At Shadowood Chiropractic Center, our Boca Raton chiropractors provide care for the entire family, including patients of all ages and wellness needs. Our gentle, hands-on adjustments are safe for younger children and senior patients. Our family chiropractic services include injury rehabilitation, pain management, wellness care, pediatric chiropractic care and senior care.
Chiropractic for Kids Sports Injuries
Chiropractic adjustments are becoming an increasingly popular option for pediatric care, helping children and teen bodies heal safely following injuries from sports and athletics.
Dr. DellaBella is a world-renowned sports chiropractor who has treated Olympic and professional athletes. He applies this same level of care and skill when treating student athletes who have sustained a youth sports injury. Healing properly after a sports injury is especially important for young children with a developing musculoskeletal system. Without proper care, a knee injury or concussion sustained at age 14 while playing sports could still trigger pain 5, 10 or even 20 years later.
Ease Childhood Conditions Through Chiropractic
In their first year of life, a normal infant’s spine grows and develops nearly an astonishing 50 percent. This formative year can mean the difference between optimal health in your child or one who tends to suffer from chronic illnesses and discomfort from infancy to adulthood. Spinal misalignments can play a role in the occurrence of a number of childhood conditions ranging from colic and sleeping problems to ear infections and ADD/ADHD. However, by taking proactive steps by seeking out a Boca Raton chiropractor for kids, you can help your offspring thrive and have a healthier childhood experience through our gentle holistic chiropractic care.
The Benefits Of Chiropractic Care For Children
If you have ever had neck or back pain, you understand how debilitating it can be on a personal level, and children often suffer from spinal issues without even knowing it. By taking the time to see a chiropractor in their formative years, we can help keep their spine in tip-top condition. Just as in adults, spinal adjustments help promote proper growth and alleviate blockages that impede the functions of the nervous system. These blockages are often what sources many of the childhood issues below.
Common Infancy Issues
Sleeping problems, colic and nursing issues are common concerns parents face with a child in early infancy. While it’s still debated among medical practitioners, many patients seek out a chiropractor for kids and often report seeing improvements in these areas. Some chiropractors believe that while in the womb and during their birth that infants can develop spinal issues. Using chiropractic care to restore spinal alignment, our Boca Raton pediatric chiropractor is ready to help your child with the gentlest of care.
Chronic Ear Infections
Ear infections are painful for adults but especially so for children, especially those with chronic recurrences. Traditional doctors can provide antibiotics to kill the infection in the ear, however, this doesn’t resolve the issue of fluid buildup in the middle ear canal where bacteria breeds. With a simple adjustment of the neck and back, our chiropractor for kids in Boca Raton can help alleviate spasms in the Eustachian tubes which are the typical culprits for trapped ear fluid.
Chiropractic for ADHD Symptoms
Over activity within the central nervous system can send ‘mixed messages’ to the brain that can source over activity and inattentiveness in both children and adults. Chiropractic adjustments can restore spinal alignment to alleviate this over-activeness by restoring proper communication between spinal nerves and brain receptors. Many studies are coming to light concerning the efficacy of chiropractic care for ADHD symptoms.
Chiropractic adjustments are also beneficial for common pediatric ailments, including ADHD, colic and acute earaches. A spinal misalignment can trigger blockages in the nervous system that affects the brain’s ability to properly communicate with the body. By removing these blockages and maintaining proper spinal alignment, our family chiropractor can help lessen the symptoms associated with these pediatric health conditions. Pediatric chiropractic care is designed to help our youngest patients lead healthy, active lives.
Chiropractic for Seniors
Our chiropractic adjustments are safe for older patients and part of our senior care program. As we age, maintaining proper spinal alignment is more important than ever. At Shadowood Chiropractic Center, we do not believe that aging must be accompanied by increased pain and decreased mobility. Instead, our wellness care helps patients stay active well into their golden years. In addition to regular chiropractic adjustments, senior patients may also benefit from a corrective exercise program to build strength, coordination and balance.
Dr. DellaBella and our wellness team see first-hand every day the difference that proactive care can make for our patients’ health. While our Boca Raton family chiropractor has substantial experience treating sports injuries and chronic pain, our goal is always to prevent the occurrence of pain and injury in the first place. Chiropractic care not only is effective for managing pain, but it also increases energy levels, improves sleep, and reduces the risk for future pain, injury or illness.
A healthy body starts with a strong spine; family chiropractic care ensures that patients of all ages have this strong wellness foundation. From treating youth sports injuries to supporting senior wellness, our family chiropractor can make a difference for patients of all ages.
