As a parent, the health and well-being of your child are of primary importance. With that said, many are deeply concerned about the principle methods of our health care system—treating symptoms using dangerous drugs and/or surgery. These methods are harsh on every person’s natural functions, but perhaps even more so on a young child.
Are you seeking an alternative?
Fortunately, there is a growing body of research that shows that chiropractic adjustments can have a profound positive impact on a child’s health and well-being. Exciting new discoveries in the health field have determined that chiropractic care can help with some of the most common childhood problems including:
— Ear Infections
— Immune System Function
The position of the spinal bones (vertebrae) can have a significant effect on the function of the nervous system. Even small misalignments of these bones can irritate the nerves that control vital bodily functions. Chiropractic care can safely correct these misalignments in the spine by applying gentle pressure at critical points along the backbone.
Misalignments come from a number of causes. The birth process itself can be very stressful on an infant’s spine (it certainly is on the mother’s spine!). Falls, sports injuries, and heavy backpacks can all lead to misalignment.
Chiropractic care is no substitute for your family health care provider. However, regular trips to the chiropractor may decrease your trips to the pediatrician.
If a child’s spine is free from nerve interference, that child will have a better chance of being healthy!
From one parent to another…
I brought Kaden to his first appointment with the chiropractor because of his severe sinus infection. The doctors kept telling me it was viral and there was nothing they could do for him. Kaden is 18 months old so he’s too young for antibiotics. I tried vaporizers, saline nose spray, and the snot sucker but nothing provided long-term relief. I had heard that back adjustments can help relieve sinus pressure and headaches in adults. So why not a child?
Kaden actually loves the chiropractor! He watched the doctor adjust my neck first, which made him super excited to get on the table. He stayed still while the doctor applied a light pressure to his back. He giggled! The whole process took less than 2 minutes.
Kaden has been adjusted 3 times now and I have to say, his nose clears up a bit more after each visit. Hopefully, with continued adjustments, he can continue to breathe properly.
I’m so happy I found this natural option instead of pursuing medications that contain chemicals that could be harmful to his little body!
