NY Chiropractic & Physical Therapy is committed to providing its young patients the best possible care, using safe, gentle and drug-free methods. Frequently, area pediatricians refer their young patients to the practice for chiropractic care related to a wide variety of childhood ailments. Many children first encounter chiropractic care as a result of trauma from an injury, and chiropractic intervention can be greatly beneficial in aiding a child’s recovery process. But many other applications of chiropractic care for children have become common, including the use of chiropractic for treatment of acute earaches, headaches, sleep disorders, scoliosis, asthma and allergy symptoms and patterns of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Whether your child is suffering the consequences of an accident or sudden illness or dealing with a chronic condition, chiropractic care can often provide comfort and relief. Promoting musculoskeletal health will also have positive implications for your child’s future, as proper spine alignment in early childhood may delay or prevent degenerative bone or joint disease in later years. Introducing children to the benefits of chiropractic care at an early age can instill positive, lifelong health habits.
