It may be difficult to imagine that a child would need chiropractic care. They rarely complain of chronic pain and their bodies appear to be made of rubber because of how they bounce back from injury. The truth is, children's bodies are under a lot of stress while they are in a state of development, and keeping them healthy requires maintenance.

Children's Chiropractic Services

At Sunrise Chiropractic, our children's chiropractic services provide specialized care tailored to the unique needs of young patients. We utilize gentle and age-appropriate techniques to address various issues commonly seen in children. These may include spinal muscle balance, postural problems, sports injuries, growing pains, and developmental delays. By promoting proper spinal muscle balance and nervous system function, children may experience improved sleep quality, reduced discomfort, enhanced immune function, and better overall development. Additionally, we can offer advice on nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle modifications to support optimal health and wellness in children. With a focus on gentle and holistic approaches, children's chiropractic services aim to provide safe and effective care to support the well-being of young patients. Some things that children's chiropractic care can help with include:

  • Addressing spinal muscle balance
  • Correcting postural problems
  • Managing sports injuries
  • Alleviating growing pains
  • Support of proper development
  • Improved sleep quality
  • Reduced discomfort
  • Enhanced immune function

Do Your Kids Need Chiropractic Care?

Recognizing when your child may benefit from chiropractic care is important. Here are signs to watch for:

  • Frequent headaches or migraines
  • Persistent back or neck pain
  • Poor posture or slouching
  • Uneven shoulder or hip height
  • Difficulty sleeping or frequent waking
  • Complaints of discomfort or stiffness
  • Persistent sports injuries or strains
  • Digestive issues or constipation
  • Behavioral changes or irritability
  • Developmental delays or motor skill issues

If you notice any of these signs, consulting a pediatric chiropractor could help address underlying issues and promote your child's overall well-being.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Children

Sciatica injuries can limit overall mobility and prevent you from enjoying your day-to-day activities. Here are several ways you can prevent future sciatica injuries. 

  • Maintain a healthy weight through a well-balanced diet
  • Engage in regular, low-impact exercises like walking, swimming, and cycling
  • Strengthen core and lower back muscles with targeted exercises, such as Pilates or strength training
  • Practice good posture while sitting and standing to reduce strain on the spine
  • Take regular breaks during prolonged periods of sitting and employ proper lifting techniques
  • Use ergonomic furniture with lumbar support
  • Incorporate flexibility exercises, including stretching and yoga, into your routine

Is Chiropractic Care Safe for Kids?

Chiropractic care for children is generally considered safe when performed by a qualified and experienced practitioner. Pediatric chiropractors undergo specialized training to work with young patients, ensuring that adjustments are gentle and appropriate for their developing bodies. Research suggests that chiropractic treatments for children are well-tolerated and can effectively address various musculoskeletal issues. However, as with any healthcare intervention, parents need to communicate openly with the chiropractor, share any concerns, and ensure that the chosen practitioner has experience working with pediatric patients. When performed by a skilled professional, chiropractic care can provide safe and beneficial support for children's musculoskeletal health.

At Home Exercises to Help Children with Back Pain

Helping children manage back pain at home involves gentle exercises that promote strength, flexibility, and proper posture. Simple yet effective exercises include:

  • Pelvic Tilts: Lie on the back with knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Tighten the abdominal muscles and gently flatten the lower back against the floor, holding for a few seconds before releasing.
  • Cat-Cow Stretch: Start on all fours with a flat back. Arch the back up towards the ceiling like a cat, then lower the belly towards the floor while lifting the head and chest like a cow.
  • Child's Pose: Kneel on the floor, sitting back on the heels and reaching arms forward with palms resting on the floor. Hold this stretch, focusing on relaxing the back and breathing deeply.
  • Bridge Pose: Lie on the back with knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Lift the hips towards the ceiling, engaging the glutes and core muscles, then slowly lower back down.
  • Superman Stretch: Lie on the stomach with arms extended overhead and legs straight. Lift the arms, chest, and legs off the floor, holding for a few seconds before lowering back down.

Dr. Ward is the best Chiropractor I’ve ever used. As a weight lifter I thrash on my body and Dr .Ward is through in his care. I’m not rushed in and out. He doesn’t just use wonky new age tools – he actually is physical and manipulates my body! I love that he doesn’t force me to have a 6

I can’t express enough how wonderful Dr. Ward is. I’ve seen many chiropractors in Twin Falls, and nothing helped me. My back was completely out – I could barely walk.
