Even in our highly advanced world, with all our technology, there are still many things we do no understand about the human body. This statement is even more true for children and infants. Chiropractic’s drugless and preventive approach to good health makes it perfectly appropriate for infants, children, and teenagers. Chiropractic is licensed in all 50 states of the U.S. for the care of children of all ages.
The birthing process may be one of the most traumatic events of our lives because it can cause stress to a still-developing spine. This can result in irritation to the child’s nervous system which can cause health problems, that we as parents do not normally associate with spinal damage, such as bed-wetting, hyperactivity, asthma, allergies, and much more. But don’t worry these and other childhood problems may be detected and corrected by your Doctor of Chiropractic, thereby helping your child develop a healthier, more normal body.
Chiropractic is one of the safest forms of children’s health care because it is minimally invasive and drugless. An experienced chiropractor will not use the same techniques on a baby or a child. A baby’s spine is very supple during the first few months of life, so the doctor of chiropractic applies only a slight pressure to make an adjustment. The chiropractic adjusting techniques are modified to fit a child’s size, weight, and unique spinal problem. So please give your child every opportunity to develop into a normal healthy adult because delay or neglect can be dangerous, or even fatal!
