Why Are So Many Parents Taking Their Children to A Chiropractor?
We are constantly getting asked, “Why are so many parents taking their children to see a certified pediatric chiropractor?”
I tell them the answer is simple: Children have spines and nervous systems just like adults. We want to make sure they are getting taken care of even in the early years of development.
Here are the top 5 reasons that you should consider Chiropractic Care for your children:
To promote growth and development, while limiting health challenges such as nursing issues or reflux.
Allows a child’s nervous system and spine to grow optimally and without interference.
Reduces the chance for ear infections, bed wetting, asthma, & allergies.
To improve a child’s immune system and digestive health, while limiting colic and constipation.
To encourage nerve and brain development (Neural Plasticity).
Promotes proper perception and awareness which prevents labels like; ADHD, Sensory Integration Disorder, & other neurodevelopment disorders.
Being proactive about your child’s overall health and wellbeing will support them through colds and infections, allowing them to meet their optimal potential.
The Nervous System Controls Everything
How Do You Want Your Tree to Grow?
The integrity and function of the nervous system is very important for proper growth and development, especially for children. Because it is the spine that protects the nervous system, it is crucial that the spine be moving properly and in proper alignment. If the spine is misaligned, it can cause a “blown fuse”, which leads to further health issues. Think about a tree that is growing in your backyard.. We want that tree to grow nice and straight so it can be as strong and as healthy as possible. If we help the tree to grow correctly from early on, it is so much easier than trying to correct a tree that has grown “crooked” for 20 years. The idea here is that being proactive with children and allowing their spine & nervous system to grow properly early on, helps us prevent any issues, and the need to correct these issues later on in life.
