Family Chiropractor Visit At The Powerhouse Vancouver
As a family chiropractor, we love taking care of families at The Powerhouse.
Here is an example of a typical family visit.
We will typically reserve all the tables so all the kiddos and the parents can all get checked and have lots of room to spread out.
Why do we check kids?
- to promote proper growth and development
- to help with injuries from the birthing process
- to promote coordination through all the neurological steps within the first few years of life
- to help with common childhood problems of the ears, nose, throat
- to help after falls, sports injuries and other childhood trauma
Ultimately we see kids to help them be extraordinary! Our lifestyle choices for ourselves and our family matter. That’s why we love being a family chiropractor.
OUR ROLE AS A FAMILY CHIROPRACTOR
Many of the kids we check in the office first came in shortly after birth because their moms were under care during their pregnancy.
A great resource for parents wanting to know more about chiropractic and pregnancy or chiropractic and kids is the ICPA Portal (International Chiropractic Pediatric Assosciation), which we are proud members of.
Recent research reporting on mothers and their children undergoing chiropractic care from birth reveals that chiropractic may play an important role in positive health outcomes for families.
The research, reported in the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health – Chiropractic, includes a review of the literature supporting the role of chiropractic in childhood and family health.
WHY DO PARENTS SEEK CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR THEIR CHILDREN?
According to research “wellness care” is the most common reason why parents bring their children to chiropractors.
After that ear, nose and throat issues are close behind.
When most people think of chiropractors they tend to think of bone and joint pains however, the main reasons for pediatric visits to chiropractors are not bone and joint problems but things like wellness, respiratory issues, ear, nose and, throat problems, as well as other common childhood problems.
