Chiropractic Care for Children
Is it safe for my children to get adjusted by a Chiropractor?
YES!! The "childhood years" are the most important years for everyone. As your body takes shape it is important to have proper spinal alignment
From birth through adolescence a child's body goes through rapid growth and constant change. Children get pushed, pulled, thrown, and tossed about every which way we can imagine ... so it is not surprising many children have spinal misalignment
Many children with spinal misalignment are not aware a problem exists due to lack of pain. For example, nerve interference due to spinal misalignment can cause communication between a child's brain and bladder to breakdown, and cause bed wetting and other bladder control problems.
Chiropractic care can remove the interference that causes bladder control.
Kids actually do much better then adults from their chiropractic adjustments. Their subluxatons haven't had time to worsen and they also heal very fast! Their adjustments last longer and they respond quicker.
It can be difficult to know if your child has spinal subluxations, so it is not always easy to let someone other then a trained chiropractor determine if there are any problems. In fact, regular scheduled maintenance visits are probably as good for your child as they for you!
These are some common indicators that your child may have spinal problems:
•Head consistently being tilted to one side •Restricted head or neck movement to one side •Disturbed sleeping patterns -child sleeps for only an hour or two at a time •Feeding difficulties in a very young infant •Difficulty breast feeding the infant on one particular side
Some common examples of what chiropractic adjustments can handle:
•colic •bed-wetting •sleeping problems •asthma •eczema •ear infections •sore throats •headaches •growing pains
Subluxations can cause a whole bunch of things other than just back pain or neck pain. Even giving birth can be so traumatic on the spine of the infant thus creating subluxations. Can you imagine a child waiting until they were say 35 or even 55 years old before they saw their first chiropractor? That damage would be sitting there for 55 years.
Please bring you kids in with you on your next appointment; we look forward to caring for your entire family!
