Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

Chiropractic for Kids

chiropractic care for kids

Have you considered chiropractic for your kids in Tuscaloosa? At Agee Chiropractic & Wellness Center we firmly believe in protecting a child’s body by making sure they have the best possible functioning nervous system. It is well known that children bounce back quickly, but that is related to how they feel; physically and structurally that is not always the case. Unfortunately, children do not always verbalize exactly what they feel when they are sore, uncomfortable, or in pain, but just like with adults, if the underlying cause is left alone for too long it will grow into a bigger problem.

Starting from the time a child is conceived, their bodies are growing and being put under stress. While the child is growing, they are usually curled up in a ball and then they are pushed and/or pulled during birth. I just ask that you just take a second and think about how you would feel if today you underwent that kind of experience. All of this stress and trauma affects our spine which can lead to issues with the nervous system. This is a problem because the nervous system is what controls everything our body does such as blinking, breathing, heartbeat, the ability to fight illness, walk, talk, think, speak, etc.

Pediatric Chiropractic Tuscaloosa

Chiropractic care can be helpful for you child's development. After development and birth, the physical stress and trauma continues when children grow into toddlers. They are faced with the developmental challenge of crawling and walking. While children are learning to overcome these challenges, there is a significant about of straining, twisting, and falling. While growth continues and the child starts to be at the age where they play with pets, friends, family, etc. they can again endure more physical stress and trauma. Generally children in the preschool-middle school age play hard and try to play without limits.

As toddlers grow into kids, they often start to develop bad posture, start playing contact sports, wearing heavier backpacks (most likely the wrong way), and deal with the stress of more daily responsibilities. As these kids start to become teenagers and high school graduates, they often become part of the work force. Usually, they are jobs that require a lot of moving around and physical labor such as servers, factory workers, etc.

At Agee Chiropractic & Wellness Center, we make a point to make sure that all the falls, stress, trauma, and physical demands that your children endure do not stop them from being kids. We love treating children of all ages. As a parent you want to protect your child from pain and sickness as much as you can. We get that! Let us help you! Chiropractic care is all about protecting your body from harm. Our exams are extensive so even if your child is too young to communicate, or too shy, we will make sure we know exactly what is going on before proceeding with treatment. Not only that, we will make sure you know what is going on every step of the way.


Infantile Colic

Today, infantile colic is described as “inexpiable and uncontrollable crying in babies from 0 to 3 months old, occurring more than 3 hours a day, 3 days a week for 3 weeks or more, generally occurring in the late afternoon or evening”. Now, as a parent, is that an acceptable answer from a doctor that is supposed to be an expert on babies?

When a child is experiencing pain and cannot tell you, the other outlet they have is to cry. It is also been found that they will pull their arms and legs in as well as turn bright red if they have pain. Since children cannot tell us if the adjustment got rid of the pain, we rely on their reactions and observations. It is very common to see babies fall asleep within minutes after an adjustment. It is also common for parents to report them sleeping more that night than they have before.

Call our Tuscaloosa chiropractic team today for a no-obligation consultation and get your child on their way to a better life.
