How do children benefit from Chiropractic?
Children receive the same great benefits that adults receive when using chiropractic. A clear connection between the brain and the body via the nerves is established and maintained when a spinal column is properly aligned, and maintained in alignment. Everybody benefits in that their entire body functions at it’s very best when well adjusted. But children have one benefit that adults do not have. They are growing and forming bodies and organs that are now small, but will grow to adult size over the next several years. And since the body grows from the brain, spinal cord, and nerves outward, being well aligned in the spine allows for the body to grow to it’s fullest genetic potential. It is a window of opportunity that only happens once in a lifetime. Routine chiropractic care throughout childhood is one of the greatest gifts that you can give to your children.
Is it safe for children?
Yes it is safe, and children really like it. Most are happy and comfortable getting adjusted from the very first visit. On occasion, a child is fearful in the beginning, but with gentle insistence, in a very short time those same children also come to enjoy their visits to our office.
What can I do?
Be serious about the benefit of chiropractic to your children, and bring them in for routine visits throughout their entire childhood.
