Chiropractic does not add anything to nor does it take anything from the body in order to achieve results. By reducing the damaging effects of vertebral subluxation and nerve interference, chiropractic adjustments allow the body to recover naturally without the unnecessary side effects caused by medications.
If conservative medical management and chiropractic adjustments are both found to be equally effective, ask yourself which option causes less detrimental side effects along the way, and choose accordingly.
What Health Concerns Do Your Kids Have?
“Mothers and their babies are liable to be injured at childbirth. Many have their vertebrae displaced at this critical period, causing acute and chronic diseases. If the adjustor is a chiropractor, he can adjust such, thereby preventing dis-ease.”
D.D. Palmer, 1910
Chiropractic Care is needed for children now more than ever:
- Pediatric back pain is far more prevalent than it was a decade ago.
- Backpacks are too heavy for their size in 30-54% of students.
- Headaches in children during any given school year may be as high as 80-90%.
- Bedwetting occurs in 20% of all 4-5 year-olds and persists in 7% of 8 year-olds.
- Asthma occurs in 7% of American children, appearing in the first year of life in 30% of these infants and 50% before age 2.
- Ear Infections account for 35% of all pediatrician visits. Most common medical treatments have been shown to be inadequate.
Why Are Kids Getting So Sick?
All children undergo two primary insults to their musculoskeletal system very early in life, the first is the birth process either coming through the birth canal or via cesarean section; the second is going from crawling to walking. The pressure placed upon the brain stem in during birth and on the rest of the spine in the transition from crawling to walking may have huge detrimental effects at a neurological level.
Nerve dysfunction associated with birth trauma may result in irritability, digestive disorders, respiratory distress, difficulty with feeding and attachment, sleeping problems, and neurological defects.
Subluxations And Trauma
The pressure on the nervous system is known as a vertebral subluxation complex. Vertebral subluxations are the result of neurological trauma and have negative effects on almost every tissue in the body. They cause an inflammatory response that can interfere with normal physiological, biochemical, and function of otherwise healthy tissue. This strain on the nervous system can be a factor in the development of many common childhood conditions.
