SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb. 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Scottsdale chiropractor Dr. Daniel Secrest, D.C. of Secrest Family Chiropractic reports that he has successfully helped several children manage and overcome a number of illnesses through pediatric chiropractic care. He says gentle, movement-based spinal adjustments have helped pediatric patients, from babies to adolescents, to find relief from everything from chronic ear infections and colic to ADHD, autism-spectrum disorders and common childhood "growing pains" and injuries. Dr. Secrest, D.C. says his pediatric patients find treatments comfortable and that parents are glad to find effective non-drug therapies for difficult-to-manage childhood health problems.
"Spinal alignment in babies and children is huge because the spine is still growing and changing, and children can easily experience a subluxation that will pinch nerves that affect their health," says Dr. Secrest, D.C. "Parents with children who've struggled with a health problems that weren't getting better through conventional treatment came to us for help and were relieved when we finally got to the root of, and solved, the problem."
Dr. Secrest, D.C. says that there is a wide range of painful childhood health concerns that can be successfully addressed through chiropractic care. He says that he has helped children recover from colic, gastrointestinal problems like constipation, chronic ear infections, allergies, asthma, headaches, and even growing pains in the legs, arms and back.
According to Dr. Secrest, D.C., parents and children alike are often surprised at how gentle and comfortable the pediatric chiropractic adjustments are. He says that the amount of pressure applied to the spine differs depending on the size of the child and the condition being treated. In many cases, he adds, the amount of pressure is no more than one would comfortably apply when gently rubbing a closed eye. Depending on the area to be adjusted, Dr. Secrest, D.C. says he may use an adjusting device that delivers small electromagnetic impulses to move the bones into place, or he may use his hands, or even just his fingers. He says that children can be adjusted when lying down, sitting up, or even when moving around.
"The important thing to remember is that children's spines are still growing, so the best thing for preventing health problems in children is regular chiropractic checkups," says Dr. Secrest, D.C. "This keeps kids' spines in proper alignment and gives them a much better chance to thrive physically and mentally."
