Kids and Chiropractic...Naturally!
Chiropractic and Kids…a natural partnership for lifelong health and wellness. From pregnancy, through the birth experience and into all the “adventures” of childhood…chiropractic has been demonstrated to be safe and effective to address many of the health challenges that are experienced by a child just growing up!
“Natural” birthing and vaginal delivery is the preferred way to bring a baby into this word but it can create stress on an infant’s spine and nervous system and may contribute to many of the common conditions observed and reported by parents of newborns. Colic, breathing irregularities, and nursing difficulties may be traced to an element of nervous system stress.
As the infant grows and moves and takes more control over the developing skeletal, muscle and nervous systems, activities like holding the head up, moving limbs and head positions can all affect spinal alignment and can contribute to some complications with posture and muscular control.
Childhood trauma or micro-trauma can have a profound effect on a child’s growing skeletal and muscular systems and if addressed early on can pro-actively manage complaints and prevent further complications and spinal irregularities. Sports activities and injuries should be addressed and then monitored with chiropractic care to resolve the issues and provide the kind of supportive care that is needed for those aspiring teen and young adult athletes.
The nervous system controls and coordinates the functions of all the life-promoting and life-enhancing systems in the human body. Chiropractic care addresses the health of the entire body with a major focus on the full and healthy functioning of the nervous system, addressing any nerve impingement or interference.
