Chiropractic care is not just for adults. In fact, chiropractors can help kids with a variety of health problems. There are many benefits of chiropractic care for kids. For example, chiropractic care can help improve kids' posture and alleviate pain. Chiropractic care can also help boost the immune system and improve overall health.


If you are thinking that a chiropractor may be able to help your kids, be sure to find one who is experienced in treating pediatric patients. Pediatric chiropractors are trained to care for kids of all ages. They can provide gentle, effective care that can help your kids feel their best.

At Back Specialists, we realize what kids do to their bodies as they grow and play. This is why we are committed to staying one step ahead of them along this growth process. The world places lots of demands on kids from learning complex material to sports and recreational activities.


Children and teens are just as vulnerable to health complications from spinal issues as adults. Chiropractic care throughout childhood creates healthy lifelong habits.

Chiropractic care for children is about restoring function.  Health isn’t able to be fully expressed with a lack of function.  Function is defined simply as proper posture, as well as proper range of motion in all spinal and extremity joints.   Thereby maintaining full communication via the nervous system through the proprioceptive pathways from the brain to its destination.  This process is also known as,  above – down – inside – out.


At Back Specialists, we focus on the treatment of the child and not the condition.  In a perfect world, we would treat the child prior to the symptom rather than after.  That, of course, begins during pregnancy as the child is developing and dependent upon the mother’s nervous system for proper function.  In order for a child to meet his or her full potential, interference and function need correction.  Chiropractic care accomplishes this in harmony with their growing body.

Alternative health care in the form of Chiropractic is much more than a spinal examination. Your chiropractor at Back Specialists can also examine and monitor the growth of your child’s body, address important nutritional needs, offer correct exercise programs and help to prepare your child for a healthy adulthood. Contact us today to learn more about how your Sioux Falls chiropractor is dedicated to helping children in South Dakota.
