Is Chiro good for teens, or must they be adults to start? Chiropractic care is a great alternative for people of all ages, especially adolescents. Teenagers’ bodies experience pain associated with rapid growth, strain from carrying heavy backpacks and looking at their phones, sports injuries, and other events that can damage their overall health.
Here are some reasons while every teenager should visit a Chiropractor.
Active teens are prone to injuries, which may be addressed by a prescribed pain medication. While medication can be the right solution in many cases, it usually comes with side effects or dependency. Regular chiropractic adjustments ensure proper spinal alignment, reducing pressure on the nervous system and effectively managing pain, especially for growing bodies.
It is inevitable that teenagers are always looking at their phone. Most teens spend hours each day with their neck strained forward and down to look at a screen. Poor posture and pain can also result from slouching, sitting too much, watching too much tv and other activities. A chiropractic adjustment helps realign the spine and addresses imbalances caused by poor posture. A chiropractor can also explain the importance of better posture in their daily lives, which can avoid degenerative conditions in the future.
Most chiropractors encourage good nutrition, exercise, sleep, and stress relief as part of an overall health. By bringing your teen to the chiropractor, you are setting them up to develop good health habits for life.
Good health is a lifelong journey and starting chiropractic care at a young age can help ensure your child grows without pain, heals efficiently, and develops good habits that will last.
