Chiropractic care is vital for a child’s development. Children need a properly functioning nervous system free of interference.
Many people are surprised when they hear that children can be helped with chiropractic care. Chiropractic care is vital for a child’s proper development. Just as adults need a properly functioning nervous system, free of interference, so do children. Traumatic birth syndrome is actually very common and often unrecognized as a cause of numerous health problems. It’s also interesting to note that only chiropractors are properly trained to detect and correct the subtle, yet very significant misalignments and nervous system imbalances than can occur either in the womb or during a “normal” birth. “Normal” obstetrical procedures involve pulling the newborn baby out by the head. Your child was meant to be gently pushed and guined out, not pulled! The resulting spinal subluxations can be the cause of newborn health complaints like colic, ear infections, and allergic reactions, even poor appetite and unexplained crying.
When To Bring Your Child In:
- After birth
- Milestones: Teething, Rolling, Sitting, Crawling, Pulling Up, Walking and new developmental stages.
- Immune System: If there is a symptom, bring them in!
- Trauma: as soon as possible.
- Attitudes: Subluxations can produce unreasonable behavior.
The spine is the lifeline of the body and structure = function. If there is any nerve blockage along the spinal cord then a state of disease will develop. Disease causes a generalized weakening of your child’s body which can manifest in your child as a lowered resistance to illnesses such as colic or ear infection as well as hyperactivity or other behavioral disorders.
