Why is Pediatric Chiropractic so important?

We all have this thing called a nervous system and it is becoming increasingly important for us to find ways to take care of our nervous system because worldly pleasures definitely don't help us... From preservatives in foods, lack of sleep, stress, and physical activity, our bodies take a beating! While it is important for adults to maintain chiropractic care, it is EXTREMELY important that children are introduced to Chiropractic care as early as day 1 and continue chiropractic care throughout their lifetime. During infancy and childhood, there is rapid growth and development of the spine and nervous system which is why this is so important. As you know, your spine is what protects your spinal cord from damage- your spinal cord consists of millions of nerves and fibers that run from your brain down your entire spine and is responsible for sending your entire body information. It is basically how your brain communicates with the rest of your body. Subluxations, or misalignments, in the spine can lead to communication interference causing an array of issues. This is a big deal when we are talking about the growing and developing bodies of infants and children. Some benefits of Pediactric Chiropractic include: sleep issues, colic, earaches, acid reflux, asthma, allergies, ADD/ADHD, and behaviors such as wetting the bed. Infants and children are very resilient and tend to respond to chiropractic care rather quickly. Even if your child is not presenting with any symptoms, it is still important to get your child adjusted as a preventative measure against future issues that could arise. On top of all these wonderful benefits, Chiropractic is very effective for aiding in immune system health! So what are you waiting for??
