Yet chiropractic care is just as beneficial for children as it is for adults. Pediatric chiropractic care from a Norcross chiropractor is a safe and natural way to improve the overall function of the body in children and adults alike. It is a great way to ensure that the brain and body can communicate well to ensure healthy, growing, thriving children.

However, Norcross chiropractor Dr. Esther Widjaja is very gentle and precise in her adjustments, using no more force that you would to press on a fruit to check the ripeness of it.

There are numerous benefits of chiropractic care for children. Just like adults, children also experience pain and dysfunction within the body that can affect their ability to learn, inhibit their growth, affect their immune system, cause chronic pain, and so much more. Parents are searching for answers for how to help their children be their healthiest. A study conducted on over 880 children with symptoms such as anxiety, fatigue, and pain found that regular visits to a chiropractor helped to drastically reduce their symptoms and improve their overall health and wellness. It’s not just young children and teens that can benefit from chiropractic care from Norcross chiropractor Dr. Esther Widjaja; it’s also pregnant mothers and infants as well. Another study found that pregnant women who were under chiropractic care were more likely to have a faster and easier labor. Their deliveries were also less likely to require birthing interventions, which is better for both mom and baby in the long run. Older children also see amazing benefits of chiropractic care, especially if they struggle with ADD, ADHD, or sleeping at night. Removing nerve interference that disrupts communication in the body can help the brain and body function together to improve sports performance in children and even the brain’s ability to learn. The possibilities are endless when it comes to improving the health of children through pediatric chiropractic care.
