Chiropractic Care for Kids

Care for children of all ages!

The benefits that can be provided by a pediatric chiropractor in Plainfield are immense. At Proactive Chiropractic Group know that the best way to ensure your child develops their full potential is to ensure the proper function of their nervous system. It’s common knowledge that kids are generally durable, but a lot of parents do not know about the long-term ramifications that misalignment’s in the spine can have on their children.

Regrettably, kids have trouble expressing the type of pain they feel or simply ignore when their body is experiencing significant discomfort. Children are not invincible, even the smallest misalignment can eventually develop into a more severe condition.

Children’s bodies are perpetually growing and as such deal with significant stress. A misalignment can start as early as in the womb. When a child is being born, they have likely already been curled up and then pushed or pulled out of the womb with significant force.

It is easy to imagine how this much force on such a tiny frame can lead to structural imbalances. Any type of interference in the spine result in babies having difficulties with the nervous system. The nervous system is essential to maintaining proper health.

Chiropractic Care for Kids, Toddlers, Children and more in Plainfield

Chiropractic care can be incredibly beneficial for your child’s health. After birth, the physiological stress progresses as babies develop into toddlers. They’re confronted with the hurdle of walking and running. While kids are learning how to conquer these hurdles, they involve a fair share of trial and error that can leave them exhausted physically. As toddlers develop into children, they frequently start to exhibit poor posture, playing physically rigorous games, carrying heavier books, and also deal with more responsibilities. In the blink of an eye, children become adolescents and graduate secondary school, not long after they usually get part-time jobs that require heavy labor as they transition into college.

The chiropractic team at Proactive Chiropractic Group knows that taking bumps and bruises as children grow is simply part of the process of growing up. We truly enjoy providing pediatric care for all children. We want to help safeguard your child from sickness and pain as much as possible as they grow and develop into young adults. Chiropractic care is not about keeping your children in a bubble, it’s about making sure your child’s body is built to endure whatever life throws at it. Our examinations are thorough and are suitable for children of all ages. Our staff is committed to providing your child only the chiropractic care that is needed and will talk over their treatment plan with you every step of the way.

Infantile Colic

Colic in infants is defined as persistent crying for over three hours daily, three times per week for three weeks or more – more commonly occurring at night. If a baby is facing discomfort, often they have no other recourse but to cry in an attempt to let you know they are not feeling well. It’s amazing how our chiropractor has had success calming infants after a few gentle adjustments that appear to treat colic naturally and effectively.

Pregnancy and Chiropractic Care

Uncomfortable often? Let us help you get comfortable.

Chiropractic care is often overlooked during pregnancy. However, due to the back pain that is usually associated with the stress of pregnancy, chiropractic can actually be very beneficial. A healthy pregnancy almost always comes with some degree of discomfort, but our experienced chiropractic team can ensure you have the most healthy pregnancy possible.

Prenatal Chiropractic Care in Plainfield

To prepare for pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes many physiological changes. Amongst these is a significant change in the balance of her body as a result of her normal weight gain. The issue arises from the placement of this additional weight. Since the baby resides in the uterus, this weight adds stress to the pelvic region of her body. As the pregnancy progresses and the baby develops, additional weight is placed in the area. Often this results in a substantial amount of pressure and a slight curvature of the back to compensate. Over a 9-month term, this imbalance can result in significant back pain.

Research shows that up to 7 out of 10 women deal with significant back pain during their pregnancy. This discomfort is often amplified during the third trimester due to the baby reaching its’ peak weight in the womb. Moreover, this additional weight can result in more symptoms than just back pain. Everything from cramping to digestive issues can accompany a difficult pregnancy.

And other Symptoms

Are you dealing with dizziness or vertigo in Plainfield? It can be difficult to find relief through conventional health care for this complicated condition. It is surprising that there is a dearth of resources available for the treatment of vertigo (dizziness) and even fewer therapies available for relief. Our chiropractic clinic in Plainfield is committed to providing that information to you.

A large number of patients who say they experience vertigo are usually experiencing one of two different phenomena. On one hand, individuals report feeling dizzy when they are feeling faint and other report feeling as if the room around them is moving in a circular fashion. Vertigo is used to describe the latter. Delineating both types of phenomena is important since each condition requires a different type of therapy.

Your chiropractor at Proactive Chiropractic Group has the experience necessary to diagnose what type of phenomenon you are dealing with and provide effective care.

Vertigo in Plainfield

Patients that visit our office can have a number of different reasons for experiencing vertigo, though there are some causes that are more typical. These are a few of the reasons the patients we treat have experienced vertigo:

  • Persistent headaches and migraines
  • Chronic ear infections or ear trauma
  • Poor cerebral blood circulation
  • Auto injuries
  • Misalignments throughout the spine

The aforementioned causes of vertigo may appear to be all over the place, however, they all have a common thread. Every affected area in each of these cases is a critical component in the body’s balance framework. When the body is out of balance, the muscle tissues throughout must work harder to compensate. While the body is resilient, eventually the imbalances begin to take a toll on health. In the case of vertigo, the body’s imbalances have begun to impede the nervous system from properly communicating with the brain to achieve balance. By realigning your spine with the help of a chiropractor, it is possible to restore the proper function of the nervous system and find relief from vertigo.

Vertigo Signs and Symptoms

There are just as many symptoms that accompany vertigo as there are reasons for experiencing the condition in the first place. Vertigo is a condition that can range from being mildly frustrating to completely debilitating. As such, it is imperative to visit a chiropractor if you are feeling any of the following signs or symptoms to ensure your condition does not worsen. These include:

  • Impaired vision
  • Impaired hearing
  • Tingling in ears
  • Poor balance
  • Constant fatigue

Our chiropractic clinic in Plainfield has had great success helping patients find relief from their vertigo. With our comprehensive approach that takes into account your medical history and a careful examination, we are able to pinpoint the cause of your vertigo and provide a tailored treatment plan that works.
