If you are considering pediatric chiropractic care in Monterey, CA, Dr. Brian Rector and Dr. Abby Serpico of the Monterey Chiropractic Group have the skilled, gentle hands you need.

Importance of Chiropractic Care for Children

Chiropractic care is becoming a widely-accepted form of treatment for adults, as it’s known to treat pain, nerve and joint issues, and more. However, there is a group of people who aren’t receiving the benefits of chiropractic care: children.

Pain and suffering due to spinal alignment and nervous system health are common among adults. However, it’s not always addressed in children. The pain they experience is often contributed to growing or other child-related events. It’s easy to assume it’s temporary or that they’ll “grow out of it.” Sadly, this isn’t always the case.

Children spend most of their time playing – from video games to sports – and sitting at a desk. While this may all seem harmless enough, it can actually lead to postural conditions from sitting and slouching, injuries related to sports or games like hide-and-seek, spinal misalignment, joint dysfunctions, and more. Even babies can develop issues from traveling through the birth canal and being held without proper support.

These issues can cause further problems, including:

  • Headaches
  • Earaches
  • Sleep problems
  • Lower immunity
  • Asthma and allergies
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Behavior issues and more

How Pediatric Chiropractic Care in Monterey, CA Can Help

Dr. Rector and Dr. Serpico provide care that helps the body function and heal naturally, just as it was meant to do. Through spinal adjustments, therapeutic exercise, nutritional guidance, and a variety of other treatments, they help children achieve the following:

  • Healthier immunity and less sick time: Chiropractic services have proven effective in preventing and treating many common illnesses, such as colds, as well as digestive problems.
  • Improved focus: When there is undue pressure on your child’s spine, muscles, or nerves, it can negatively impact their ability to focus and learn. Through adjustments, that pressure can be released, allowing children to perform better in school.
  • Improved behavior: It can be difficult for anyone to be happy and act well when they are in pain or under stress. Chiropractic care can help relieve both, which can help to improve your child’s moods.
  • Healthier foundation: If babies do experience any misalignment during birth, it can cause issues for the rest of their lives. This can include sleep problems and acid reflux from infancy. Through gentle chiropractic care, a healthier foundation can be set in place.
