As a family chiropractor we see whole families here at our office. Our patients understand the importance of health at any age, including infancy. Some people are surprised that families will bring in their children, sometimes as young as one day old, to get adjusted. They wonder why a child would need chiropractic because they are “too young to have health problems.” The truth is: your child probably needs chiropractic more than you!
From the trauma of birth to the many bumps and dings they receive learning how to crawl and walk, infants are prone to misalignment. They would benefit greatly from periodic adjustments to make sure their body stays in alignment as they grow. A lifelong problem can start as early as childhood and go undetected for years.
As a child grows, they spend hours sitting in classrooms, their free time running around a playground, slipping and falling, roughhousing, playing sports. Life should not slow you down and with regular chiropractic care, it shouldn’t. It is always easier to keep an already healthy spine aligned than to try and adjust it back to health after years of dysfunction and degeneration.
The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association is dedicated to sharing their research on the benefits of chiropractic for children. Check out their website at http://icpa4kids.com/research/ for interesting information pertaining to your child’s health.
Chiropractic care is essential to maintaining a healthy, properly functioning body. By bringing your children in for regular care, you are enriching their future health as they grow. Preventative care is the best care. If your child has grown up with chiropractic, any serious traumas that may occur will be easier to treat—often leading to faster and better recovery.
So come on in, bring your whole family and join the thousands of other families who have discovered the benefits of chiropractic!
