Kids grow up so fast and as parents, we want to protect them from the first moment we hold them in our arms. To help our children reach their mental and physical potential, children need to experience the world through exploration, play and sports often leading to bumps, bruises and a few falls. These minor injuries may cause spinal misalignments and ultimately result in stresses on the nervous system.
A healthy nervous system free of strain and stress is essential as the nervous system controls and coordinates every function of the body, including healing and repair. So, you might be wondering ‘why should my child have chiropractic care?’ To protect our children, promote optimal health and to prevent illness, visiting a chiropractor can help.
How can a chiropractor help my child?
When children receive chiropractic adjustments, “the healing power of the body is unleashed: the immune system functions more efficiently, resistance to disease increases, and your child’s body functions more efficiently. Your child can respond to internal and external environmental stresses such as germs, changes in temperature, humidity, toxins, pollen and all the other stresses he/she comes in contact with more efficiently”.*
What are the most common reasons to seek chiropractor care?
- To reduce frequency of colds, ear infections and illnesses
- To help with asthma and/or allergies
- To promote digestion, alleviate constipation and treat colic
- To improve sleep and prevent bed wetting
- To alleviate growing pains
- To maximize brain development and learning potential
- To improve concentration and emotional well-being
Chiropractic care for children improves all system functions in the body; “circulatory, respiratory, digestive, hormonal, eliminative and immune system. Chiropractic adjustments restore nerve system function allowing the body the ability to express a greater state of health and well-being.”**.
