Chiropractic for kids! Chiropractic care is a 100% all natural approach to building and maintaining your child’s health from birth to adulthood. Here are just a few reasons why chiropractic care makes perfect sense for kids. The number one reason is immune system health. Periodic spinal check-ups remove neural impulse blockages that come from fixated or stuck spinal bones. This decrease in nerve impulses inhibits function and performance of the immune system. Many studies show that spinal alignment issues contribute neural factors that influence immune system function. The number two reason is spinal curvature problems. As a small toddler learning to walk, many bumps and falls are taken. These bumps and falls can cause spinal bones to become fixated in the wrong position. Once the spinal bones are not aligned properly and the child continues to grow or has growth spurts, the spine can grow crooked which causes a curvature issue like scoliosis. Once children become older and even more active (think sports, bike riding, skateboarding etc.), alignment issues from these activities are even more common. In today’s society, what child does not spend a lot of time on their phone, tablet or video games? This forward slumped posture not only causes postural issues, but tension on the spinal muscles which then causes misalignment leading to further curvature problems, not to mention neck and back discomfort or headaches.
