Common Childhood Ailments
Common things that parents bring their kids in for are major falls, ear infections, birth trauma, food sensitivites, and general neurologic development. With children rapidly growing (the spine doubles in length during the first 2 years of life!), it is important that they receive care to ensure their nervous system is developing correctly. Many adult issues are the result of long term structural and neurological imbalances. Below is a short list of why a parent may bring in their child for chiropractic care.
It is important to note that chiropractors do not treat diseases, we treat the child. By removing nerve interference we allow the child's nervous system to function at an optimal level. When this happens, the immune system functions more efficiently, resistance to diease increases, and your child's body functions more efficiently. Your child can then respond to internal and external environmental stresses better.
