Why do millions of parents bring their children to a chiropractor each year? Is it only for when your child is hurting or for highly dramatic health conditions? Not at all!
More parents are bringing their children to chiropractors for day-to-day health conditions like colds, sore throats, ear infections, colic, asthma, bed wetting, falls, stomach aches, and the other thousand things that children go through as they grow up.
It’s important to understand that chiropractic is not a treatment for disease. Its purpose is to reduce nerve system stress, a serious and often painless condition most children (and adults) experience quite frequently.
Nerve system stress interferes with the proper functioning of the nervous system which can weaken internal organs, reduce healing potential and set the stage for sickness.
Many spinal problems seen in adults began as early as birth. Even ‘natural’ birthing methods can stress an infant’s spine and developing nerve system.
The resulting irritation to the nerve system caused by spinal misalignment can be the cause of many newborn health complaints.
When a chiropractor frees the nervous system from spinal stress, the healing power of the body is unleashed, immune system works more efficiently, and your child’s body functions more effectively.
Chiropractic adjustments are modified to fir a child’s size, weight, and unique spinal condition. They are both gentle and specific to the child’s developing structure. In fact, the pressure a chiropractor uses to adjust an infant is a similar pressure to that when you test a tomato to see if it’s ripe.
