Often times, parents are surprised and unsure about the idea of having their children under chiropractic care. Most children don’t have low back pain and headaches, so why do they need to be seen by a pediatric chiropractor? Well, more and more parents are discovering the wonderful benefits of pediatric chiropractic care and the help they receive from such things as ADHD, constipation and ear infections.
Why Adjust? Well, whenever joints in the spine are misaligned or subluxated, they can cause pressure or interference to the nerves that exit the spinal column. This can lead to a poor signal or miscommunication from the body to the brain and vice versa. Everything is controlled via the nervous system and it all starts in the brain. If these signals are not working properly, it can lead to dysfunction in many different areas such as digestion, blood pressure, respiration, and even coordination and balance.
These subluxations are common in children and it all begins in utero. Birth trauma, falls, sports and rough play can also play a large role in the development of subluxations. This is why it is so vitally important to have your child’s nervous system evaluated for these subluxations by their family chiropractor.
