As a parent, there is oftentimes so much that is beyond our control when raising children. We try to protect our kids from illness, shield them from injury and do anything in our power to promote optimal learning and development. There are many tools at our fingertips to encourage strong, healthy growth such as a healthy diet, plenty of sleep and exercise, but did you know chiropractic care was one of them?
Chiropractors can help your children reach their potential and promote good health through regular adjustments. Children start experiencing subtle spinal misalignments (subluxations) from birth and they continue to occur during playtime or participating in day to day activities or sports. These subluxations have an impact on the nervous system affecting overall bodily function. When the nervous system is comprimised, symptoms are not always obvious and instead manifest in other ways like digestion issues, sleep problems, lower immunity and even in children’s behaviour.
“The expertise of the chiropractor is in checking the child’s spine for mis-alignments that impair nerve system function therefore affecting overall body function. The bones of the spine, the vertebrae, house and protect the spinal cord. The spinal cord is an extension of the brain and carries information from the brain to the body parts and back to the brain again. Subluxations interfere with the nerves’ ability to transmit this vital information.”*
Based on our clinical experience, once a child starts receiving chiropractic adjustments, they may experience the following benefits:
- Less frequent colds or flu and fewer ear infections
- Improved sleep
- Less severe asthma
- Better digestion and reduced colic symptoms in babies
- Improved ability to learn and focus
- Improved behaviour
