Chiropractic for Kids!
Life is a miracle. Two cells become four and four become eight and so on until nine months later a perfect human being enters the world. His little heart started beating at 24 days. Her eyes formed at 36 days. As amazing as that is, the nervous system is so important that the first cells to differentiate at about 7 hours after conception become the brain and spinal cord! This miracle unfolds perfectly–unless there is interference.
Being born is a natural phenomenon. It’s what we’ve done to the birth process that has become increasingly suspect. In hospitals, birth is often treated like a disease. Even today’s birthing procedures can put tremendous pressures on a child’s spine. And while the injury from forceps deliveries may be less common today, vacuum extraction and eager hands can do even more damage by pulling, forcing and twisting the baby’s young spine.
Without the language to explain, infants announce their spinal problems in the only way they know how, by crying. Many newborns experience colic, unexplained crying, lack of appetite, frequent ear infections or other signs of poor health. Sadly, bedwetting and many childhood aches and pains are passed off as “growing pains” or “just a phase they’re going through.” Careful! Aches and pains at any age are a sign that something isn’t right. Spinal misalignments and nerve interference may be involved.
If indicated, a gentle, life-affirming adjustment is given. Many parents see instant improvements in the well-being of their child. Regular chiropractic checkups are helpful to monitor spinal development as infants sit upright, support their heads, learn to crawl and take their first brave steps.
As you make decisions about your baby’s health care and are confronted with the issues of antibiotics, vaccinations and the growing use of behavior altering drugs, please consult our office and seek accurate information. All we ask is that you make an informed choice. Most importantly, make sure your child has the best chance to be all that he or she can be by having a nervous system free of interference.
