Why You Should Consider Chiropractic Care for Your Child
Are you looking for ways to help your kids grow up healthy and strong?
Do your kids have chronic ear infections, get sick often, or seem to struggle with milestones?
Kids today are sicker than ever. One-third of kids are on at least one prescription medication, and the number of children with chronic illness continues to rises.
Although this is considered normal these days, it should not be this common.
Here are a few concerns we hear from parents:
What does an adjustment look/feel like for a kid?
This can depend on the age. For a newborn, we use roughly the amount of pressure you use to check the ripeness of an avocado. For bigger kids, adjustments are gentler than for adults, but not as gentle as they are for newborns.
Why should my child get an adjustment?
Chiropractic care isn’t just about pain – It’s about function!
Chiropractic adjustments are about restoring the spine to a condition that allows the nerves to function as they should. When those nerves work more efficiently, the body can communicate better to improve function, performance, and the ability to respond to stress. This helps your kids get better from illnesses, can help prevent issues, and help them grow into healthy adults.
How do adjustments help my child?
Some of the most common issues that a chiropractor can help kids with are ear infections, sensory processing disorders, constipation, and walking and/or crawling problems. Chiropractic works great as a reaction to health concerns and problems, but works even better as a preventative measure. Staying ahead of problems, helping the spine and nervous system function properly, and keeping dysfunction away, help to prevent issues from arising.
“They’ll grow out of it.”
This is the biggest misnomer we hear with regard to childhood health concerns.
Kids don’t outgrow problems, they grow into them. We work to help kids correct neurological problems so that we solve the root cause of health issues now and not “grow into” something else later.
