Chiropractic Care Helps Children Too

by Dr. Karen Cann on February 14, 2012

From the tight enclosed womb to the trauma of birth to the traumas children experience from falls, learning to walk and ride a bike, knocks and falls and rough-housing with other children, they too need Chiropractic care.

The most common problems we see in children exist in the upper neck near the base of the skull (the 1st and 2nd cervical vertebrae). This can cause headaches including migranes, nervousness, insomnia (difficulty sleeping), head colds, high blood pressure, nervous breakdowns, amnesia, chronic tiredness, dizziness, sinus troubles, allergies, pain around the eyes, ear aches, fainting spells, blindness, crossed eyes, deafness, acne, pimples, eczema, and nerve-type pain.

 As children get older, we see more pelvic disorders particularly from falls, lack of exercise and poor posture, or from tight, inflexible muscles. The stressors can be physical, chemical (food and drink, in breast milk, the clothes they wear, the toys they play with, environmental including second hand smoke, drugs and medications, vaccines) or emotional: anxiety, ADHD, ADD, school, sports, lack of play time, TV video games, difficult parents, peer pressure, teachers and aides, living life in the fast lane!

Today, kids are sicker than ever and it comes from how our medicine, society, diet, environment, and government have changed over the past many years. Did you know that chiropractic adjustments can increase your child’s immunity?

Most people don’t know that health starts from the spine. Most people wait until there is a major symptom to go to the Chiropractor. Your health care should be about prevention and wellness! Changes in the bones and discs of the spine can start to change as early as 10 years of age, but typically go undetected for many years until the symptoms show up (and the symptoms are always last to come).

It’s time to empower our families and especially our children to be healthier each and every day! The small choices and decisions we make daily add up over time. Consider the impact your decisions have on health. What are the future circumstances of those decisions? What is your health worth? Everything should be the answer, every time.

Together we can protect our children. Make a difference, TO THEM! Chiropractic is safe and gentle, not drugs or injections.
