CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR CHILDREN

Children & Chiropractic Care

Children are prone to subluxations (slight misalignments of the vertebrae) from everyday playing. As children play, IE: Climbing, jumping, running and falling, these actions affect their spine, joints, muscles and inner workings of their nervous system. Small bumps create small spinal misalignments or subluxations that over time create interference within the nervous system. If not treated, the body considers this normal and the muscles, joint and ligaments conform to the new way of walking, bending and other movements.

 

A Child’s First Subluxation

A child’s first subluxation occurs during birthing process. Their bodies go through a tremendous amount of pressure and because their bones are extremely soft and flexible, we assume they recover quickly. Colic, a tilting head or misshapen head can be signs of infant subluxations.

 

Why it’s Important to Start Chiropractic Care at Infancy

Infants do a lot of growing in the first year of life. They learn to hold their head up, roll over, sit, crawl and walk. It is normal for babies to fall when they are learning to walk, but each of these falls creates a new subluxation. By the time the baby is a toddler; these subluxations have become their normal. Subluxations can affect the nervous system and lead to a less effective immune systems increasing the occurrence of chronic colds, ear infections, bedwetting and poor sleep.

 

Do Child Chiropractic Adjustments Hurt?

Pediatric chiropractors only use light finger touches to align subluxations with infants. Starting at age 2, the adjustments move from finger touches to finger tapping. As the child grows, the adjustments grow with them. Child Chiropractic care will not keep your child from getting the common cold, flu or strep throat, but it will allow the body to work more efficiently and heal quicker.
