Many people are unaware kids are excellent candidates for chiropractic care.
Why should children receive chiropractic care?
The nervous system, which consists of your brain, spinal cord and nerves, controls everything in the body, including growth and development. Infants, children and adults can all experience subluxations or misalignments in the spine. Infants and children can become subluxated from birth trauma, other minor or major traumas and developmental stress. These subluxations cause stress to the nervous system which can lead to a decrease in function of the affected area.
During the first five years of life, the body produces more neural pathways than at any other time. It is vital this production is optimized as the first few years are crucial to each child’s potential.
Should healthy children receive chiropractic care and at what age?
The youngest child I have adjusted before was only about one month old. I have also seen toddlers all the way up to teenagers as well. Mind you kid’s adjustments are very different from the adults. Now, think back to when you were a kid, how many bumps and bruises, falls and slips did you take as a child?
If you ask my mother, it was probably in the thousands! Each fall or bump has the possibility of misaligning or subluxating the spine, thereby affecting the nerves and the functioning of the body. These misalignments should be corrected as soon as possible. Optimizing the nervous system, whether you deem the child “sick” or “healthy,” will lead to many positive results. Increased energy, decreased symptoms of ADD/ADHD and a heightened immune system are some of the positive, potential results from chiropractic all children should enjoy.
Don’t forget that only a healthy child will develop into a healthy adult. If there are signs of postural abnormality, pain or decreased range of motion and decreased functioning please do not associate it with growing pains. Send your child to be checked by a certified physician as soon as possible. At the Chiropractic clinic, many conditions can be treated in children only if it is caught early whiles their bones are still developing.
