As proud community sponsors of AKASPORTS, we understand the need for quality physical therapy and chiropractic care for children. Often, when we think of these health services, we don’t think that children need them, as they often recover from an injury more quickly than their parents would. However, children benefit from chiropractic care as much as their parents do. Join Blaine Health and Wellness to learn more about why it’s important for your child to see a chiropractor.

Pediatric Chiropractic

Surprisingly, spinal health experts have recognized that children can experience spinal health issues as soon as they are born. The process of being birthed places undue strain on a child’s spine. These issues can be compounded by the regular activities of childhood like bicycle crashes, uncomfortable school desks, minor falls and even learning to walk. Children grow very rapidly, and if these injuries are left untreated, they can result in long-term health problems later in life. This can result in impaired nervous system functions, which can keep children from living their best and healthiest lives.

For many parents, they bring their child to a chiropractor when their child complains of back-related aches and pains. These are obvious symptoms, with obvious effects. However, regular visits to your Blaine Health and Wellness chiropractor can have a positive impact on less obvious childhood health issues.

The nervous system controls and orchestrates all of the body’s functions, including the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, and immune systems. Poor spinal health can have an impact on a child’s bodily functions. Because the spine is the major conductor of information from the brain to the rest of the body, ensuring good spinal health has shown to have a positive effect on children suffering from colic, ear infections, asthma, allergies, and even bed wetting.

Blaine Health and Wellness

Our team of chiropractic specialists is well trained in pediatric chiropractic care. Children’s skeletal systems are still developing, meaning that their joints are still very elastic. This allows our chiropractors to make very minor, but very impactful, adjustments using very light pressure on their joints and spine.

You can keep your kids healthy and happy by taking them for regular visits to the chiropractor, and by signing them up for the AKASPORTS program. AKASPORTS offers year-round sports activities for children of all ages. Whether you’re looking for after-school programming or summer camps, AKASPORTS has the fun events and venues to introduce your children to a range of sports and friends! Blaine Health and Wellness loves sponsoring this organization, and is happy to care for its participants!
