Pediatric Chiropractic Care
Is chiropractic care safe for children?
Yes, chiropractors with pediatric training are skilled in identifying the issues most likely to occur in children and to provide the most appropriate treatment to relieve pain and other symptoms while promoting optimal growth and development throughout childhood and adolescence. From infancy through the teenage years, pediatric patients are undergoing a period of rapid growth and development, and being able to identify potential problems early is the best way to keep growth and development on the right track. In addition, chiropractors can help children remain more active by relieving pain and promoting greater range of motion. At Mid Atlantic Chiropractic Center, we use the safest, most effective approaches for pediatric chiropractic care to help every child enjoy the best possible health as they grow.
Can chiropractors identify and treat scoliosis?
Yes, chiropractors are skilled in the management of scoliosis and its symptoms. Routine spinal adjustments, postural corrections and other techniques can help relieve the aches and pain associated with scoliosis and regular office evaluations can be useful in monitoring the spine to check for changes in its curvature so the most appropriate treatment can be provided.
How often should a child see their chiropractor?
A child should visit the chiropractor any time they experience pain or discomfort in their back, arms, legs, neck, shoulders, hands or feet so symptoms don’t interfere with normal physical activity or schoolwork. Routine chiropractic visits can be helpful in identifying many musculoskeletal issues in their early stages so they can be corrected. Plus, chiropractors are also skilled in treating chronic conditions like asthma and allergies and acute illnesses by promoting better nerve signaling and circulation so natural healing processes are optimized and long-term use of medicines and antibiotics can be avoided. The medical needs of each child can vary based on their age, activities and other factors, and a skilled chiropractor can be instrumental in establishing a care routine that addresses each child’s needs as they grow.

Hi, my name is Marcie Dove, and this is my son, Woodrow. And we came to Mid Atlantic Chiropractic because Woodrow has asthma and the pediatrician wanted to continuously put steroids into him, and my husband and I didn’t agree. So, we found Doctor Rashidian, and he has been able to make it so Woodrow has gone through an entire winter and a switch into the spring and has not been sick, not had to go to the emergency room, and has not been on any steroids since we started with Doctor Rashidian. I would highly recommend coming here, and bringing your children, as well. Thank you.
So we started coming to Dr. Rashidian about two years ago. When I was pregnant, he was telling us about bringing the boys in when they were born and he was going to help them sleep at night. We were a little hesitant because they’re very small, and I had only come to the chiropractor when I was 34.
So, as it got closer to the time that I was supposed to go back to work, they were still not sleeping through the night, and we decided to give it a try. We started with Boston, and he immediately slept through the night in the first adjustment, so, of course, we made a quick appointment to have the second one, Benni, come to get adjusted. And now, they’re going to be a year old, they sleep through the night, about 10 to 12 hours, and they’re regular, and they don’t feel sick often, so we feel like the chiropractic care helps. And now we come about once a month, and I try to keep my appointments so that they sleep through the night.
