Chiropractic and Children
Upon examination, we often find nerve disturbances associated with many types of common childhood health complaints. Our primary aim is to locate and reduce the underlying nervous system dysfunction.
Traumatic Birth Have your newborn checked shortly after birth to detect the effects of in-utero constraint, C-section, vacuum extraction or other aspects of a stressful birth.
Colic Birth trauma, even from so-called “natural” birthing experiences can often product a child’s first nerve compromise. Lacking the ability to communicate, your baby cries. And cries.
Ear infections Biomechanical restrictions in the upper spine can compromise the nervous system and immune system, making your child’s ears a breeding ground for viral infection.
Bedwetting Nervous system compromise in the lower back can block nerve messages responsible for bladder control. Many children regain their confidence and self-esteem with chiropractic care.
Asthma By reducing neurological compromise to the bronchial tubes, lungs, and diaphragm attacks can often be reduced or eliminated with chiropractic care.
ADHD Many parents investigate conservative chiropractic care before exposing their children to psychotropic drugs. Reducing tension to the nervous system has produced excellent results for many.
Growing Pains Pain of any type is a warning that something isn’t right. While considered a “phase they’re going through,” it’s usually a sign that biomechanical stress to the nervous system is present.
Scoliosis Instead of crude bracing or the all too common “wait and watch” approach, chiropractic care has helped countless children with this common disfigurement.
Wellness An obvious symptom isn’t required! Enjoy the peace of mind of having your infant or child checked to uncover structural or neurological problems before they become serious.
Many of the hard-to-correct problems we see in adults are long-standing problems that began, and remained undetected in childhood.
