The Parent’s Guide to Chiropractic Care in Wilsonville

In partnership with traditional pediatrics, chiropractic care can offer your child a solid foundation for a lifetime of good health and well-being. Below you will learn more specifically about chiropractic for children and how it can benefit your child today.

How does chiropractic work for children?

Whether your child is just learning to walk or they are deciding what college to attend, their spinal column is made up of 24 independent vertebrae that enable them to twist, bend and move throughout the day. It also protects the delicate central nervous system that controls the body’s ability to grow, repair, and function at its best by communicating with every cell, tissue, and organ of the body.

Subluxations of the spine, commonly known as joint dysfunctions, occur when two or more vertebrae become restricted and impede the body’s ability to communicate with itself. Joint dysfunctions in a child can be caused by everyday activities throughout their development cycle.

Falls while learning to walk, championship wrestling with dad, lugging an oversized backpack around, and staring down at their phones are all great examples of activities that put the body in situations that can negatively affect the spine and proper nerve communication throughout the body.

Chiropractors are trained to locate and correct joint dysfunctions by applying a gentle, targeted movement to the body’s spinal column and extremities, where and when needed. This non-invasive technique is commonly known as chiropractic adjustment.


How can my child benefit from chiropractic care?

Parents and pediatric physicians alike, look to chiropractors to help establish a natural, drug-free foundation that can have immediate and long-term benefits for their child’s health.

Chiropractic could help with these common childhood ailments:

To see if chiropractic care is right for your child, the chiropractors at West Chiropractic & Wellness will perform a consultation, and examination and if necessary, refer you out for diagnostic imaging such as an x-ray or MRI. Based on the findings of our chiropractic exam and consultation, your doctor of chiropractic may elect to co-treat your child with other healthcare professionals such as your pediatric physician.
