What Is Pediatric Care?

Pediatric care is a medical specialty centered around children's physical, emotional, and social health from birth to adulthood. This branch of health ranges from preventative health care to diagnosing and treating acute and chronic diseases. Pediatrics deals with the prevention, early detection, and management of children's behavioral, developmental, and functional social problems.

What Can Pediatric Care Help Treat?

When it comes to pediatrics and general child care, parents can expect their children to receive preventative care and continuity of care. Children who undergo pediatric care also experience fewer emergency room visits and hospitalizations. Pediatric care can help treat:

  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Childhood diabetes
  • Childhood obesity
  • Seizure disorders
  • Sickle cell disease

  • The Benefits Of Pediatric Care

    Comprehensive pediatric care can present a wide range of benefits to infants and children. Not only can pediatricians help children avoid becoming severely sick, but they can also help detect early signs of slow-progressing diseases. The benefits of pediatric care include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Reduces mortality rate in children
  • Ensures correct immunizations for children
  • Facilitates child-to-pediatrician communication
  • Involves and engages parents in child’s care
  • Facilitates communication with other specialists
  • Helps with catching health problems early on

  • When To Seek Pediatric Care?

    Pediatric care is best sought shortly after birth. From this age, newborns should be visiting a pediatrician monthly. As infants grow, doctors visits can become more spread out. Pediatric visits should be once every three months for infants between nine and 18 months of age, once every six months for infants between 18 months and three years of age, and annually once they turn three years old. Seeking pediatric care as soon as possible for your child can help ensure that their development is on track.
