Chiropractic For Children

Chiropractic care is important for people of all ages. Many spinal problems seen in adults begin as early as birth. While birthing, the birthing methods can stress an infant’s spine and the developing nerve system. The resulting irritation to the nerve system caused by spinal and cranial misalignment can be the cause of many newborn health complaints. Colic, breathing problems, nursing difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions and chronic infections can often be traced to nerve system stress. With significant spinal trauma occurring at birth, it’s common for parents to have their newborns checked shortly after birth.

Some studies in children’s chiropractic safety have shown that when children are being treated it can improve sleep, improve behavior and attitude, as well as improve the immune system function. Your child’s nervous system is developing at a rapid rate. The nervous system includes the brain, the spinal cord, and all the millions of nerves that serve every inch of your body and control most of its functions. Just like the bones need proper joint motion for optimal development, so do the nerves in order to develop optimal communication. Chiropractic adjustments facilitate optimal nervous system function, which contributes to your child’s overall health in amazing ways!
