Chiropractor Questions Chiropractic Adjustment

Is chiropractic treatment safe for children?

My son is 15 and he wants to have an adjustment because he thinks it could help him with back pain. The only reason why he knows about adjustments is because of his friend who goes to a chiropractor as well. Is chiropractic treatment safe for teens his age?

Absolutely. You are never too young nor too old to receive Chiropractic. My nephew was two weeks old when he received his first treatment from me and I see many children in the practice on a regular basis.
Please find a chiropractor who got a special training with children.
Yes. Make sure an x-ray is done first.
Chiropractic can be very safe for teens and any age.
Oh my, YES!!! I adjust infants through great grandparents. It makes a huge difference in teens!! Get him to a Doctor of Chiropractic.
Simple answer: yes. We care for patients as young as newborns without any harmful side effects. To elaborate, when a patient of any age is properly evaluated by an appropriately trained doctor of chiropractic, there is so little risk of adverse reaction to chiropractic care, that malpractice insurance is cheaper for a chiropractor than car insurance.

Very safe. Timely intervention usually leads to better outcomes.
Chiropractic treatment is absolutely safe for children, teens, and adults. Proper examination should be performed prior to adjustment to determine medical necessity of the treatment.
I hope this info is helpful.

Take care and be well,

Yes, it is. It is actually beneficial for teens as they develop to reduce problems of the spine, nerves, and muscles later on into adulthood. Chiropractic is safe and effective from newborns to the elderly.

Yes Chiropractic is safe for all ages.
