Most people recognize the importance of Chiropractic care for adults, but for children? Infants? Really???
The benefits of having children, specifically babies, checked by a chiropractor who specializes in pediatrics are many. Gentle specific adjustments are important in developing a strong immune and skeletal system. Misalignments of the spine, AKA “Subluxations” limit the function of a child’s nerve system and can lead to bigger problems as they grow.
A common question that we hear in our office is “Why adjust a baby? Do they have back pain?” The answer is on rare occasion, but not usually. The birth process is potentially the first time an infant can have stress as they come into our world. And, as we all know with little ones, childhood is a time full of falls, trips and even traumas. Physical, emotional and even chemical (toxic) stress experienced as a young child could cause Subluxations. This will affect internal organs, mental health, strength, balance and overall resistance to disease. Statistics show that nearly half of all babies have had a fall from a significant height (off the changing table, bed, high chair, etc). Think about it, we take our children to the dentist to get their teeth checked to be proactive in preventing cavities; wouldn’t we also have our children’s spines checked to prevent and/or detect early spinal damage?
There are many *case histories of Chiropractic helping children with all kinds of conditions; asthma, colic, ear infections, ADD, autism spectrum disorder, and many other neurological conditions. No matter what the condition, consistent Chiropractic adjustments can help. Although it is not a “treatment” for any of these conditions, by removing nerve pressure caused by Subluxations, the body is able to function correctly…it is that simple!
In fact, the best time to start getting adjusted is in the womb! Chiropractic has been shown to be very beneficial during pregnancy. It can help ensure that the mother’s body is aligned and balanced so that the baby has the proper nerve communications and the maximum amount of room in which to develop. *Clinical research reveals that breech presentations have been corrected as a result of specific pelvic-balancing procedures. As stated earlier, the pulling and twisting during delivery, can be the first cause of Subluxations in a baby’s spine. This can damage their delicate nerve and structural systems. Even “natural” birthing methods can cause spinal misalignments. Chiropractic will give the mother and child the potential for the most comfortable and efficient pregnancy and delivery possible.
There are many different kinds of chiropractors, some who specialize in personal injury and pain and some, like us, who specialize in wellness and life enhancement for families. We know that by keeping you and your children “Subluxation free”, your bodies will function, grow and recover better. Most of our practice members who for come for regular spinal check-ups with their children report less illness and better overall health. When combined with good whole food nutrition, exercise and a positive mental attitude, regular chiropractic care is one of the main ingredients to a recipe for overall well-being at any age! Chiropractic is about restoring the integrity of the nerve system, which controls every organ and cell in our bodies. Isn’t it time your family was checked???
