Chiropractic Care for Teenagers

Dr adjusting patientThe body is designed to self-heal and organise. This means your teenager has everything they need within them to feel and function well. However, what we also know is sometimes life can be tough! Accumulated stressors on the nervous system may wreak havoc on a growing brain and body—leading to diminished health. Many of our teens and their families join Advanced Health Chiropractic looking for answers.

With our in-depth analysis and understanding of nervous system function, we are able to assess how well your teenager responds to stress, the effects of accumulated lifestyle stressors, their resilience, and potential for health, while also measuring their energy efficiency and autonomic function.

Following our analysis, we can best advise you on how to support proper health and development for your teenager through their formative years.

What Does an Adjustment Do?

An adjustment simply stimulates the nervous system to clear any interference between their brain and body. From here we aim to build momentum so that your teen is better able to unwind from stressors, has a better capacity for life and overall increased resilience.

This is the best way we can help your teen.

In the early stages of care, we are likely to see them more frequently, as they build momentum for change and create healthier brain patterns. These patterns determine how well your child can think, feel, perform, and respond. For many, the adjustment is like magic! This is one of the main reasons families consistently choose our practice for incredible health results and lasting change.

Addressing Stress

The level and accumulation of daily stressors teens are exposed to can impact their overall health. This may show as outward signs of struggle or symptomatic presentations.

Some common forms of stress may include

  • Physical Stress—such as posture, sports, injuries, carrying heavy school bags, device use, accidents, repetitive positions, and their own birth
  • Chemical Stress—such as medications, hormonal changes, food choices, environmental toxins, body and care products
  • Mental, or emotional stress—such as friends, family, relationships, changes in life or routine, school work, past experiences, worries at school, exams, and general life stressors and worries

Stress is a normal part of daily life however, an abundance of different stressors, combined with a diminished resilience to appropriately respond, may result in many of the common health challenges we see among this age group.

Chiropractic care focuses on the nervous system and enhances the ability to adapt to stress, we aim for less health challenges, and healthier, happier teenagers. This is the core reason many parents choose chiropractic care at Advanced Health Chiropractic to support their growing teenager.

The Many Benefits of Care

The way a teen responds to stressors directly depends on the robustness of their nervous system. At our practice, we use INSiGHT CLA scans to measure and assess their level of nervous system function. From there, we can determine how well your child responds to stressors, where they may be struggling and why, and what steps are necessary to get them functioning well and feeling great.

Many of our families report much happier kids—and parents!—Chiropractic care during the teenage years is a passion of ours with regards to learning, attention, sleep, gut health, sports performance, recovery (illness and injury), and general wellbeing.

Setting Health Goals

At your initial visit, we obtain all the information needed to find the best frequency for your teen. This depends on your health goals, lifestyle, and the level of function determined by our INSiGHT CLA scans. Generally speaking, kids and teens build momentum for change much more quickly than adults.

We can’t wait to celebrate your child’s progress with you along the way, and will continuously measure their function to establish the most appropriate frequency of care.

Once an ideal level of function has been achieved, most of our families choose regular wellness care as part of their health regimen. And they love the benefits!
