Pediatric Chiropractic Treatment
Many people visit the chiropractor for the first time as an adult after dealing with back or neck pain for years or after a serious injury, like a car accident.

Common Reasons for Pediatric Chiropractic Care in Arizona
Chiropractic care for children sets the stage for a lifetime of wellness and good health.
The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association indicates that routine chiropractic care can improve a child’s:
- Latching Problems
- Neurodevelopmental disorders
- Immune system function
- General health and wellness
In addition to supporting wellness, chiropractic care can help children overcome many common childhood ailments. For instance, ear infections are often caused by subluxations in the neck and upper cervical region, trapping fluid in the ear. Adjusting these areas can help the ear infection resolve on its own, without relying on antibiotics. In one study of children who had ear infections, 93 percent improved within 10 days of receiving chiropractic care, without the need for antibiotics.
