We’re all familiar with allergies, bed-wetting, asthma, colic, ear infections, stomach-aches, sore throats, colds and, the other one-hundred and one ailments that children experience as they develop.
The purpose of chiropractic is to remove any interference that may be occurring to the natural healing power running through the body. It is important to understand that the doctor of chiropractic does not treat specific diseases or conditions. The knowledge and expertise of a chiropractor is used to check the child’s spine for misalignments that impair the nervous system function, therefore, affecting the overall body function.
Oftentimes chiropractors are asked if the chiropractic adjustment hurts the child. The answer is no. Chiropractors specializing in pediatric care use very specific and gentle techniques to care for children. On the very young, the adjustment is as light as a finger touch and often not noticed by the patient.
Parents of children who have received regular chiropractic care report seeing improved behavior and attitude, improved sleeping habits, and an overall improved immune system. Chiropractic care for children offers your family a solid foundation for wellness. Throughout pregnancy, birth, and childhood, the chiropractic lifestyle offers benefits for you and your children’s greater health and well-being.
