Chiropractic treatments are appropriate for Pediatric Sports Injuries, which are sports injuries in children.
Pediatric Sports Injuries in Children include sprained ankles, knee pain, low back pain, neck pain, headaches, shoulder pain, elbow pain, wrist pain and rib sprains. At Millar Sports Chiropractor treatment of sports injuries in children generally starts at about age 4 or 5, and extends right up to age 18.
Parents are encouraged to be in the treatment room at the same time as their children, particularly up to age 14.
The chiropractic adjustments performed on children under the age of 14 are age appropriate and are less vigorous than those performed on adults. The younger the child, the lighter the treatment.
By the age of 10, many children are involved in competitive sports and rely on a chiropractor to get them back in the game after they have suffered an injury.
