Pediatric Chiropractic Care: Nurturing Your Child's Well-Being
Chiropractic care plays a vital role in fostering your child's overall wellness. In the United States, over 17 percent of chiropractic patients are under the age of 18, with nearly 8 percent being five years or younger, according to the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners. While it might appear that children have little need for chiropractic care at such a young age, initiating preventative care early in life can pave the way for a lifetime of health and vitality.
The Significance of Your Child's Nervous System
The nervous system, encompassing the brain, spinal cord, and nerves, governs every facet of the body, including growth and development. Subluxations, or misalignments, within the spine can disrupt the vital communication between the brain and the body. These subluxations induce stress on the nervous system, potentially leading to a diminished function in the affected area.
Infants, children, and adults can all experience spinal subluxations. Birth trauma, minor or major traumas, and developmental stress can all cause subluxations in infants and children. During the initial five years of life, the body generates more neural pathways than at any other time. It is crucial to optimize this production through pediatric chiropractic care, as these early years are pivotal for each child's potential.
Even if your child currently enjoys excellent health, minor traumas from everyday bumps, falls, and tumbles can accumulate over time and result in discomfort, pain, or health issues during their adolescent and adult years.
The Chiropractic Adjustment
Chiropractic adjustments are safe for patients of all ages, including newborns. Following a thorough assessment of your child's spine, the chiropractor will administer a gentle adjustment using either their hands or a specialized tool. This adjustment, coupled with chiropractic therapies, aims to alleviate subluxations.
Over time, chiropractic practitioners have received valuable feedback from parents and young patients, highlighting significant and unexpected improvements in various aspects of their lives, including:
Behavior and attitude
Immune system functionality
Additionally, patients have reported improvements in conditions such as ADD/ADHD, colic, torticollis, ear infections, bed-wetting, digestive issues, allergies, asthma, seizures, and more.
