Why Kids Need Chiropractic Care
People ask me all of the time if they can bring their kids in for adjustments. I tell them not only can they, but they absolutely should be bringing their kids in to have their spines checked. Kids need Chiropractic Care as much or more than anyone. If your kids are at all like mine they fall off of, jump off of, or run into everything imaginable.
In newborns and toddlers spinal malfunctions caused by falls and crashes while learning to walk can often be helped with chiropractic care. Even the birth process itself can be a source of spinal problems resulting in many of the newborn health complaints that can be frustrating to parents. Colic, inconsolable crying, poor appetite, and even skin rashes can often be helped with Chiropractic when caused by interference in the nervous system.
As kids get older, there can be a whole new set of problems that threaten to interfere with a child’s school work and social life. Activities such as sports and repetitive motions like band or piano lessons. Parents are often at a loss of what to for a child who suffers from ADHD, allergies, asthma, ear infections, or ear infections to name a few conditions.
Many of the conditions seen in adulthood begin in childhood. By correcting spinal misalignments called subluxations these problems could be caught early and hopefully avoided altogether.
I adjust my own children as early as day one and have success with them as infants with conditions including seizures, constipation, diaper rashes, bedwetting and just plain old grumpiness.
