Kids Need Chiropractic Too …

“As the twig is bent, so grows the tree . . . ” is a chiropractic adage that is seen all too frequently in practice. Many of the problems we see in adulthood are the result of uncorrected spinal trauma from childhood.

Consider all the falls, accidents, sports injuries and mishaps that children experience growing up. That’s after learning to crawl, walk, run and ride a skate board! Children are often subjected to “barbaric rituals”; wearing ‘double’ diapers that do not allow proper hip movement and development, ‘jolly jumpers’ that stress spinal discs and hip joints, inlaws who insist on throwing your child into the air, thereby creating a ‘whiplash’ type of microtrauma to a delicate spine, poorly designed school desks, poor mattresses and sleeping postures, to name a few. Based on the ultimate effects this type of cumulative trauma will have on the development of young spines & nervous systems, wise parents who want the best for their children have them checked regularly for subluxations. Find a chiropractor you can trust and make him/ her part of your health care team.

Fact #1: Chiropractic care can help children – Researchers in the US, Germany, Denmark, Japan & Australia have shown the effectiveness of chiropractic care with a variety of common childhood illnesses. Read some fascinating research on the role of chiropractic and childhood headaches.

Fact #2: Chiropractic is safe – Today’s doctor of chiropractic receives a 4 year, post graduate degree at a government accredited chiropractic college, following 2-4 years of prechiropractic studies. This training & conservative approach makes chiropractic one of the safest forms of health care. Health problems outside the scope of chiropractic are referred to the proper medical specialist.

Fact #3: Many families use chiropractic as part of a healthy lifestyle – Along with regular dental and eye examinations, more & more of today’s parents are adding chiropractic spinal checkups for the entire family. The wellness and preventive aspects of chiropractic care are attracting informed, cost conscious health care consumers.

The unpredictable dangers of prescription drugs continue to make headline news. Wary of the indiscriminate use of antibiotics, tubes in young ears and other controversial treatments, concerned parents are including a chiropractic doctor on their health care team. When problems are detected and corrected before a child’s spine matures (late teens), the more chronic spinal problems can be often avoided.
