Can chiropractic care benefit your child?Many spinal problems seen in a someone as early as birth. Birthing can cause stress on an infant’s spine and developing nerve system. Colic, breathing problems, nursing difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions and chronic infections can often be traced to nerve system stress. These common newborn complaints are often caused by spinal and cranial misalignment.
Since significant spinal trauma can occur at birth, many parents have their newborns checked right away. As an infant grows, and learns to walk, crawl, and sit, this can affect spinal alignment. Chiropractic care can keep your child growing on the right track.Did you know chiropractic pediatric care is not only for newborns?
Getting your child regular check ups with the chiropractor can prevent or help conditions such as ear infections, asthma, allergies, and headaches (to name a few). Regular check ups or adjustments can help prevent health complaints later see in adults.
It is important to understand that the Doctor of Chiropractic does not treat conditions or diseases. The expertise of the chiropractor is in checking the child’s spine for mis-alignments that impair nerve system function therefore affecting overall body function.
