Healthcare begins before birth.
Children benefit from chiropractic care before they are born, by having a mother who receives prenatal chiropractic checkups. A healthy diet, proper exercise, a stress-free environment, and a chiropractic lifestyle help prepare for a happy, healthy baby.
Chiropractic care can benefit the developing baby and help reduce the complications of labor.
Even so-called “natural” birthing methods can stress a still developing spine. The resulting irritation to the nervous system can be the cause of many newborn health complaints. Colic, unexplained crying, poor appetite, breathing problems, and allergic reactions can often be traced to nervous system dysfunction caused by a malfunctioning spine.
The spinal malfunction from falling when learning to walk, can often be helped with chiropractic care.
Head support, followed by crawling, and a baby’s first few steps should be followed by chiropractic checkups. If neglected, the bumps and falls during this period of rapid growth may lead to serious spinal deformities later in life. This can set the stage for scoliosis, “growing pains”, and a weakened immune system response.
Some children naturally enjoy their chiropractic adjustments.
Chiropractic adjusting techniques are modified to fit a child’s size, weight, and unique spinal problem. Parents often report that their children seem healthier than other kids their age.
Contact sports or repeated one-side activities can interfere with proper growth during rapid stages of spinal development.
Many spinal problems seen in adults begin in childhood. Proper spinal hygiene is an important key top better health. Do you know a child who could benefit from chiropractic care?
