What about their spine?
Most parents think it makes good sense to have routine check-ups for their kids’ visits to the eye doctor, the family doctor, and the dentist are usually preventative, not reactive. Well, here’s something to think about: What about a spinal check-up?
Spinal problems do not magically start in adulthood. The old proverb of “As the twig is bent so grows the tree” often applies to our children. Small spinal problems as a child can turn into larger issues later in life. Our children are much more sedentary today than they used to be, using more computers, and often lack proper muscle tone to effectively support their spine. These means that children of all ages can suffer from health and wellness issues stemming from the spine and neck. Fortunately, children can also benefit from chiropractic care.
At any moment, your brain is communicating with your body via the amazing and intricate Nerve System. This is a two-way street, and your body also sends messages back to your brain. It is vital that this communication pathway between the brain and the body be clear in order for your body to heal and function at its best.
A Spinal Check-up in an often-overlooked assessment for our children. Misalignments of the spinal bones put pressure on nerves that go to and from the brain, and this disrupts your body’s ability to function and heal optimally. Proper health and alignment of the spine are critical in maintaining the optimal functioning of the Nerve System. While Chiropractors do not claim to treat any disease or condition, many parents have reported that their children who suffered from ADD/ADHD, allergies, asthma, autism, Asperger’s, colic, acid reflux, bed-wetting, torticollis, and other health concerns, have received tremendous benefits from care.
