Why chiropractic for kids?
Many health problems seen in adults began as early as birth. Even the most natural birth can stress an infant’s spine and developing nervous system. Many common health complaints such as colic, breathing problems, nursing difficulties, sleep disturbances, behavioral issues, allergic reactions and chronic infections can often be traced to nerve system stress (also known as subluxation).
The child’s first few years of life is a time of rapid development and constant adaptation. When the body’s ability to integrate or adapt to life stress is exceeded; the system stores the stress, compromising structure & function. When nervous system stress is released, the healing power of the body is unleashed: the immune system functions more efficiently, resistance to disease increases, and your child’s body functions more optimally. Your child can respond to environmental stresses such as germs, toxins, pollen and all the other stresses he/she experiences more efficiently. Getting adjusted also gives greater clarity of mind, making it easier for your child to focus, pay attention in class, learn and concentrate.
Chiropractic helps kids connect to the power within, supporting not only healthy body & mind, but also healthy self confidence, self-esteem and self
