Chiropractic for Kids

chiropractor sees children for wellness chiropractic care

At Dr. Nicole Shutko Chiropractic Center, we're committed to ensuring that children experience optimal nervous system function. While kids are known for their resilience, that's mainly related to how they feel emotionally, not always how they are doing physically or structurally. Kids often can't articulate their discomfort or pain, and ignoring these symptoms can escalate into bigger health issues. That's where a chiropractor for kids can make a significant difference.

From conception to birth, children's bodies go through an incredible amount of growth and stress. Imagine what it would feel like to be compressed in a fetal position and then experience the stress of childbirth. These events can have a lasting impact on a child's spine, and consequently, their nervous system. Remember, the nervous system governs vital bodily functions like breathing, blinking, heartbeat, immunity, and much more.

Pediatric Chiropractic Houston

Chiropractic care can be invaluable for your child's development. Toddlers face the physical challenges of learning to crawl and walk, often resulting in strains, twists, and falls. As kids grow and start engaging in more activities like playing with friends, pets, and participating in sports, the risk for physical stress and trauma increases. These are critical phases where pediatric chiropractic interventions can be beneficial.

Kids chiropractic care gains even more importance as children mature. Bad posture begins to set in; they take up contact sports, wear heavy backpacks improperly, and face the demands of increasing daily responsibilities. This carries on into their teenage years, when they may join the workforce in roles that demand physical exertion, like factory work or service jobs.

At Dr. Nicole Shutko Chiropractic Center, our mission is to let kids be kids, uninhibited by physical discomfort or pain. We specialize in treating children across all age groups. We understand the parental instinct to shield your children from illness and pain. Allow us to assist you in this endeavor. Our examinations are thorough, designed to identify any issues even if your child can't verbalize them. We also keep parents informed at each stage of treatment.

Infantile Colic

Infantile colic is currently defined as unexplainable and incessant crying in infants aged 0-3 months, often occurring for over three hours a day, three days a week, for at least three weeks. But is that an adequate explanation for worried parents seeking expert advice?

Babies who are in pain often resort to crying as their only form of communication. They may also pull their limbs in or display a change in skin color. Since they can't confirm if a chiropractic adjustment alleviates their discomfort, we rely on their behaviors and reactions post-treatment. It's common for infants to fall asleep shortly after an adjustment, and many parents report improved sleep patterns for their children thereafter.
