Chiro, Kids and the Elderley
As a family based practice, we are fortunate to treat people of all ages ranging from young babies and infants to our more senior citizens. Children and the elderly can suffer from spine and nerve related symptoms just like anyone, however the treatment may vary depending on the size and age of the patient, and on the degree of bone density. Even an elderly female suffering from Osteoporosis can receive Chiropractic treatment, however her treatment will most likely differ from that of a twenty year old male football player.
Chiropractic in infants and adolescents may be beneficial in the treatment of simple back pain, neck pain or headaches. Posture is our main focus with school age children and postural assessment and early diagnosis are crucial in children of school age. This is a particular area of interest at Corrective Chiropractic. In the Elderly, Chiropractic may be of benefit in people also suffering from back and neck pain with headaches, but may also help relieve pain from Arthritis, Sciatica, pins and needles or numbness as well as hip, knee and shoulder problems.
Chiropractic adjustments are extremely safe both historically and statistically when conducted by a trained professional, however a thorough history and examination must be carried out to rule out any risk factors and to confirm the patient is a safe candidate for Chiropractic, whilst also ensuring the cause of the problem is correctly diagnosed.
