Why are more children seeing a chiropractor?

Many adults wonder why children are under chiropractic care.  The reason why is that it doesn’t matter your age, if your spinal misalignments are creating nerve interference then your body will not function properly or optimally.

Also, did you know that 65% of neurological development happens within the first year of life? Also, much of this development is stimulated through our environment through things such as:

●Play

●Sports

●Movement

●Touch

●Climbing

●Interactions with others

●Sickness

●Emotional events

Therefore, this phase is very important in a child’s life.

Our brain receives signals through various neurological pathways and 50% of the signals our brain receives comes from the movement of our spinal column. For instance, research tells us that proper movement is one of the major keys in ensuring proper development as balanced movement should occur within the various joints of the body and particularly the spine. This is where chiropractors come in, they help the body to achieve smooth joint and spinal column movement so signals that reach the brain are loud and clear.

How can chiropractic care help with a child’s development?

Trained chiropractors aid in a child’s development because they are able to assess and treat areas of the spinal column and nervous system that may stimulate negative feedback to the brain. This negative feedback impacts a child’s development and ongoing health. When chiropractors are caring for children they use gentle and effective techniques. The adjustment procedures followed are incredibly safe and most often only fingertip pressure is applied.

When should parents bring their children to a chiropractor?

Does your child have a tendency to regularly tilt or rotate their head to one side? Perhaps you noticed a shoulder tilt, flat spot on their head or that one eye is higher than the other? These are great examples of some of the reasons that parents have brought their children in seeking care. Maybe your child is behind on some of their developmental milestones, has poor balance or coordination or maybe they are having emotional or behavioral issues? We see children even for ailments such as progressive allergy developments and poor immunity.

Bringing your child in for chiropractic care allows them to be on the receiving end of optimal nerve function. Thus preventing the spine’s movements from being hindered and sending out negative feedback which can result in symptoms like the ones mentioned above. Safe and gentle chiropractic adjustments allow for ideal posture and coordination to develop as intended in children, naturally!
