Headaches/Neck Pain In Children

girl-504315_1920If your child is suffering from headaches and/or neck pain, chiropractic is a very viable, safe and natural treatment method. According to new research, joint dysfunction in the lower cervical spine (fixations and abnormal movement in the vertebrae making up the lower neck region) was significantly associated with neck pain and/or headaches in preadolescents. Chiropractors spend years learning spinal evaluation and have a number of highly skilled techniques to identify and care for spinal abnormalities including vertebral fixations and movement abnormalities. In fact, the majority of chiropractic treatments utilize chiropractic adjustments that are forces applied to the spinal vertebrae that aim to restore normal motion and correct fixations. Another interesting finding from this study – there was a wide variation in the child’s self-report of trauma history and neck pain and/or headache prevalence and their parent’s reporting. Thus, many parents don’t seem to be fully knowledgeable in their children’s aches and pain. If you suspect your child might be suffering from neck pain, headaches, or any other spinal pain or condition, be sure to question them thoroughly. If you find your child may be suffering, please call your local chiropractor today and see if safe, effective chiropractic care can help your child to be pain-free and healthy!
