Chiropractor for Kids Bozeman, MT

Parents are used to treating their children's injuries, big and small, with the utmost care. But what happens when the injury is one you can't see? While we often think of children as invincible, they too run the risk of muscle or spine injuries, which can leave parents feeling unsure what care course to take.

As a chiropractor for kids, we do more than just treat an injury. At Absaroka Pain and Rehab, we utilize gentle, non-invasive chiropractic treatments that avoid medications unless absolutely necessary. While chiropractic care may be something you've never considered for your child's wellbeing, there are multiple benefits to seeking this form of non-invasive treatment.

Benefits of visiting a chiropractor for kids

Some benefits of visiting a chiropractor for kids are:

  • Helping healthy brain and nerve development
  • Relieving stress that hinders behavioral growth
  • Treating birthing traumas
  • Helping treat breathing difficulties
  • Treating an injury and providing a strong recovery
  • Helping to treat and prevent scoliosis
  • Boosting a child's immune system
  • Treating digestive issues, including excessive spitting up or lack of digestion as an infant
  • Treating colic symptoms as infants
  • Treating sleep disorders

Ensuring a healthy nervous and musculoskeletal system in children is imperative for healthy development throughout development. The spine is the superhighway of the body, connecting everything together. If the spine or nervous system sustains damage, there is a serious risk that the child will have direct and indirect health issues as they grow. Fortunately, our chiropractic treatment can help children recover and continue to grow up healthy and without any other hindering health issues.

Knowing when your child needs chiropractic care

Spinal or nervous system issues can develop through a variety of means, such as birth, accidents during sports games, or unexpected injuries. Often, people don't realize that the injury can affect the musculoskeletal tissues as well as the nerves, making simple movements much more painful for the child. Our chiropractic care effectively treats these issues to free the joints, restore motion and relieve pressure, all while considering the more fragile, but resilient structure of the child's body. Even better, our treatment offers you a route that will correct spinal alignment and optimal function without immediately turning to prescription drugs or surgery.

Supporting the emotional and physical needs of children

We understand that while most children can express that something hurts, they lack the vocabulary to accurately describe their pain. That's why seeking the expertise of a trained chiropractor who is accustomed to working with kids is essential. We understand how to examine a child and interpret their pain to reveal the underlying issue affecting them.

We also know a new medical office can be an intimidating place for a child and go above and beyond the put them at ease. We make sure to provide a comfortable and welcoming environment for the child in which they'll receive care. Our friendly team uses warmth, patience, and understanding to ease the child into the treatment.

During the consultation, we will examine the child and determine if our treatment can benefit the child's overall health. Once we determine the cause of the pain, we will begin to develop the treatment. We understand how nerve-wracking this process can be and will answer any questions. We put patients first during treatment and keep parents in the know with everything going on with their child. If you believe that your child can benefit from chiropractic care, give us a call at (406) 587-8446.
