinal adjustments to restore a more normal structural balance. The actual number of adjustments, however, may vary depending on the length of time that the condition has been present, and the severity of the situation.

How Does Planet Chiropractic Evaluate the Spinal Structure of a Child for Proper Chiropractic Care?

When evaluating the structural integrity of kids, our Chiropractor pays close attention to patterns of movement and restriction. We watch how they typically interact with others. We then place them in different positions to see if they consistently hold their heads awkwardly. We will also gauge to see if they are restricted in their ranges of motion. This same restriction in range of motion or structural tilt can happen with babies. If there is a structural problem, babies will consistently demonstrate similar patterns of overcompensation. When it comes to the actual adjustment procedures of your child, the process is extremely gentle and very precise. The amount of pressure our Kids’ Chiropractor uses when making an adjustment is no stronger than the amount you would use to test the ripeness of a fruit or vegetable in the grocery store. Whether with older kids, toddlers, or babies, you can rest assured our specialists will take utmost care.

Is Chiropractic Treatment Really Appropriate for Children? What Are the Risk and Benefits?

Not only is chiropractic care for kids appropriate, quite often it is highly necessary for giving kids the best chance for the most correct total body functionality possible. Correcting a dysfunction early in the life of a child can set your child on a pathway towards optimum recovery and even enhanced functionality. Yes, children can greatly benefit from chiropractic care. Children are physically active and constantly experience differing trips and knocks from daily life, as well as from participating in sports. Injuries can cause symptoms including back and neck pain, stiffness, soreness, or long-term discomfort. Planet Chiropractic always adapts the level of pressure and care to the threshold of each individual patient. We give highly skilled and gentle treatment options that are perfectly and immediately tailored to produce optimum results. You simply won’t find better and more attentive chiropractic car for kids than at Planet Chiropractic.

Planet Chiropractor Knows the Toll that Children Can Take on Mom’s Body - We Care for Moms Too!

Planet Chiropractic knows what kind of toll that pregnancy can have on a mother’s body. That’s why we offer specialized care for pregnant mothers, as well as mothers who have recently given birth. We find that the benefits of pre-natal chiropractic care are often passed on to the baby after birth. We also understand that childbirth puts a great deal of physical stress on the baby, as well as the mother. In fact, this is where a lot of the structural problems begin for some children—during childbirth. Most of the mothers who go through our pre-natal plan will have their babies adjusted within a few days after birth, to set their precious one on a great path towards excellent spinal health and more efficient, uninhibited, central nervous system. Planet Chiropractic cares for your whole family!
