Pediatric Chiropractic Care | Tigard, OR

Effective & Safe Pediatric Chiropractic Treatments

Tigard Chiropractic is proud to provide safe and effective chiropractic treatments for all ages. Just like adults, a child’s spine can endure stress, resulting in pressure on the nervous system. This stress can result from trauma at birth, falls, sports injuries, vehicle accidents, and more.

Pediatric chiropractic care differs from adult treatment and uses far less force, if any at all. Our chiropractic care for children, babies, and teens is tailored to the child’s age and weight. Light pressure is gently applied to restore movement in the spine and relieve discomfort.

In addition to pain relief for injuries and trauma, chiropractic treatments are a great way to address immune system disorders and treat colic, bedwetting, constipation and other GI problems, headaches, scoliosis, and more.

Safe Treatments

According to the American Chiropractic Association, pediatric chiropractic treatments are safe and effective. Whether your child has sustained an injury or is struggling with a condition or disorder, chiropractic treatment helps realign the body, strengthen the immune system, and alleviate the severity of symptoms.

Holistic & Drug-Free

Chiropractic treatments are gentle and safe for all ages. They are also a drug-free, holistic treatment that differs from traditional medicine. For trauma, sports injuries, and other discomforts that may require pain medications, chiropractic care is a great alternative.

Wellness Care

According to the study, The Safety And Effectiveness Of Pediatric Chiropractic: A Survey of Chiropractors And Parents In A Practice-based Research Network, 46% of children and teens attend chiropractic appointments for “wellness care” purposes. 26% receive treatment for musculoskeletal complaints, with the remaining percentages using chiropractic care to address ENT problems, GI issues, colic, or immune dysfunction.

Gentle Treatments

Chiropractic for Babies

If you have never sought out a chiropractor for your infant, then you may be unaware that chiropractic treatment for babies is not only safe, but highly effective. Infants can start chiropractic treatment soon after birth, and it may be recommended in some instances.

Childbirth can be traumatic for both mothers and babies. A vast majority of infants experience some level of subluxation (dislocation) of the neck or spine at birth. While subluxation may sound scary, it is a normal occurrence after both vaginal and c-section delivery. Symptoms of misalignment of the neck or spine in babies include fussiness, acid reflux, spitting up, trouble latching, constipation, and colic.

Chiropractic treatment for infants does not involve force and is very gentle. It is one of the most helpful practices for helping infants adjust to life outside of the womb. During pregnancy, a baby is curled up tightly and held in a restricted position for nine months. After birth, a baby’s spine, ligaments, and muscles are fully elongated for the first time. This transition can cause stress on an infant’s body, particularly in the spine and neck.

At Tigard Chiropractic, we offer safe and effective chiropractic treatment for babies and newborns. Our evidence-based practices involve specific adjustments applied with non-force. We encourage you to schedule pediatric chiropractic services to pursue holistic, natural, and effective relief for your child.

Scoliosis treatment for children in Tigard, Or

Holistic Treatment for Scoliosis

Scoliosis in Children

Scoliosis is a common condition that prompts parents to seek out a pediatric chiropractor. Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine that can cause both physical and emotional pain. Symptoms include one shoulder being higher than the other, as well as shoulder, back, and/or leg pain.

Early detection is the key to treating scoliosis effectively. We encourage you to schedule an appointment with our pediatric chiropractor for a consultation. Scoliosis steadily worsens over time, so it is important to test for it often, even when there are no visible signs.

Traditional medical approaches to treat scoliosis may involve braces, surgery, and other invasive treatments that may be painful and expensive. The chiropractic approach to scoliosis is different. Certain adjustments improve the function, structure, and mobility of the spine, allowing posture to improve as the muscles are strengthened.
