Does your child complain of muscle aches? “Growing pains” is actually a deceiving name for the discomfort that your child might be feeling. Studies have shown that there’s no pain related to growth, and that the soreness is likely from overuse throughout the day. Regardless, Chiropractic can help!
Over the counter pain medications are of course typically prescribed to patients experiencing pain, sore muscles or discomfort. But with routine Chiropractic, the focus is on adjustments to minimize swelling and pain. Adjustments reduce misalignments of the spine and restrictions of joints throughout the body, which in turn improves the child’s nervous system and spinal health, making it much easier for their body to overcome growing pains.
Our integrated wellness plans begin with a consultation, exam and x-rays if necessary. One of our providers then recommends a unique wellness plan for your child’s needs. This plan includes recommended weekly/monthly visits, and specific wellness details such as time with our hands-on therapy team, rehab specialist or nurse practitioners.
Our entire team at Bay Area Wellness Center has experience with both adult and pediatric patients, however the newest member of our team, Dr. Daniel Marti, specializes in pediatric chiropractic and chiropractic for pregnancy. Give us a call to book with him today!
