Parents will do just about anything to protect their child’s health. They serve nutritionally balanced meals, encourage daily play, and insist on regular dental and eye examinations. Yet many parents overlook the most important part of their child’s health care: regular spinal checkups! A healthy nervous system is the best way to secure optimal health for your child, from infancy to adulthood.
Chiropractic can help with many childhood ailments including, but not limited to:
Starting with the birthing process itself, our bodies are subjected to many spinal traumas. Even the most natural of births can cause stress and strain to the tiny developing spine. This initial damage can be compounded when the child is developing proper head support and learning to sit up, crawl, stand and walk. During this time of rapid spinal growth, these bumps and falls can be the cause of many unexplained health problems.
Many parents feel that their children are too small to get adjustments, or that it might hurt them. When you picture a full-grown adult getting adjusted, this is very understandable! That is why the techniques and tools used on small children are very different than what we do for adults. Many times no movement is necessary, a gentle nudge is all that is needed for a tiny spine to get in line. Dr. Adrienne has been specifically trained to work with children – from tiny newborns to rambunctious adolescents – so parents can feel confident (and proud!) in their decision to have their children adjusted by a chiropractor.
