Chiropractic Care for Children

Regular chiropractic visits keep your kids on the right track by ensuring healthy spinal development & optimal nervous system function.

Your child’s spine protects the body’s most powerful system, the nervous system. The brain talks to the body through the nerves. Vertebrae protect the nerves to allow for proper function of all organs. Since we only get one spine in our lifetime, it is best to take care of it right from the start! The bones in your child’s back are even more important than their teeth; and as all good parents, we want our kids to have regular teeth checkups and cleanings.

Routine wellness chiropractic visits should be an essential component to maintaining your child’s optimal health.

Chiropractic is the science and practice of removing subluxations. Subluxations are misalignments in the spine that cause stress on our nervous system. They are caused by physical, chemical and emotional stress in our daily lives. Some common stress components your child(ren) may face on a regular basis might be some of the following:

  • Physical Stress – childhood sports injuries, heavy or one strapped back packs, play areas, trying new things, taking falls, walkers  play areas and other toys and equipment can place excessive weight and stress on an infant, toddler or youth’s spine before it is ready.
  • Chemical Stress – Formulas and rice cereals can wreak havoc on chemical balances in their systems, fast food and poor eating habits are also a big chemical stress inducer, and lastly this generation of children is the most medicated and vaccinated in human history and these also play a big role in your child’s chemical balance.
  • Emotional Stress – Growing up isn’t easy, be sensitive to emotional stress in your child’s life, make sure they can talk to you about whatever is bothering them. This stress also effects the nervous system.

In addition to chiropractic being a critical component to help support optimal health maintenance for children, many parents also have found chiropractic beneficial for treating colic, ear infections, headaches, irritability and other common health conditions facing children.
