Rehabilitation for Children and Teens
Dr. Sarro provides chiropractic treatment when medically necessary to children and teens. Children with injuries and high school athletes can benefit from chiropractic care. Dr. Sarro treats young patients for various complaints of pain and movement. They typically respond rapidly to short term relief care.
Birth, delivery, crawling, walking, falling and playing sports can all be traumatic events. Children are very flexible and can absorb a lot of tumbles, however trauma can lead to abnormal movement and posture. This can cause pain and interfere with the ability to play sports.
Additional reasons for a young person to have a chiropractic exam include poor posture, sports injury, headaches, scoliosis, neck pain, torticollis, back pain, agitation, and ear aches.
Chiropractic treatments are modified based upon a persons size and stature. Small children require only very slight gentle pressure for treatment. We are interested in only the areas of the spine that need correction. All other areas are left alone. Chiropractic treatment can resolve pain and sports injuries and reduce the need for pain medications.
