Chiropractic care isn’t just for adults; it’s for children too! Spinal problems can start as early as birth, so bringing your child to the chiropractor sets them up for a healthier and more comfortable future.

 

 

 

4 Reasons Why Children Should See a Chiropractor

How Will Seeing A Chiropractor Benefit Your Child?

The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) conducted a study to prove the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic care for children. They concluded that chiropractic care was indeed safe and effective for children. The study found specific benefits. Parents reported 3 main improvements in their children who had chiropractic adjustments:

#1: Their children slept better.

#2: Children showed improvements in behavior and attitude.

#3: Immune system functions were improved.

 

Chiropractors Treat Nerve Stress

Because children are so active, they are also very susceptible to spine trauma. Spinal misalignment or distortion can interfere with the proper function of the nervous system. The nervous system is the control center for many functions of the body and any interference can cause problems. Chiropractors reduce nerve stress by corrective procedures called spinal adjustments.

 

When Should Your Child Start Seeing a Chiropractor?

It’s never too soon. The birthing process often puts stress on the spine. Studies have shown that infants experiencing colic, ear infections and asthma might have a spinal dislocation. Chiropractic care can reduce these symptoms. The longer spinal issues go untreated, the more lasting effects they can have on your child’s health.

 

Does It Hurt?

Chiropractors treating young patients are very gentle. On the very young, adjustments are as light as a finger touch.
