Care for Developmental Delays in Orange, Woodbridge, Milford and surrounding communities
What does chiropractic have to do with kids with Developmental Delays? The answer is everything! Kids that have developmental delays are under-functioning in so many ways and the largest and most consistent abnormality is in their MOVEMENT! At Balanced Health, we see amazing results by getting kids moving the way they are intended to move.
The most consistent finding in all kids with developmental delays is abnormal movement and muscular development! Kids with delays have abnormal development of Gait (walking), Posture, and Muscle Tone! What most people don’t realize is that the same areas of the brain that coordinate those movement strategies also coordinate ATTENTION, BEHAVIOR, and LEARNING. If your child does not move appropriately, they also cannot develop those other aspects as well.
Kids with Delays Have Abnormal Development of: Primitive Reflexes, Core Stability (muscle tone), Postural Reflexes, Vestibular Systems (balance, coordination), Eye Tracking and Stability, and Complex Movements!
At Balanced Health Family Chiropractic, we do an exam to assess these aspects of your child’s development, identify their weaknesses and develop a comprehensive plan to restore your child’s function to the best of their abilities.
The following techniques and activities are examples of what may be included in your child’s plan of care:
- Specific, Gentle Chiropractic Care
- Diet and Nutrition Modifications
- Gross Motor Development Exercises
- Balance and Coordination Exercises
- Hand-Eye Coordination Exercises
Every child has a different ability to heal. It is our goal to remove any interference to that ability, so they can heal and function to their potential.
