If you have a child and you believe they may benefit from a chiropractic adjustment for a sports injury they recently suffered from, reach out to us at American Family Spine and Health in Concord, NC, to make an appointment with our children chiropractor at your earliest convenience. Here are the steps our chiropractor may take to help ensure your child's health is treated appropriately.
Our chiropractor will ask you for information about the sports injury your child sustained to determine what course of treatment is suitable for recovery. If you have your child's report from a physician they had seen after the injury, present this to our chiropractor so that there is information about any past treatment. Our chiropractor will likely ask about your child’s medical history so be prepared to answer any relevant questions concerning current health conditions.
Our Chiropractor Will Conduct an Assessment
Our chiropractor might ask your child to perform a series of easy exercises to determine the range of motion he has in the area of the body where the sports injury had taken place. This may be helpful to determine whether a chiropractic adjustment is the best option for treatment.
Adjustments and Other Treatments Are Provided
Your child may benefit from a chiropractic adjustment to reduce stress on joints in the body. This treatment can be beneficial in stopping pain and discomfort in different parts of the body. Soft tissue mobilization may also be administered to aid in the recovery of muscles. If your child needs to restrict activity, our chiropractor will make a recommendation to have him refrain from moving around until the body starts to heal. We might ask for additional appointments to be made to keep on top of the progress your child is experiencing as the body heals. Additional chiropractic adjustments may also be helpful in stopping discomfort caused by the injury.
