Youth who participate in sports need specific treatment for the types of physical stress and injuries that can occur. Whether your child has experienced a sports injury or they are having other issues related to their activities, it’s important to find a pediatric chiropractor who can help.
There are many benefits to young athletes when they receive chiropractor care. Rebarber Family Chiropractic, with convenient locations in Highland Park and Princeton, NJ, is here to explain just a few of them.
It’s a good idea to visit a chiropractor as a way to prevent injuries before they happen. If your child has a misaligned spine, it can lead to balance issues, nausea, dizziness, limited motion in their back, legs, or neck, and tingling in their extremities. Even if your child doesn’t have any of these symptoms yet, they’re sure to benefit from a spinal adjustment.
Discover the Patient’s Source and Severity of Their Injuries
There are many young athletes who will continue to be involved in sports even when they’re dealing with a serious or potentially serious issue. They may think they only have a simple strain or sprain when it’s actually a serious injury. Someone may even continue to play when they have a concussion because they think it’s only a headache. In this instance, it’s best to bring your child to the chiropractor’s office so they can get a consultation to determine what’s going on.
Get a Spinal Manipulation
Sports tend to require a constant level of movement. However, you can’t score the winning goal when you have a limited range of motion. For this reason, you’ll want to get spinal manipulation work for your student athlete. Your child will be able to stretch muscles easier when they’re not sore or tight.
A Shorter Recovery Time
Children who play sports usually want to get back to it quickly after an injury. This can be a dangerous action to take. Our chiropractic team will assess the issues and develop a treatment plan so that your athlete will be able to get back to the game as soon as possible.
Chiropractic adjustments such as heat therapy, laser therapy, massage therapy, spinal decompression, and more from our professional chiropractors are just what’s needed to improve your child’s prognosis.
