Pediatric Chiropractor

Chiropractic care is highly recommended for anyone looking for a more holistic option for healthcare, but if your body is under constant stress then it is strongly recommended. Children, for example, are constantly growing, changing, and falling, and so their bodies are in a state of constant stress. People who incorporate regular visits into their health care are on average healthier than people who do not. Not only can chiropractic care be used to treat chronic conditions, but it can be very valuable as preventative care If you have a curious toddler or an energetic child, then contact Total Wellness Solutions, Sandy Springs, GA, and Dr. Melissa Arnold can help you address any concerns regarding your child’s growth. 

What is a Pediatric Chiropractor

A pediatric chiropractor is a chiropractor specially trained and certified in infant chiropractic care to treat spinal issues and health conditions. Childbirth, for example, can be a very stressful experience for newborns, not just mothers, that could result in the development of spinal issues. The stress that was placed on the infant’s spine may result in various discomforting conditions, but working with a chiropractor can help to heal any trauma that might have been caused by the birthing process. 

As kids grow older and explore the world their bodies will change and grow, so working with a pediatric chiropractor can help set them up for a healthier lifestyle. Having their spine monitored and adjusted regularly is not only beneficial but can act as an important part of preventative care. 

What can a Pediatric Chiropractor Treat? 

Depending on the type of complications or condition, a chiropractor may be able to help improve symptoms. For example, if tension develops in certain areas, it can result in sleep problems or insomnia. Working with a pediatric chiropractor to alleviate the tension can improve sleep quality.

Pediatric Chiropractic care and Dr. Melissa Arnold

Dr. Melissa Arnold is a licensed, board-certified Chiropractor with over 20 years of experience. Her practice focuses on holistic healthcare, which means treating the patients while considering all facets of their health. For example, in addition to chiropractic care, Dr. Arnold might also collect patient nutritional information and provide nutritional suggestions for improving overall health. This can be especially beneficial for first-time parents who might be unaware of the complete types of nutrition their child should be receiving. 

Dr. Arnold is also extremely committed to natural care. This means she does not use prescription medication to dull her patients’ symptoms, instead she attempts to understand the presented list of symptoms in tandem with information obtained from an examination, and then recommends the best course of treatment. So if you are looking for a treatment that does not rely on medication and pain management then chiropractic care would be ideal for you and your children.
