Starting with the birthing process itself, our bodies are subjected to many spinal traumas. Even the most “natural” of births can cause stress and strain to the tiny developing spine. This initial damage can be compounded when the infant is developing proper head support and is learning to sit up, crawl, and walk. During this time of rapid spinal growth, these tiny bumps and falls can be the cause of many unexplained health problems down the road.
The home is the primary site where the young child receives spinal injuries. A study, conducted by the National Safety Council, discovered that nearly 50% of children fall headfirst from a high place (changing table, bed, etc.) during their first year of life. Many of these falls go undetected.
Unfortunately, although immediate symptoms may not be apparent, spinal health can be compromised.
Ear infections, asthma, colic, ADD/hyperactivity, bedwetting, learning disorders, and other health problems may actually be the result of nervous system interference called vertebral subluxation complex. Doctors of Chiropractic are the only health care professionals trained in the detection and correction of this problem. Children should have regular wellness visits to their Doctor of Chiropractic. Appropriate chiropractic care can locate and correct these spinal problems, restoring normal spinal and nervous system function.
Today, many progressive parents are choosing conservative chiropractic care to help maximize their child’s own natural defenses. Parents of children who receive regular chiropractic care often report that their kids seem healthier than other children and that they get fewer colds and other childhood diseases. Without a properly functioning spine and nervous system, true health is impossible to achieve. Maintaining your child’s spinal health is one of the greatest gifts you can give your child.
Today many parents are choosing to ensure that their children receive periodic chiropractic spinal check-ups-a safe, natural and gentle approach to making sure your child is as healthy as possible.
