Spinal Health For Optimal Growth & Development

Dr. David Pico, DC treats pediatric patients of all ages with natural & gentle chiropractic care to support growth and development for a thriving healthy child. He has over three decades of experience as a certified pediatric chiropractor and is a long time member of the International Pediatric Chiropractic Association. Spinal health checkups and care allow for optimal neuro function through all the stages of childhood from infancy, toddler, adolescence.

Infant spinal health checkups following birth are extremely important considering the high amount of stress that is placed on the baby’s body during the birth process. Whether there are complications requiring intervention, prolonged labor, or unusually fast labor, the likelihood of an infant receiving more physical stress than he/she can accommodate safely exists. Physical birth stress at this most delicate time when the muscles are not able to withstand much pressure can result in structural imbalances to the cranium, cervical spine, TMJ joint, or other areas of the spine such as the pelvis. These structural problems will in turn affect the function of the neuro muscular system. Function problems in newborns can often first be detected in feeding difficulties or head turning preferences to name a few.

As a toddler develops into a crawling then walking and running child, chiropractic care ensures that the spine and wider musculoskeletal system are properly aligned for full range of movement, proper balance, and strong muscles that make injuries less likely to occur. Falls during these early years are very common and a child may not be able to communicate effectively of an imbalance. Yet, a spinal check can detect and correct for optimal growth and development.

Children into adolescence experience the effects of sports on the spine. Injuries can impair range of movement and balance in the body. Spinal health checkups keeps the body performing at its best level. Carrying heavy backpacks on one shoulder, poor desk ergonomics, and text neck are common complaints for this age group.

Spinal Checkups Can Detect & Correct For Best Function

Undetected and uncorrected problems can over time lead to an array of avoidable problems such as:

  • Colic/reflux/digestion issues
  • Torticollis
  • Developmental delays
  • Chronic ear infections
  • Breathing problems
  • Sleeping problems
  • Poor posture problems
  • Sport injury problems
