Chiropractic Care for Young Athletes/ Youth Sports

Pediatric Chiropractor for Athletes

When it comes to sports injuries, there are many different types. It's important to get specialized care from a chiropractor that not only specializes in dealing with athletes but can also get to the root cause of your specific pain and provide chiropractic care. This is especially true with children and young athletes who might suffer from pain due to a sports injury or other ailment.


At Lakewood Ranch Chiropractic in Bradenton, FL, we're here to help our clients by providing care by a trained Bradenton chiropractor. Through advanced chiropractic care for young athletes, our pediatric chiropractor can help your child find the relief they need to live free of pain and get back out on the field again.

Does My Child Need a Pediatric Chiropractor?

Young athletes can be susceptible to sports injuries that are extremely dangerous, can cause serious damage to their developing musculoskeletal system, and that can put them at risk of re-injury. If an injury is left untreated, it can be difficult to play at the same level as before or even live free of pain.

It's not a good idea to ignore an injury and continue playing as normal. Unfortunately, many children might be hesitant to visit a chiropractor and get chiropractic care out of fear. Fortunately, a trained pediatric chiropractor can help young athletes ease their anxiety and provide treatment.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

Through chiropractic care, your child can experience relief from pain associated with sports injuries, growing pains, and even stress.

A pediatric chiropractor on our team can provide treatments including:

  • Muscle massages to help relieve sore muscles, decrease inflammation, and boost natural healing.
  • Spinal adjustments, which are effective at realigning the spine and improving posture and balance. These treatments can be safe to use on young athletes and children when conducted by a trained pediatric chiropractor.
  • Muscle exercises to help strengthen the muscles, improve mobility and range of motion, and ensure the injured muscle does not stiffen or re-injure.

A pediatric chiropractor on our team will also help determine the extent of your child's injuries and provide the best advice to help them recover. This can include a combination of chiropractic treatments done in the office, and recovery exercises to do at home to speed up the healing process.
