Adolescent Chiropractic Care

Many school-aged children spend their days sitting at a desk, carrying a heavy bookbag, and participating in sports and other activities. They may rarely complain of pain, but these daily activities often take a toll on their growing bodies just the same.

What to Expect

Your 7–17-year-old child’s experience at Worcester Family Chiropractic will be very similar to yours. We begin with a conversation that you will be a part of and physical examination and determine the best course of treatment from that information. Depending on your child’s age and preference you can accompany them in the adjusting room or wait for them in our comfortable waiting area.

“As the mother of a 15-year-old suffering persistent upper back pain due to tumbling, I was desperate to help my daughter manage the pain. We consulted her pediatrician, we tried pain relief creams, massage, and ibuprofen. She experienced some relief but never anything that lasted more than a few hours. I was reluctant to try chiropractic care because I did not know if it was appropriate for children. However, I met Dr. Brittany at a business event and I immediately trusted her. Dr. Brittany is extremely knowledgeable, but perhaps more importantly, she is easy to talk to and I knew my daughter would connect with her. At our first visit, Dr. Brittany took the time to identify the source of the pain and to explain the treatment plan to my daughter and I. After just two treatments my daughter began to experience lasting relief from her pain and was able to sit through a school day pain-free. We continued with the treatment plan and my daughter was eventually able to resume tumbling without being limited by pain. We could not be happier with the care we received from Dr. Brittany.”

“I brought my 9-year-old son, now 11, to see Dr. Brittany because he was experiencing some back pain from playing baseball. I loved how kind and easy spoken she was with him, from explaining what technique she would be using on him and why to her knowledge of child chiropractic care. Since starting care, his pain has decreased significantly, he complains a lot less, and he has been able to be more in motion with less pain! My son and I are so happy that we found a doctor like Dr. Brittany who we can see truly cares about her patients and makes a treatment plan that’s effective and enjoyable. He’s happier and healthier with each adjustment. Thank you!!”
