Children can have nerve issues that occur from everyday activities & life, such as poor posture, falling down, bumping their heads, injury from sports & poor food choices. Chiro adjustments can help with brain function & nerve development, which is why it's important your children's bodies are aligned & functioning at it's best. Many parents are beginning to introduce chiropractic care into their children's lives from birth to young adulthood.
Chiropractic care for children can help with (Colic) or "Birth trauma" & Success in Breastfeeding:
A child's first nerve misalignment can begin in the uterus, the spine adapts to the restricted areas of the mother's uterus that undergoes further stress during delivery. If their necks & shoulders are misaligned this can cause pain when trying to breastfeed & the only way babies can communicate to us is through crying & fussiness. With chiro care, proper alignment can increase the chances for breastfeeding.
Does your child always seem to be getting sick?
Children have immature immune systems & are more prone to getting sick with an ear infection or sinus congestion. If your child has an ear infection, an adjustment can help assist in relieving the fluid build up in the ear & prevent future ear infections & the immune system can begin to work more efficiently to allow your child to get better much quicker.
Does your child have poor sleeping patterns or loss of appetite?
In many instances a blocked nerve can interrupt the function between the brain & stomach, causing digestion & constipation problems. When your child's body is aligned & the interference is removed the brain is free to communicate properly & he/she will have a better night sleep & so will you. A normal appetite & bowel movement will also return.
