As perfect together as bees and honey
Throughout your children’s lifetimes – from infancy into adulthood – chiropractic care can help ensure your child’s physical and emotional health. Chiropractic is the healthcare choice for millions of parents and their children throughout the world.
What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a natural healthcare system that respects the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Your chiropractor’s goal is to assist the body to regain optimal functioning by removing blockages and releasing stress so that balance and harmony can be restored.
The Earliest Years
You do so many things to ensure your baby’s health: during pregnancy you eat right; you avoid cigarettes, alcohol and all drugs, breast-feed but what about spinal health?
Chiropractors have helped babies suffering from nearly every condition imaginable: colic, vomiting, sleeping problems, tonsillitis, vision and hearing problems and many, many others. (1-3)
It is not unusual to hear parents state that since starting chiropractic care their children get sick less frequently and less severely, have less (or no) ear infections and take less (or no) antibiotics and other drugs. (4-5) Many conditions such as asthma and allergies have responded to chiropractic care. (6-7)
In addition there are reports of chiropractic care helping children suffering from autism. Some of these children have been re-evaluated and later re-diagnosed as normal after chiropractic care. (8-10)
For your child to reach his/her academic potential, he/she needs to be free from structural, brain and nervous system stress. Chiropractic care has been a blessing to many children (and their parents) who were experiencing learning problems.
Make sure your children start the new year as well and healthy as possible – call today to schedule a chiropractic checkup for them!
