Chiropractic care for my child? Why?
The spine is the lifeline of the body. Inside the spinal column is the spinal cord containing billions of nerve fibers traveling to every part of your child’s body, sending messages and energy from the brain regulating your child’s health. If there is any nerve blockage along the spinal cord then a state of dis-ease will develop. Dis-ease causes a generalized weakening of your child’s body which can manifest in your child as a lowered resistance to illnesses such as colic or ear infection as well as hyperactivity or other behavioral disorders.
Does my youngster need chiropractic???
Regular nervous system check-ups for your child can be some of the most important check-ups in their life. Many people are surprised when they hear that children can be helped with chiropractic care. The truth is, chiropractic care is vital for a child’s proper development, around the world and here in Longmont.
Just as adults need a properly functioning nervous system, free of interference, so do children. You may not be aware of this but traumatic birth syndrome is actually very common and often unrecognized as the cause of numerous health problems. It’s also interesting to note that only chiropractors are properly trained to detect and correct the subtle, yet very significant misalignments and nervous system imbalances that can occur either in the womb or during a “normal” hospital birth. “Normal” obstetrical procedures involve pulling the newborn baby out by the head.
Your child was meant to be gently pushed and guided out, not pulled! The resulting spinal subluxations can be the cause of newborn health complaints like colic, ear infections, and allergic reactions, even poor appetite and unexplained crying.
