Yes, that’s correct! Chiropractic care is not just for pain relief, in fact, it was never intended to only be used for analgesic purposes. Relief of low back pain, neck pain, and headaches are some of the smallest benefits that you’ll ever get from chiropractic care. Regular chiropractic care is a way to keep you and your family healthy.
The spine protects the most important organ system in your body, the nervous system, which is made up of your brain which sends messages down your spinal cord and then from the spinal cord, those messages are sent out of billions of nerve fibers to every single organ, tissue and cell of your body. If there is any interference in this very intricate system, it can lead to a state of disharmony in the body such as organ malfunction, lowered immune system function, sickness, health challenges and disease. This interference is caused by misalignments of the spine called subluxations.
So how can a child have a subluxation or an interference in his or her nervous system? Such things as a breech pregnancy, a constrained uterus, a difficult delivery which may have required forceps, vacuum extraction, or even a cesarean section can cause damage to the spine, especially the cervical spine. Health problems found in children and even adults have been traced all the way back to spinal damage at birth. As the child begins to grow into a toddler, they begin to walk and fall hundreds of times. As the toddler continues to grow into a child and adolescent, they now are much more active, running, jumping, playing sports, dance, gymnastics, etc… For these reasons, it is imperative to have your child’s spine checked for nerve interference, especially if your child suffers from health challenges such as asthma, frequent sickness, ear infections, colic, constipation, bed wetting, ADHD, sensory processing disorders, breast feeding difficulties, scoliosis, and growing pains. These symptoms are all signs that your child may have interference in nervous system.
In my experience, parents now are looking for a more natural and holistic way to keep their children healthy. Chiropractic care offers a safe, gentle, drug free and effective way to keep you and your family healthy. Include regular chiropractic assessments as part of your family’s healthcare routine.
