Pediatric Chiropractic

If your child is suffering from any pain or you want to give them the best start possible in life, Dr. Maxine Helman offers gentle pediatric chiropractic care in Scarsdale, NY.

How Spinal Issues Impact Children’s Lives

From the womb to the playground, children’s bodies go through a bit of a beating. Sometimes, the journey to the birth canal isn’t exactly a smooth one and can impact their alignment. Every time babies take a tumble when they’re learning to walk and crawl, preschoolers decide to jump from the park swings, and little league football players get tackled, their small joints are jarred.

The beauty is that children are resilient. We see them get up, shake it off, and move on nearly immediately. Unfortunately, this is typically not the best solution. Every jarring motion they experience can lead to several issues, including:

  • Sleep issues
  • Inability to nurse
  • Developmental delays
  • Headaches
  • Digestive problems
  • Fatigue
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Asthma
  • Colic
  • Irritability
  • Bedwetting
  • Earaches
  • Allergies

Without proper care, these issues can worsen over time.

How Can Pediatric Chiropractic Care in Scarsdale, NY Help?

Pediatric chiropractic care with Dr. Helman comes in many forms, including spinal adjustments, massage therapy, nutritional guidance, and more, depending on the condition. Through personalized treatment plans, Dr. Helman can provide the following benefits and more for your child.

Healthier Immunity

The nervous system has a direct impact on the entire body, including immunity. A misalignment puts undue pressure on the nerves, negatively impacting the body’s ability to fight off sickness. By removing that pressure, the immune system can function as it should.

Brighter Future

Pain and pressure on nerves and muscles can influence your child’s ability to pay attention and learn in school. This can impact their grades and their brain development.

Chiropractic care can make it easier to concentrate and support their cognitive development, giving them a brighter future. It also promotes optimal physical health.

Better Sleep

Misalignment and pressure on nerves and muscles can impact your child’s ability to fall asleep, stay asleep, and achieve quality sleep. Chiropractic care can relieve that pressure to allow children to sleep better and can typically help with bedwetting.

These are just a few areas that chiropractic care can benefit your child, but they don’t have to be in pain or have obvious issues to get an appointment. Visiting Dr. Helman – even when your child seems to be in optimal health – can address issues you aren’t even aware exist and set them on the right path to health and wellness.
