Helping Healthy Kids to Grow into healthy adults
We don’t often think of why it is necessary for children to receive chiropractic care. However, we all know that the birthing process can be traumatic. This is why we love seeing children even just a few days after they have been born to be checked for misalignments. Checking an infant for misalignments is as gentle as testing the ripeness of a tomato!
Chiropractic kids have the best start to life! As children grow and develop they are experiencing stressors on their bodies. These stressors can come from the many falls and tumbles they experience while learning to crawl, learning to walk, or going through their many growth spurts. Maintaining alignment of the spine during these developmental years allows their body to maintain optimal nervous system health and can help improve behavior, sleep, and immune system function, and many other health concerns.
Overtime these stressors can contribute to ailments such as such as colic, infantile reflux, trouble latching, recurrent ear infections, and bed wetting, amongst many of other things. We strongly encourage parents to get their children checked so they grow up with healthy spine structure and optimal nervous system function. We love seeing kiddos in the office so we can help them grow happy, healthy lives from the inside-out!
