Being a parent isn’t always easy. We’re always striving to give our family what they need, but aren’t always aware of what our options are, or what is best. While there is no “one size fits all” approach, we are working to raise awareness about the safety and efficacy of Chiropractic, especially in children. It is better to grow healthy kids then to fix broken adults.
The top 10 reasons that parents bring their kids to see a Chiropractor are:
1: To encourage good neural plasticity (brain and nerve development)
2: To support “first-class” nerve communication throughout the body – promoting health and wellbeing
3: To help strengthen their child’s immunity – encouraging fewer colds, ear-aches and general wellness
4: To help resolve breastfeeding issues and colic
5: To reduce the detrimental impact our modern world has on our children’s health (physical, chemical, and emotional stress!)
6: Encourages children to thrive by supporting digestive strength
7: To help improve their child’s ability to learn and concentrate
8: To promote body balance – helping to resolve poor posture, asthma, allergies and bed wetting
9: To help kids stay fun and light hearted
10: To help kids stay in tip-top shape
Every time your child receives a chiropractic adjustment it positively affects their brain and nervous system. This positive effect on the brain promotes health and a state of ease within the nervous system and body. When the body is at ease it is more suited to adapt to potential stresses and illness, like an ear infection, cold or situation where they may be over stimulated.”
A chiropractic adjustment restores appropriate sensory, motor and neurological input at the receptors of joints. Therefore, with either a highly stimulated individual or one who is less sensitive , one purpose of an adjustment is to turn up or down the volume on their nervous system.
Chiropractors not only see children when things go wrong, but also when everything is just right.
