Over the years, many of our chiropractic patients have asked if chiropractic would work for their kids. They have enjoyed the benefits of chiropractic care, and want to know if their children would experience the same positive effects. Some also worry that chiropractic isn’t safe for children, and are curious about the results they will see. Chiropractic can benefit every age group in your family, including your children. Here’s how:
CHIRO FOR KIDS
Chiropractic care for children is not a new practice, and is one that has been proven to be effective in treating a number of disorders specifically in children. For example, when subluxations are corrected, the discomfort that causes pain and crying is reduced and the condition of colicky babies has been shown to improve as a result of chiropractic care. Our chiropractic practice has also treated children with issues like sleeping problems, abnormal curvature of the spine, and gait problems. Chiropractic care is a natural and non-invasive form of treatment founded upon effective and gentle adjustment techniques that are safe for all age groups.
KIDS GET HURT!
It’s pretty cut and dry - sometimes kids just get hurt. Chiropractic can help with ongoing issues, and it can also restore your child’s health when he or she sustains an injury. Kids run and jump, they fall, they hurt themselves playing sports, and the list goes on. Chiropractic adjustments align the joints and spine and fixes the cause of the issue to get them back to feeling great.
OPTIMAL NERVOUS SYSTEM FUNCTION
Whether you are an adult or a child, when your spine is in proper alignment, your nervous system is better able to communicate as it should. When the spine is misaligned, additional stress if put on nearby nerves causing pain and negatively effecting the brain’s ability to communicate with the body. Chiropractic treatments fix these misalignments so the brain is able to communicate properly, allowing it to make the best decision’s for the body’s health. This is especially important for a child’s growing body, as it depends on a healthy nervous system during growth and development. Chiropractic can help your child achieve this as they grow from baby to healthy adult.
