Children and Chiropractic
Children are some of the biggest beneficiaries of chiropractic care. Surprised? Those who think of chiropractic as primarily a solution for neck and back problems are surprised to learn that chiropractic can be helpful for many types of childhood health problems.
As we progress through life our bodies are constantly changing and adapting. Often times, it’s not until adulthood that these changes from aging and injuries present themselves. Chiropractic care benefits all aspects of your body’s ability to be healthy as a child and as an adult.
Nervous System Disturbances
The nervous system, consisting of the brain, spinal cord and all the nerves of the body, controls and regulates the entire body. Many childhood health problems are merely the result of nervous system interference, usually along the spine.
—Have you ever wondered how your body coordinates, controls, regulates, creates and destroys the 100 trillion or so cells your body is made up of? How does your body know to kill a virus or bacteria and not your own cells or heal wounds and repair broken bones even stronger than before? All this is done thru the power and intelligence of our innate or inner wisdom.
The body operates with such perfection that most of us are completely oblivious to it. However, thru life’s physical, chemical and emotional stressors there can be interference of innate’s ability to fully function optimally. Chiropractic finds these areas of interference, restores balance and harmony, thus allowing your innate to function at its best. This is the meaning of chiropractic, working with you and not imposing anything on you. It is an inside out approach.
Many of the hard-to-correct problems we see in adults are long-standing problems that began, and remained undetected in childhood. Upon examination, we often find nerve disturbances associated with many types of common childhood health complaints.
Our gentle adjusting techniques help reduce these disturbances so your child’s body can resume working as it was designed. Better health is the natural result when the brain and body have clear communication pathways.
Traumatic Birth. Have your newborn checked shortly after birth to detect the effects of in-utero constraint, C-section, vacuum extraction or other aspects of a stressful birth.
Colic. Birth trauma, even from so-called “natural” birthing experiences can often produce a child’s first nerve compromise. Lacking the ability to communicate, your baby cries and cries.
Ear infections. Biomechanical restrictions in the upper spine can compromise the nervous system and immune system, making your child’s ears a breeding ground for viral infection.
Bedwetting. Nervous system compromise in the lower back can block nerve messages responsible for bladder control. Many children regain their confidence and self-esteem with chiropractic care.
ADHD. Many parents investigate conservative chiropractic care before exposing their children to psychotropic drugs. Reducing tension to the nervous system along with dietary changes has produced excellent results for many.
Asthma. By reducing neurological compromise to the bronchial tubes, lungs and diaphragm with chiropractic care, attacks can often be reduced or eliminated.
Growing Pains. Pain of any type is a warning that something isn’t right. While considered a “phase they’re going through,” it’s usually a sign that biomechanical stress to the nervous system is present.
Scoliosis. Instead of crude bracing or the all too common “wait and watch” approach, chiropractic care has helped countless children with this common disfigurement.
Wellness. An obvious symptom isn’t required! Enjoy the peace of mind of having your infant or child checked to uncover structural or neurological problems before they become serious.
Reducing nervous system tension can improve virtually every aspect of your child’s performance.
