As a parent, we all want our children to be healthy and live up to their unique potential. Although there are many things that come together to create optimal health, proper communication between your child’s brain and body, through optimal spine and nervous system function, is essential for optimal development and function.
During birth, the spine (particularly the neck) often becomes compressed, rotated and stretched. Even uncomplicated, natural childbirth can be one of the most traumatic events of your child’s life. Modern obstetric birth with its numerous interventions only increases the trauma and likelihood of spinal injuries. Although birth subluxations may cause immediate symptoms, such as respiratory distress, colic or nursing difficulties, they often go undetected or neglected and compound with injuries and accumulated stress as they grow and develop eventually leading to the common problems that adults regularly face and deal with.
Spinal problems that go undetected or neglected in childhood become more serious problems in adults. Spinal adjustments are specifically tailored to meet the child’s size and range from a gentle concentrated pressure to a light gentle impulse that looks vaguely similar to a typical adult chiropractic adjustment. Don’t leave your children at home to develop the same problems that you have. Act now!
