Your child can have a chiropractic examination as soon after birth as possible. Spinal trauma to an infant or child’s spine can occur during the birth process as well as from any number of tumbles while learning to sit up or walk. Your child’s spine grows almost 50% in length during that first year (the equivalent of a six-footer growing to nine feet in just 12 months!). It’s this kind of tremendous growth and developmental changes that make continued chiropractic examinations so important in the early stages of your child’s life.
Chiropractors work with the bodies power to heal itself and be healthy. Through regular adjustments chiropractic can help you raise a child free of subluxations whose body is structurally and functionally sound. Your child will also learn good health habits at an early age that can be very beneficial to him or her as an adult. Youngsters suffer numerous accidents and falls while learning to walk, riding a bike, or even while jumping or running around. But after their tears have dried, underlying injuries could go undetected–such as a subluxation during the spine’s most formative period. Regular Chiropractic spinal exams allow for your son or daughter’s nervous system to function optimally.
This is our son Cole, who has never had a vaccination, antibiotic, or even an aspirin! He has only had a cold 3 times and never needed to do anything other than wait a day or two for his runny nose to go away and of course, get checked for subluxation.
It is especially important to have your child under chiropractic care when your child takes part in athletic activities. The “sack” of a young quarterback could twist a young spine. A softball pitcher could throw a vertebra out of alignment. In Chiropractic we can do more than correct these problems, we can also help improve performance on and off the field by helping the body function at its optimum level, naturally without stress and without drugs.
Call the office and schedule a time to have your child get checked for subluxation. If your child has a subluxation his/her full potentional may never be achieved, especially if they have any developmental disabilty, including ADD, ADHD, Allergies, Asthma, Ear Infections, etc.
