Chiropractic care for kids offers a solid foundation for wellness. Not only is chiropractic care safe for children it’s proven to improve sleep, behavior, and attitude, and boost the immune system.
As with adults, your child’s nervous system, which consists of the brain, spinal cord and nerves controls everything in the body including growth and development. Misalignment in the spine can prevent clear communication between the brain and the rest of the body via the nervous system. As a result, misalignment can cause pressure on the nervous system and lead to a decrease in function.
Children can experience misalignment from birth. Your child’s body will produce more neural pathways in the first five years than at any other time in his or her life. If your child suffers from misalignment chiropractic care will ensure your child’s body functions correctly at this crucial time.
Children grow they play sports, take tumbles and fall into bad habits. These incidents accumulate over time and can, if untreated, result in discomfort and other related health issues by the time they reach puberty.
Let’s take a further look at the benefits of chiropractic care in children. Tension and discomfort can make falling asleep difficult for children. Any parent or caregiver knows that an overtired child can lead to behavioral problems. A better night’s sleep can lead to improved behavior. As your child grows so do its systems including the immune system. Any help we can give our children in boosting their immunity has to be a good thing. In addition, chiropractic care has been known to effectively treat ear infections, digestive issues, allergies, asthma, headaches, and sports injuries.
