Pediatric Chiropractic Care
Children are some of the biggest beneficiaries of chiropractic care. Surprised? Many people think of chiropractic as primarily a solution for neck and back problems are surprised to learn that chiropractic care can be helpful for many types of childhood health problems.
Chiropractic and the Central Nervous System
The Central Nervous System consists of the brain, spinal cord and all of the nerves of the body, it controls and regulates the ENTIRE body. Many childhood health problems are the result of nervous system interference, usually along the spine. Subluxation occurs when a misalignment and fixation within the spine creates stress and tension on the nerves. This stress causes the Central Nervous System to go into a protective state of fight or flight.
Our gentle pediatric adjusting techniques help remove these subluxations and reduce the nerve interference so your child's body can resume working as it was designed to do. Better health is the natural result when the brain, body and nervous system have clear communication pathways.
Chiropractors are the only doctors trained to detect and remove these subluxations.
What Causes Subluxation?
The birth process is a very common cause of subluxation, especially a birth process that was a C-section, vacuum extraction or a stressful birth. Due to the unfortunate problems caused by increased interventions during the birth process that may lead to childhood health issues it is important to have your child checked for subluxation as soon as possible after birth.
As children continue to grow their spines undergo many forms of trauma as they learn to walk and crawl, play and become involved in sports. It has been said that a child undergoes enough falls in one day to put an adult in the hospital. Many of these things may again result in subluxations which can be easily detected and removed by a doctor of chiropractic.
The Most Common Reasons Kids Visit the Chiropractor
While the effects of the subluxation and nervous system interference go by a variety of names our primary aim is to locate, remove the underlying nervous system interference and minimize symptomology.
