Children and the truth about Chiropractic Care.
Chiropractors all over the world check and adjust their own childrens’ spines on a regular basis. My own daughter is checked every single week and here’s why;
Current science and research prove that providing care for a child’s spine and nervous system on a regular basis proves to be one of the most important and necessary strategies a parent can implement for their family’s health.
A 1992 study revealed that harmful physical trauma during the birth process causes misalignment of the upper neck area.
The subtle misalignment creates a disturbance to normal nervous system function.
The authors studied six hundred children under the age of two years old and found some form of asymmetry of posture, alignment, and/or movement in every infant assessed.
Signs and symptoms attributed directly to interference in the nervous system included breastfeeding difficulties, torticollis, sleeping disorders, loss of appetite, feet deformities, swelling of the face/head, fever of unknown origin, extreme sensitivity of the neck, and parents concerned with their child’s feeding habits.
These findings substantiating many other similar studies conducted on adults and babies suffering from upper neck syndromes (called vertebral subluxation) that often exhibited no outward signs or symptoms. The majority of vertebral subluxations occur with no symptoms.
Chiropractors believe health care should involve proactive education and care that does not involve unnecessary drugs and surgery. Regular Chiropractic care removes spinal misalignments and asymmetries that inevitably cause dysfunction and dis-ease in children and adults.
Chiropractic does not simply help reduce or eliminate pain. Chiropractors pursue the optimisation of body function in every individual by proactively unlocking the body’s innate potential to prevent pain and disease from ever occurring.
An adjustment empowers the nervous system to operate as intended.
Health care exists not just when pain subsides but when abundant life flows freely through the body.
