  As parents search for proactive lifestyle habits that will nurture their children’s health and family, chiropractic care is leading the way. Chiropractic awareness is shifting from being an intervention for pain relief toward a more proactive, wellness-oriented healthcare choice. Many aspects of chiropractic care are beneficial to improve and maintain health in children. Chiropractic pediatrics balances the child’s nervous system having a major impact on development, including learning, attention and focus. Nerve impulse blockages can disrupt communication from the brain too the rest of the body leading to issues with attention and even dyslexia. Chiropractic care works to improve neural flow with spinal motion, opening up spaces within the joints that can become "crowded" and irritate the neural flow.  In addition, a healthy nervous system ensures nerve impulses to vital organs and systems are working properly. Lastly, as children are growing, misalignments in the spine can lead to curvature problems such as scoliosis. Dr. Candice Pert, a recognized leader in the field of psychoneuroimmunology, credits chiropractic as having a “significant effect on maximizing immunity via maintenance of a healthy nervous system. 

During pregnancy care in the chiropractor's office, many pregnant women learn of the pediatric neural health connection and soon after birth bring their child to the chiropractor for regular developmental health care.
