Chiropractic care also helps to keep children vibrant and healthy naturally. Whether your child has specific health concerns that need to be addressed, or if you would just like to ensure exceptional growth and development both mentally and physically, periodic chiropractic check ups for your child are important. The ultimate goals in caring for children include preserving their good health and preventing future problems.
In addition to wellness care, chiropractic has been shown to benefit children with ear infections, weakened immunity, reflux, digestive issues, colic and general sleep and temperament issues. Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine that many children develop and often times goes undetected until a problem arises. Regular checks up can detect and correct this condition before it harms your child.
Manipulations are extremely gentle and comfortable. Light force is applied to the spine to restore motion of the vertebrae and function of the nervous system that may have been compromised during pregnancy, delivery or early development. These vertebral fixations are what chiropractors refer to as subluxations. Subluxations can limit range of motion and function of the spine but most importantly can decrease the function of the nervous system and, in turn, decrease input to the brain. This can interfere with normal development and the ability to respond and adjust to one’s environment.
If you are concerned about your child’s health, or just want to give them the best opportunity to develop to their full potential, don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation or an initial evaluation. Chiropractic is a natural, safe option for keeping children vibrant and happy.
