Chiropractic is a natural form of health care beneficial for all ages. Yes, that’s right, ALL ages! An evaluation can be performed just minutes after a baby is born, and gentle, non-force adjustments can be delivered shorty after that. These adjustments can play a critical role in correcting misalignments the baby endured during the birthing process. Chiropractic care is often looked at as a solution for acute and chronic problems, but it is also a wonderful tool when it comes to preventative care.
Kids live in a state of constant growth and curiosity. They want to see what everything tastes like and they love exploring their surroundings. As fun as it is to watch them learn and grow, sometimes bumps and tumbles are part of that growing process. From day one, children experience a variety of micro-traumas and falls as they learn to crawl, walk, and run. As they continue to grow and enter school, backpacks, computers, those terrible childhood desks, or even recess activities can all lead to misalignments in the body. Chiropractic gives kids the upper hand to living a healthy life by reducing the physical stressors they endure on a daily basis. Simply put, proper alignment of the spine leads to better quality of health.
So, in a world where there is so much focus on what kids are eating – is this organic? does this have added sugar? etc. – we have to ask ourselves, are we giving the same amount of attention to their nervous systems, too?
