Do Kids Need a Chiropractor?
Children's Chiropractic Services
Stress and trauma to the body and spine usually begin with the birthing process. Infants' muscles can easily become over tight causing restrictions in the spine from the intense pressure involved in both natural and cesarean births. Unfortunately, other than crying, they have no way of communicating their pain and its source to us. Throughout infancy they may sleep in awkward positions, and occasionally take a tumble, as they grow into toddlers who twist and fall while learning to crawl and walk, all of these developmental steps can cause them to have discomfort that can be resolved with chiropractic care. Luckily, they are very resilient and can take a lot of impact, but if not treated it is common for these injuries to develop into patterns of movement that will restrict joint motion over time.
As kids, they may start to develop bad posture. Sitting in front of a computer or TV can have serious repercussions on the spine. They also start playing contact sports, wearing heavy backpacks (most likely the wrong way), and even sitting at desks, which can all cause issues. As teenagers, they begin to deal with the stress of more daily responsibilities, like becoming part of the workforce, increased homework loads, stress of personal relationships, and performing physical labor. Similar to adults, all of these responsibilities can lead to muscle tightness, joint pain or stiffness, and a decrease in their abilities to handle all that life is putting on their shoulders. Incorporating chiropractic care into their lives early can help them recognize the difference in how their body feels so that they can better advocate for themselves and their overall health.
Tyrel is an amazing Chiropractor who takes the time needed to care for his patients. He goes above and beyond to ensure they receive the care they need. I highly recommend visiting him.
Great chiropractor!! If you need to see someone go to see Sunrise Chiropractor, gentle and patient, listens to your needs! Excellent patient care!!
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
Tyrel has helped me on several occasions and always does a great job. Friendly and professional.
Dr. Ward is very professional and does an excellent job. He was able to diagnose a problem of mine that several other chiropractors had missed over the years that was life changing for me. Would highly recommend!
My son has been seeing him for years due to sports related issues. He’s very knowledgeable and kind! Highly recommend for teen athletes!
Dr. Ward is the best out there in my opinion. He’s been working on my back for a few years now.
I brought my two month old in and Tyrel was gentle and kind and made sure to explain everything he was doing. I so appreciate him!
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. The first day I went in, I could barely get to the front door. After leaving I was able to walk again. After a couple weeks of weekly appointments, my
Dr. Ward is an excellent chiropractor! I’ve been treated by him many times. I highly recommend him to everyone!
10/10 highly recommend!
Dr. Ward is the best! He helps my wife and I so much. Used to get migraines all the time till Dr. Ward worked his magic.
Dr. Ward was able to see me quickly after I reached out (same day!) for lots of pain in my shoulder/neck area. He did not rush through the appointment. He listened to me and was very careful/gentle making sure I was comfortable through the entire process. I really appreciated that he explained what he was doing and clearly helped me
Dr. Ward treats my husband and I who seem to always be a bit out of shape. He’s awesome! He takes his time to figure out what’s wrong and the best way to fix it. He adjusted both my kids when they were babies and were gassy & colicky… we say he has magic hands. You won’t regret going to
Dr. Ward has his own office now! He has always done a fantastic job working on me and is always great with scheduling on the short notice.
I have been treated by Dr. Ward in the past. He is such an awesome Chiro and helped my headaches and neck pain! Wish I was closer to get more adjustments from him!
Dr. Ward is great to work with. He’s treated me on a few occasions, but 2 of my athletic teenagers much more. We all love the way we feel the days following our adjustments. I appreciate his hard work to keep them out on the field.
Great chiropractor! Highly recommend.
