Chiropractic is great for kids. Children love coming to a chiropractor and getting their spines adjusted. Chiropractic treatment for babies and children is carefully adapted to their growing bones. It is safe, gentle and effective.
Most parents take their kids for routine visits to the dentist for check-ups. Yet this was not always the case. It has only been in the last half century that the concept of Preventative Dentistry came into being. Like wise, the concept of Preventative Chiropractic care is just now being recognized for its great value in preventing illness and disability.
As with visiting a dentist before tooth pain develops, a spinal check-up performed by a chiropractor could prove to be valuable in the life of your child. Not only is their trauma in childbirth itself, children are constantly falling, jumping and running.
Chiropractors have traditionally been identified with back pain and adults. The role of children and chiropractic has been relatively non-existent. However, the spine, which houses the nervous system, functions to control the entire body. If problems interfere with this system, any messages traveling throughout the nervous system, via the brain to the spinal cord to the body and back again, are impaired. This interrupts the normal, healthy actions and functions of the human body.
Many children visit us to find relief from ear infections, allergies, asthma, attention problems, bed-wetting, back/neck pain and headaches. Although, chiropractic does not treat specific symptoms, we find that a healthy immune system results in an effective defense mechanism.
