Chiropractic for Kids Ensures a Healthy Pattern of Growth
Pediatric chiropractic adjustments are gentle, noninvasive, and safe. Newborns and children at Aspire Chiropractic & Massage have experienced amazing results with ear infections, acid reflux, allergies, digestive issues, asthma, headaches, and more. Adjusting babies from birth ensures any misalignments that took place during childbirth are addressed, allowing the body to function as it’s designed from the beginning.
Gentle chiropractic adjustments can be used to treat a number of common health conditions experienced by infants, children, and teens. These include:
Immune system function issues
Chronic ear infections
Many of these issues can be traced back to the physical trauma caused by birth.
When a baby is born significant spinal trauma can occur. There is so much pressure on that tiny body as it comes into the world. For this reason, many parents have their newborns checked right away. As babies grow and start learning to hold their heads, sit, crawl and then walk, they are using their spine. Spinal alignment in babies is critical to ensure proper growth and to prevent any injuries as the child ages and becomes more adventurous.
Pediatric chiropractic becomes even more essential as a child ages. They start to do normal childhood activities like riding a bike, skating, sports, etc. and these can result in small but significant spinal misalignments. If these spinal misalignments are neglected in childhood where we see the most rapid period of growth in a person’s life, they can lead to more serious problems later in life. Subtle trauma throughout childhood will affect the future development of the spine leading to impaired nervous system function. Any interference to the vital nerve system will adversely affect the body’s ability to function at its best.
This pressure causes long-term physical implications, including cranial issues, spinal adhesions, and injuries to the head, neck, and spinal canal. Parents are often surprised to learn that the health issues their children are experiencing originate from these structural problems. When chiropractic is used to correct the effects of birth trauma, we can treat childhood health issues without prescription medication.
When you bring your child to Aspire Chiropractic & Massage, we’ll start with an evaluation of the spine to assess its alignment. Next, we use our hands or a small tool to make light, gentle adjustments to restore normal alignment and unblock nerve flow. With a healthier nervous system, your child’s body will start to heal from birth trauma naturally.
