One thing that can confuse parents when they start to look into Pediatric Chiropractic is that there seem to be a few different models or methods out there. Just like in the rest of health care, there are various specialties and levels of expertise. And with that can come variation in the recommendations for care. 

 

The one thing that truly does set a Pediatric Experience (PX Doc) Chiropractor apart is their understanding of what’s called neuroplasticity. Or simply put, the science of neurological health and healing. 

 

No different than how it takes time, frequency, and repetition or being in class and doing homework for a child to excel in school, or hundreds of hours of practice for a child to become great at a particular sport… the same is true when it comes to excellent nervous system function. 

 

So how often should I bring my child in for adjustments?

So the answer to how often you should bring your kiddo in for an adjustment is… it depends. Just like everything else in life, every kid (and therefore every family) is unique and will progress at their own pace. However, in general, we find that most families do best on what’s called a wellness schedule. 

 

This means coming in for regular adjustments as preventative care to keep things functioning well, rather than waiting until your kiddo is sick or injured to seek help. 

For some families that may look like once per week while they are working on specific goals like increasing learning ability or reducing nighttime wetting the bed. 

 

For other families that may mean coming in every other week as maintenance care once things are functioning well. And still for others (particularly those who live further away), it may mean coming in monthly or even quarterly for tune-ups. The key is finding what works best for YOUR family based on YOUR unique situation and goals!
