Determining the cause of neck pain is not something to simply guess at.

What Neck Pain Means for a Child

Whenever a parent brings a child in for chiropractic care, the process for evaluating the child's symptoms is always a bit different than if an adult were to come in with the same issue. Since a child’s body is still growing, more care needs to be taken when delivering Chiropractic treatment to help the child both short and long term.

Most instances of neck pain in children are similar to what an adult experiences, and are caused by muscle strain, awkward sleep position, turn the head too fast, holding the head in a still position too long, texting, or falling while playing.

While some may suggest giving a child over the counter pain medicine when they have symptoms of a neck ache, there are several reasons to give chiropractic care a chance. At Jeranek Family Chiropractic, Dr. Janet Jeranek, our Kenosha chiropractor looks at the whole person when she decides which service or services a patient needs to correct the cause of pain and help patient’s recover from their injuries. She uses this approach with a child as well as with adults. In caring for a child’s neck pain, she may try a variety of approaches including

  • Traditional chiropractic care
  • Thompson Technique
  • Pettibon Technique
  • Activator
  • Corrective exercises
  • Physiotherapy techniques
  • Lifestyle advice and nutritional counseling

One thing that we don’t prescribed is medication. In many cases the treatment Dr. Janet Jeranek delivers is enough to take care of symptoms and have the child back to their regular activities in no time. When a child sees how chiropractic care from Dr. Janet Jeranek, a Kenosha chiropractor can make them feel better, they learn an important lesson that relief from discomfort is a two-way street, and lasting relief requires participation and commitment from the health care provider as well as the patient.

  • "My problems started two years ago and I couldn’t walk, I was stuck on a walker, almost bent in half. Dr. Jeranek has helped me very much. I feel better, I walk better, straighter, and without a walker, it’s a night and day difference. I would highly recommend seeing her."
    Myrna J. (female 82)
  • "I had a sore lower back for about a year and sore knees for about 4-5 years before I started seeing Dr. Janet Jeranek. Dr. Jeranek’s rehabilitative Chiropractic care has significantly improved my back pain and both my knees have shown very little pain lately. I am very happy that I can do all of my normal activities with more flexibility with very little pain."

  • "I am a semi truck driver and the seat bounces me around. The MRI showed that I messed up my discs in my lower back, I have been suffering from lower back pain for years. I started noticing numbness, tingling, and weakness in my left leg a few weeks ago. So I called Dr. Jeranek and she got me in right away. Now I am feeling great with not leg tingling, weakness, or numbness. Give her a try, you will be glad you did!"
