Children's Health

Give your child the gift of optimal health.

The early years of your child’s life are critical for their future health, especially when it comes to the development of their spine, joints, bones, and muscles. Preventative care is key to avoiding spinal problems that can lead to joint immobility, back and neck pain, headaches, delayed motor skills, growing pains, and sleep disorders.

A comprehensive spinal assessment with Health Collab

At Health Collab, we understand that your children are constantly growing and changing, which can be a challenge for you as parents to keep up with. That’s why we take pride in providing special care to assess your child’s spine and create a personalized program to meet their unique needs and health goals. 

From the moment your child is born, their spine begins to develop, making it essential to ensure that their musculoskeletal and nervous systems are properly balanced. As they reach different milestones, such as taking their first steps or scoring their first goal, it’s important to celebrate these achievements while also ensuring that their bodies are functioning at their best. 

By carefully assessing your child’s spine, we can identify any potential issues early on and create a specialized program to help them achieve their optimal health. Our goal is to ensure that your child is able to grow and develop without any limitations, so they can fully enjoy all the exciting experiences that come with childhood.

What does a child’s assessment usually involve?

During your child’s spinal assessment, your practitioner will first gather information about your child’s medical history, including any current complaints or concerns. This is done through a discussion with both you and your child. Next, your practitioner will perform a physical examination to evaluate your child’s posture, musculoskeletal system, and neurological function. This comprehensive assessment allows us to gain a complete understanding of your child’s spinal health and any potential areas of concern that may require treatment.

What does treatment usually involve?

Chiropractic care for children is gentle and non-invasive, consisting of gentle adjustments, mobilizations, and exercises if necessary. By prioritizing preventative care and seeking out gentle chiropractic treatment when necessary, parents can help set their children up for a healthy future.
