Why Chiropractic Care is critical for kids who play sports

Bottom Line:

Youth sports are a big deal!
It's estimated that over 45 million kids are actively engaged in sports!

While sports give kids a fantastic opportunity to grow socially and physically, they also increase risks for injuries, pain from overuse, and muscular imbalances.

Finding proactive ways to reduce the risk of injury and balance the effects of training are essential for your child's developing musculoskeletal system.

Why it Matters:

Your child's skeletal system is actively developing until they are approximately 25 years old.
Their postural habits, history of injuries, and genetics play a role in their body's final form (and function).

Sports have the potential to add a significant amount of stress and increase the chances of injuries for your developing child.
Even small injuries to their spine can create bigger challenges down the road as they get older.

To recap:
 Addressing minor injuries and challenges while your child is young can help ensure proper
musculoskeletal development.
 Youth sports can increase your child's likelihood of developing overuse, growth plate injuries, and
chronic pain.

Next Steps:

Chiropractic care is another safe and natural way to help your child stay active and perform their best.

So don't shrug it off if your child complains of back pain, headaches, or a stiff neck.
Pain is a signal to "Pay Attention Inside Now."

Our practitioners are experienced at evaluating active children and creating kid-friendly care plans.

Together, we can help your child stay engaged with their favorite sports for years to come.

Dr. Andrea has been a lifelong advocate of chiropractic care ever since she saw the difference it made in her younger sister’s life when she was just a child. After her sister was diagnosed with epilepsy and prescribed medication to treat the condition — which turned her into a shell of her former self — Andrea watched in amazement as chiropractic treatments stopped her sister’s seizures and negated her need for medication. From that moment on, Andrea knew she wanted to be a chiropractor so she could share the body’s amazing ability to heal itself with as many people as she can.
