Parents see their children experience many falls and spills during their growing-up years, seemingly insignificant at the time. These minor injuries turning into significant health issues with damaging effects as the years go by is a great probability. This is why parents should understand the importance of child chiropractic care.
With so much information available today, young parents have a greater understanding than previous generations about the development of their children.They do not have to live with the same physical difficulties of their parents or grandparents. There is a greater understanding of how the nervous system works--the master control system of growth, repair and function of every tissue and organ in the body. This nervous system interprets the messages coming from the environment and decides which messages to send to the body so that it adjusts itself appropriately.
It has been shown by research data that many children who experience symptoms of colic, ear infections and asthma have spinal subluxations impairing their nervous system function.With regular child chiropractic care, your child’s nervous system is kept in correct alignment so that their body receives the correct signals for growing and functioning.
So what are pediatric chiropractic benefits? Chiropractors specializing in child chiropractic care use specific, gentle techniques—sometimes as light as the touch of a finger. When the child’s nervous system is free of stress and tension, their entire body, both physical and mental, is positively affected. Detecting and correcting problems early in childhood can prevent layers layers of damage from occurring in the child's vital nervous system and causing chronic pain in their adult years.
