At My Family Chiro, we focus on holistic health for the entire family. We treat a wide range of individuals, from infants to elderly adults, and offer safe, effective, and natural health and wellness solutions. Our St George, UT chiropractor is experienced in the chiropractic treatment of a wide variety of ailments that both children and adults face, and can be an integral part of keeping your entire family healthy and feeling good.
Chiropractic care is an excellent solution for growing babies and children who are experiencing certain health issues, or when you want your child to receive holistic healthcare in order to maintain a high degree of wellness. The balance between the muscles and joints is particularly important while children are growing, as is the integrity of a child's nervous system. As a child grows, the bones and nervous system responds to this accelerated growth, and chiropractic care can help a child's body develop optimally.
The basis of chiropractic care is the same for patients of all ages, however, the amount of force used to achieve the desired results varies greatly from patient to patient depending on age and health conditions. The amount of force used to adjust an infant's spine may be the same amount you would use to test a ripe tomato at the store, while the amount of force to adjust an older child or an adult would be much more. Patients with brittle bones or certain health conditions may need less force during an adjustment. At My Family Chiro, our seasoned chiropractor is able to evaluate each patient individually to determine the best course of treatment, whether the patient is a newborn, a child, a teen, an adult, or an elderly person.
Although you can visit your chiropractor at any time, there are some key developmental stages you'll want to bring your children in for and some scenarios that may require additional chiropractic treatment.
Bring a newborn in directly after birth in order to ensure that a baby's spine is properly aligned after the trauma of the birthing process
Bring your new baby in every three months during their first year of life, or after important milestones such as crawling, learning to sit up, or walking
Bring your baby in after any sort of trauma, such as a fall, or if you notice balance problems
Bring your older child in every 6-12 months for wellness visits
Bring your older child in after any trauma, or for treatment for common childhood problems like ADD/ADHD, growing pains, ear infections and colds, scoliosis, bed wetting, autism, and sports injuries
Adults can discuss with their chiropractor a customized treatment schedule based on any conditions or injuries that the adult has
Chiropractic care for adults is tailored to the adult's specific needs at the time and will vary over time
