Kids Need Chiropractic Care Too!
It is important to teach children how to live a healthy lifestyle. Chiropractic should be a part of a health regime as it is great for kids, and can be a drug-free way to keep your children healthy. Providing your child with the knowledge and a strong example of how to maintain a healthy body will be a gift that never stops giving. Chiropractic care for kids is a great way to promote healthy living and deal with common childhood illnesses and injuries without using drugs or surgery. Chiropractic is perfectly safe for children.
Think about it, how many tumbles and falls do children experience from before they turn 1 year old throughout childhood? A lot! Babies fall when they are learning to walk, toddlers tumble regularly, and kids are bumped around at playgrounds and in sports, and fall down often. These falls that may cause bumps and bruises do not always cause much pain or serious injury; however, they can cause misalignments in the body and spine.
Regular chiropractic care can train a child’s bones, joints, nerves, and muscles to function to the best of their ability. Kids don’t need a lot of care because most will respond quickly and maintain their health. Healthy children should be seen once every other month just to keep their spine in healthy alignment. Chiropractic care helps the body to heal itself from activity, sports, injuries, illness, and other stresses our bodies endure.
Chiropractic has also been known to help common childhood illnesses including ADD / Hyperactivity, Allergies, Asthma, Back Pack Safety, Bed Wetting, Colic, Common Cold/ Flu, Digestive Problems, Ear Infections, Growing Pains, Injuries/ Accidents, Nursing Difficulties, Scoliosis and many others. How? Because the health of our spine and the immune system are connected. Misalignments in the spine can cause communication issues between the nerves that run from the spinal cord to the organs and limbs. The tissues in these areas are eventually affected, and this is when we start to see some of the above conditions.
