Children and Chiropractic

Chiropractic care for children is extremely important! My wife and I have three healthy, happy kids and could not imagine knowing what I know, not getting their spines checked on a regular basis.  None of them have had any ear infections, colic, asthma, allergies, or have yet to take any medications.  Can You believe it?  NO Tylenol, No Advil, nothing!  Now if they were to have a serious injury or illness, of course medications might be necessary.  Parents that get their kids adjusted notice that their kids get sick less often and are on less medications.

Is Chiropractic Safe For A Child?

Yes! Chiropractic is one of the safest forms of a child’s health care.   It is a safe, gentle, drugless, and preventative approach to maximize an individuals overall health and well-being. Even though the principles and philosophy are the same for a newborn and adult, the adjustments techniques are completely different.  A newborn’s spine is fragile which is why a Doctor of Chiropractic applies a very light and gentle touch.  Typically, the Chiropractor will use an Activator adjusting instrument or with his/her fingertips.

Why Should I Take My Child To A Chiropractor?

Well, I often ask parents that I talk to “Would you want your child to be as healthy as possible from day 1?“  Of course, they respond with a “YES!”  So, I go and explain that the nervous system is the master system; controlling and coordinating every organ, tissue, and cell in the body.  The delivery process alone especially difficult deliveries like vacuum distractions, forceps, and c-sections can be traumatic to a newborns spine and nerve system. Left uncorrected, can set the stage for future health related problems. 

How many times does a child fall before learning how to walk?  MANY!  I also know kids fall out of cribs, off a bed, out of a high chair, down the stairs and so on.  These falls can result in undetected spinal injuries.  There’s a saying I use, “As the twig is bent so grows the tree

Your child’s spine grows almost 50% in length during the first year.  This is equivalent to six-footer growing to nine feet in just 12 months! It’s this tremendous growth and developmental changes, why it’s so important to get your child’s checked by a Chiropractor.  If there is an injury and adjustments are made to your child, there will be a less likely chance of it becoming a serious chronic condition as an adult.

How Effective Is Chiropractic Care For Children?

The benefits of Chiropractic adjustments for infants, adolescents, and adults are the same.  Chiropractors make adjustments to areas in an individuals spine that are misaligned (subluxations).  Subluxations interefere with the function of the nerve system.  Once corrected, the nerve system has the greatest chance to allow an individual to fully express their inborn health potential.  It is very common to see children with ear infections, colic, asthma, allergies and many other conditions get better with Chiropractic care. Through regular adjustments, proper nutrition , exercise and maintaining correct posture a chiropractor can help a child grow structurally and functionally sound.

Think About It……  What Would Your Kids Teeth Look Like If They Seen A Dentist For The First Time In Their 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 0r 60’s?  Black, Rotten and Decayed With Teeth Missing. I  See Adults For The First Time That Are In Pain With Spines That Are Decayed, Degenerated, Lots Of Scar Tissue, and Muscle Spasms In Multiple Areas!!
