People are often surprised when they hear that chiropractic can help children. It’s something most people have never considered. However, a growing percentage of the population is using chiropractic care from birth and throughout life for both health challenges and prevention. After all, children are miniature versions of adults with a spine and nervous system.
Since the nervous system controls and coordinates everything in the body, including development and healing, wouldn’t it make sense to ensure that a child’s nervous system is working properly? Of course! When the spine is misaligned it can interfere with the nervous system, disrupting the amazing power that made the body, heals the body, and coordinates all functions in the body. Chiropractic care is a powerful way for parents to help their child(ren) heal naturally.
Evidence from chiropractic offices throughout the world shows that children can benefit from chiropractic care, even if they already have a health challenge such as ear infections, colic, asthma, acid reflux, ADHD, developmental delay, migraines, torticollis, and other problems. If the spine is putting pressure on the nervous system and interfering with the body’s normal functioning, then chiropractic can help.
No health challenges? No problem! Chiropractic is a great way to keep the body functioning at a high level to prevent problems from developing. Dr. Marjorie and Dr. Bryan’s children, Abilee and Ames, have been under chiropractic care since they were born! Chiropractic is helping them grow up healthy and strong!
