Is Chiropractic safe for children? YES!! There have been several large-scale research studies verifying the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic care for kids. The amount of force used to adjust an infant is comparable to the amount of force you use to test a ripe tomato at the grocery store. Thus, it is extremely gentle!
The nervous system, consisting of the brain, spinal cord and all the nerves of the body, controls and regulates the entire body. Often, we find nerve disturbances associated with many types of common childhood health complaints, many of which are described in this website.
Infertility – Even before birth, restoring nervous system control of reproductive organs has blessed many chiropractic patients with the child they thought was impossible.
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 produce a child’s first nerve compromise. Lacking the ability to communicate, your baby cries. And cries. Learn more about colic.
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. Learn more about ear infections.
Development – Although every child is different there does come a time when you think, “Bobby should really be crawling by now.” Chiropractic care can help to align the nervous system with their development and allows to body to send clear communication signals to the brain. This helps them stay on track and hit those developmental milestones in no time!
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. Learn more about bedwetting.
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. Learn more about ADD/ADHD.
Asthma – By reducing neurological compromise to the bronchial tubes, lungs and diaphragm with chiropractic care, attacks can often be reduced or eliminated. Learn more about asthma.
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.
