What’s Pains Growing?

Achy legs holding your baby up at night? They can get can pains. The effect of increasing can be restless nights with 
ailing and throbbing calves, shins and thighs in school-age babies.

Although the name is deceiving, growing pains do not often occur when development occurs, or during times of rapid development. Studies have shown that growing pain can be myth, linked to the restless syndrome of the leg that occurs during the day as result of over activity.

Why can chiropractic treatment improve increasing pain to children?

Chiropractic treatment can be a wonderful way of treating and relieving swelling and discomfort from increasing injury. Routine chiropractic treatment is a convenient, non-invasive , non-addictive alternative for children to prescription or over-the-counter pain drugs (OTCs), which are typically administered to patients to help them control their pain and swelling.

Chiropractors provide a gentle, non-invasive , non-addictive therapy, which is known as a chiropractic adaptation. Chiropractic adjustments reduce joint restrictions or misalignment in the spine and other body joints in an effort to reduce inflammation and improve both the affected joint and nervous system function. Through-joint stability and enhancing the function and health of your nervous system and spinal cord, the body has the potential to better control symptoms caused by through pain.

Below are some of the health benefits of chiropractic treatment, and chiropractic changes can bring growing pains to children:

  • Joint motion and synchronization strengthened
  • Joint malaise and pain relief
  • Flexibilisation improved
  • Reduced inflammation
To see if chiropractic treatment is appropriate for your child’s condition, the chiropractors at RECO SPINAL CENTRE will perform consultation, test and refer you to medical testing such as x-ray or MRI, if necessary.
Depending on the findings of our chiropractic review and consultation, your chiropractor may want to co-treat the growing pains of your child with other healthcare professionals including massage therapists, physical therapists, or other primary care physicists.
