Pediatric Ailments at Horizon Health Care Group
Our children deserve the best healthcare possible, which involves seeking different treatments for their needs. While traditional medical treatments are the go-to, chiropractic care can offer a non-invasive method of addressing pediatric ailments. Here are some common conditions that pediatric chiropractic care can treat. In the article below, learn more about our Horizon Health Care Group in Sandy Springs, GA, Morrow, GA, Atlanta, GA, and Decatur, GA.
Poor posture creates various issues, such as back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, herniated discs, and other painful conditions. While your child might not feel the effects of crouching forward to stare at a screen or lugging a heavy backpack to school daily, practicing improper posture techniques will become an issue later in life. With chiropractic care, we can help reduce the risk of poor posture early and teach them ways to care for their bodies to ensure optimal future health.
Children are susceptible to skin infections like rashes, hives, warts, acne, birthmarks, and more. Viral, fungal, or bacterial infections and dermatitis can cause them. For example, eczema can flare up and make your child's skin itchy and dry. Meanwhile, diaper rash is caused by fungi or bacteria growing in the moisture in your baby's diaper.
Usually, the body heals itself, but for that to happen, your child needs a strong immune system. When chiropractors correct a misaligned spine, they create stronger immune responses. This response allows children to fight off skin infections faster.
Improving your child's immune system functioning isn't just about treating skin infections. It can be distressing when your child has a sore throat, especially if it's accompanied by other symptoms like cough, fever, cold, or the flu. As well as improving your child's immune system, when we repair alignment, we increase lung function, helping your child heal quicker.
Sleep is crucial for your child's development, but getting them to fall asleep can be challenging. Pediatric chiropractic care helps us identify ways to improve your child's sleep quality, so they have the energy to enjoy their daily activities.
At Horizon Health Care Group, your child's body is growing alarmingly. Clothes that fitted them a year ago are now too small, and their height increases rapidly during those early years. Visiting a pediatric chiropractor ensures your child grows into a healthy adult.
