What You Might Not Realize about Kids and Chiropractic
The most effective time in a person's life to receive chiropractic adjustments is during infancy and childhood.
(from the internet) . Chiropractic adjustments are focused on clearing interference from your nervous system allowing for clear communication from the brain to the rest of your body. The nerve system is the master control system of the body and it controls and coordinates every other system, organ and cell in the body. Having your nerve system free of any interference allows the body to develop and function optimally.
What causes Nerve System Interference? One of the most stressful experiences all children go through is the birth process. Twisting, torquing, compression and tractioning to a child's fragile spine from the use of forceps, vacuum, the doctor's hands, and even cesarean delivery cause misalignments and distortion in the spine and nerve system. Physical, chemical and emotional stress can also lead to nerve interference. Something as seemingly insignificant as a minor fall can create stored trauma to the spine that can lead to problems in the future.
How do I know if there is interference in my child's nervous system? The optimal way to determine if your child has nerve interference is to make an appointment with a chiropractor that specializes in pediatrics. They can use their hands or computer technology to determine if the child has any stored stress in their cranium, spine and nervous system.
Indicators of nerve interference you can watch for are: difficulty sleeping, trouble breastfeeding, constipation, colic, failure to thrive, difficulty crawling and walking, asthma, allergies, attention deficit, visual and auditory disturbances, prolonged or repetitive illnesses, and hormone imbalances.
Is chiropractic for children safe? YES! Chiropractors who specialize in adjusting children use very gentle and non-invasive techniques. Their adjustments are tailored to your child's delicate and pliable spine and the amount of force used is very light.
When should my child see a chiropractor? The optimal time for a child's first chiropractic check up is right after birth. The earlier nerve system interference is found and cleared, the better chance your child has to adapt to its new environment and grow and develop optimally from day one. If your child has never had a chiropractic check up, it is never too late to start. Find a chiropractor in your area who specializes in adjusting children and book your appointment today!
