Why Should Children Be Under Chiropractic Care?
More and more parents are seeking chiropractic care for their children. Misalignments in the spine can happen as early as birth and can lead to health consequences in the future. A German study found that over 85% of babies had some type of cervical trauma during the birth process. During the birth process the head is pulled and twisted to help the baby out. This has a large impact on the vulnerable upper cervical region of the spine. Children are often prone to spinal misalignments during the crawling and walking phases, riding a bike, falls, sports and more. Pediatric chiropractic is gentle and precise. Misalignments in the upper cervical region can compromise the nervous system and result in secondary symptoms such as constipation, colic, torticollis, lack of appetite, breastfeeding problems, earaches, irritability, compromised immune system, allergies, asthma and more. Chiropractors do not treat these conditions but re-align the spine so that the child's nervous system functions properly and can heal as it is intended. Parents are discovering that children under chiropractic care are healthier and have less illness than children that are not. Have your child's nervous system checked today!
