Chiropractic Care For Children

 

“A well trained nervous system is the greatest friend a mind can have”

-Halleck, 1898

 

Children need chiropractic care too!

 

More and more parents are seeking out alternative health care choices for keeping their children healthy and one of those choices is chiropractic. New studies are showing that a lot of the spinal and health problems that occur in older age can be the result of injuries to the spine and nervous from as early as birth.

Children experience many physical stressors throughout infancy and childhood. In addition, as children play and grow they experience a lot of bruises, falls and injuries. A healthy child’s body is resilient to the stresses of daily life, but just as any engine requires regular maintenance to ensure it continues to run optimally, your child’s body also requires maintenance to stay in peek condition.

 

Prolonged car rides, poor posture (at school and home), heavy backpacks and small accidents while learning to ride a bike, ski or skate are just a few of the stresses that can cause a misalignment in your child’s spine. This makes it important for parents to have their child’s spine checked on a regular basis throughout the growing years to ensure proper development of the spine and nervous system.

 

Some children require more frequent visits to the chiropractor and this is based on the child’s activities levels, postural habits, and injuries. The higher the activity levels, poorer posture and an increase in injuries will require your child to have his/her spine checked more frequently.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Why should my child see a chiropractor?

 

Children experience physical stress on their body every day. Prolonged car rides, poor posture (at school and home), heavy backpacks and small accidents while learning to ride a bike, ski or skate are just a few of the stresses that can cause subluxations (misalignments) in your child’s spine. This makes it important for parents to have their child’s spine checked on a regular basis throughout the growing years to ensure proper development of the spine and nervous system. More and more studies are showing that a lot of the spinal problems that occur in older age is due to stress and traumas placed on the spine from as early as birth.

 

How often should children get checked?

 

Every child is different when it comes to needing chiropractic check-ups. The more active your child is, the more likely they may need to have their spine checked. It is also important to note that the postural habits your child has may also be a good indicator on how often you bring your child to the chiropractor. More active children who experience a lot of bruises, falls and injuries may need to come and get checked more frequently.

 

How do children get subluxations (misalignments)?

 

Children experience physical stress on their body every day.

My child isn’t experiencing any pain, why would they need to see a chiropractor?

 

Only about 10% of your nerve fibers carry pain fibers, so pain is never a good indicator on determining the health of your spine. Having your child’s spine checked on a regular schedule can help promote proper spine development, encourage musculature balance, allow the nervous system ( the control mechanism of every cell, organ and blood vessel ) to function at it’s best and decrease the chances of having problems down the road in older age. More research studies are showing the a lot of the spinal and health problems in older age come be a result of an injury from earlier on in childhood.
