Chiropractic and Kids

Unlocking the nervous system opens up new opportunities for you and your child to enjoy your bodies’ function, perception and adaptation. How old do you have to be to see a chiropractor? Many parents who are being seen at our office ask us this question and we have a very simple answer, there is no age requirement! Full body wellness through chiropractic adjustments should and is available to any person, even newborns. Taking your child to the chiropractor is the natural way to help your child grow in the healthiest way possible. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, parents who look for alternative forms of wellness for their children choose Chiropractic care the most often. The immune boosting quality that the adjustment offers can be an alternative form of healing from things like: the common cold. Chiropractic care boosts the immune system and helps with anxiety, stress, back and neck pain, and other musculoskeletal problems.

Parents choose alternative therapies for their children because of word of mouth, fear of drug side effects, chronic medical problems, and, to a certain extent, dissatisfaction with conventional medicine.
—University of Montreal

“Chiropractic care for children is one of the safest and least invasive forms of healthcare available.”
—Chirofutures, a leading malpractice insurance company

The Wellness of Chiropractic

How often do you go to the dentist to take care of your teeth? Just as we take care of our teeth on a daily basis, taking care of your spine is an important part of your wellness routine. When a nerve is trapped, the body is unable to respond and function as it should in our daily lives. Unlocking the joints with a Chiropractic adjustment allows the body to maintain good posture and full body wellness.
Chiropractic care is known for its ability to treat symptoms like back and neck pain, but its wellness effect on a person’s life is a major part of continuing to go to the Chiropractor. Growing our patients’ knowledge on the wellness benefits of chiropractic is a huge part of our office. In a recent study done by the NHIS, 43% of the households that responded to the survey replied that they sought out chiropractic care for general wellness. As our patients continue to come in to our office, they are reaping the benefits that our wellness plans provide!
Some of the benefits of Chiropractic Wellness care are:
Increased energy
Better digestion
Stronger immune system
Better sleep
Improved clarity of thought

Can Your Headaches be Helped?

Headaches can be frustrating and often times can be tricky to get rid of,but if the cause of them is known it can be easier to get rid of them. Something as simple as daily activities that can be perceived as normal can affect how the body reacts. A change of diet, excessive exercise, stressful situations and even a change in weather can cause or “trigger” a headache. But a majority of headaches are caused by neck tension.

In the work place a lot of time is spent sitting in one spot and for an extended amount of time. This in turn can create muscle tension in the neck and thus generate what is called a tension headache. As we all know, these can affect day to day activities such as

  1. Driving
  2. Social activities
  3. Work

What can you do?

1.Stretch every 30 mins to an hour to take a break from sitting.

2.Drink water in order to keep hydrated.

3.If you are a candidate for chiropractic care, getting an adjustment on your cervical spine will help alleviate those headaches in frequency and pain.

4.Come in to our clinic and postural exercises can be shown to you to help with balance and get you back on the right track.

Small Change

Many health problems provide subtle warnings long before they become serious. Like radio telescopes scanning the heavens for the faintest signals from space, being aware of these early signs is important. If you ignore these quiet warnings, your body will increase these murmurings into something much louder to get your attention!

Those of us who are keenly aware of our body are sensitive to things like:

  • Changes in digestion or intestinal gas.
  • Pain when attempting to turn or bend.
  • A new and persistent cough.
  • Increased frequency of urination.
  • Sudden loss or increase of weight.
  • Appearance of dark circles under the eyes.
  • Inability to fall asleep or stay asleep.

Waiting until symptoms become pronounced makes correction more difficult. If you’ve been waiting for a problem to “go away on its own,” call our practice for a thorough examination.
