A lot of people are surprised when they hear we take care of children in our office. It is something a lot of people have never considered! However, a growing percentage of the population is utilizing chiropractic care from birth and beyond for both health challenges and prevention.
Since the nervous system controls and coordinates everything in the body (including development and healing), shouldn't we make sure that a child's nervous system is working properly?! The spine is the most common place in our body that can interfere with this system. Chiropractic care is a wonderful way for parents to help their child grow, develop and heal at maximum potential. By addressing the spine, we can remove interferences to a child's nervous system and allow their entire system to communicate properly.
Evidence from chiropractic offices throughout the world shows that children can benefit from chiropractic care, even if they already have a health challenge. Think about all of the children with ear infections, colic, asthma, acid reflux, ADHD, developmental delay, migraines, torticollis, and other problems. If their spine is putting pressure on their nervous system and interfering with their body’s normal functioning, then chiropractic can help them!
No health challenges? No problem! Chiropractic is a great way to keep the body functioning at a high level to prevent problems from developing. We always say, 'its easier to grow healthy children than to fix injured adults'.
