Chiropractic Is For Kids Too!
Parents will do just about anything to protect their child’s health, and with an increase in chronic childhood diseases, more and more parents today are seeking alternative health care, with Chiropractic being on top of the list.
Kids Will Be Kids
The strain on a child’s spine and their first subluxation can start as early as during the birthing process and statistics will say that it is the most severe trauma the average person will experience.
Children are by nature active and energetic. They run, jump, tumble and fall. Since their bodies are so flexible and resilient, they often show nothing more than a bruise or scrape. But that is on the outside!
On the inside, the body has been jarred with considerable force. The small bones forming the spinal column (which protects the central nervous system’s spinal cord) can be forced out of their proper positions. Some will return to the correct position on their own. Others will remain “stuck” in an incorrect position, which is when more severe problems can develop, such as colic, ear infections, asthma and allergies and breathing difficulties, ADD/ADHD, bed wetting, sleeping issues, scoliosis, frequent colds and flu, stomach aches & sore throats to name just a few.
Is Chiropractic Care Safe For Children?
Yes! There have been several research studies verifying the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic care for kids.
Chiropractors have been helping kids of all ages lead healthier lives for over 100 years. It is never too early to bring your child in, nor is it ever too late! It is not uncommon to stop by the chiropractors office on the way home from the hospital with a
new infant or right after school following a playground tumble.
Some adults may wonder why more and more children are starting to see chiropractors. That’s a good question and the answer is simple….Whether we have a large spine or a tiny little spine, if that spine is creating pressure on a nerve, any nerve, then our magnificent bodies may not operate smoothly.
We all want the best for our children. We want them to be happy and intelligent and popular. Most of all, we want them to be healthy. That means making regular chiropractic checkups a part of their health care routine. Long term, they will also be more likely to monitor and manage their health as they grow up and have a much healthier lifestyle.
