Neck and shoulder pain

 

Children seldom complain of neck and shoulder pain.  When they repeatedly do it is a “RED FLAG” that something is wrong.  One of the most common cause of neck pain in my office in a child close to the age of 10 is bad posture.  Overuse of  TV, computers and other electronic devices can force the neck to hold itself in unhealthy positions for long periods of time.  This can cause abnormal positioning of the bones in the neck and loss of proper motion, which can cause pain, muscle spasm and arthritis when they are older. Chiropractic care has proven to be the most effective means of correcting and managing the damage done to a young spine from bad posture.

 

Low Back pain

 

Children seldom complain of back pain.  When they repeatedly do it is a “RED FLAG” that something is wrong.  One of the most common cause of back pain in my office in a child close to the age of 10 is scoliosis.  Scoliosis is an abnormal curve in the spine.  Chiropractic care has proven to be the most effective means of correcting and managing the damage done to a young spine from scoliosis.

 

Headaches

 

One of the most common cause of headaches in my office in a child close to the age of 10 is bad posture.  Overuse of  TV, computers and other electronic devices can force the neck to hold itself in unhealthy positions for long periods of time.  This can cause abnormal positioning of the bones in the neck and loss of proper motion, which can cause muscle spasm and pain that can be felt in the back of the head. Chiropractic care has proven to be the most effective means of correcting and managing the damage done to a young spine from bad posture.

Car accidents

 

Children tend to recover from injuries much quicker than adults.  It is still important to at least have them examined after an injury just to make sure everything is ok.  Children do not always complain of pain after an injury so don’t depend on that.  Get them checked out as soon as possible. 

Sports Injuries

 

children playing sports today are in a high demand, brutally competitive environment.  We are seeing more and more “adult injuries” in children today.  If not taken care of properly they can set themselves up to have problems that are not normally seen in children. If you are not sure give us a call.  Dr. Marquez would be more than happy to talk with you.

Trouble sleeping due to pain

 

If your child cannot find a comfortable sleeping position your child may have something more serious going on. It is not normal for a child to complain of pain while going to sleep. Get them checked out today.

Children

 

wither they are a new born that have just undergone the most traumatic event of their new lives, the birth process or are older child  involved in contact sports or repeated one-sided activities chiropractic can help.  Dr. Marquez has six children of his own and is experience working with children.

Scoliosis

scoliosis_intro01

Unfortunately, the most common treatment approach has been to wait and see how bad it gets.  The chiropractic approach is to use specific spinal adjustments, often combined with corrective exercises.  If detected early enough, chiropractic doctors have had excellent success with scoliosis cases.   Signs that your child may have scoliosis include “growing pains” or one hip or shoulder lower than the other.   If you are unsure give us a call.

Colic

 

the birth process may be one of the most traumatic events of our lives.  Even so-called natural birthing methods can stress a developing spine.  The resulting irritation to the nervous system can be the cause of many newborn health complaints.  Colic, unexplained crying and poor appetite among others can often be traced to nervous system dysfunction caused by a malfunctioning spine.  Chiropractic care can benefit a developing baby and help reduce the complications of labor.
