Kids and Chiropractic
At Whole Family Chiropractic, we believe that a healthy life-style begins in childhood. We recommend chiropractic checkups for kids of all ages to help prevent future problems and help them realize their ultimate health potential.
How can chiropractic help children?
Kids have spines, just like adults. Kids also have stresses to their spines, just like adults. Mechanical stresses such as poor posture, heavy book bags, learning to walk, and even the birth process can affect the growing and developing spine. Chemical stresses such as junk food, medications and pollution also affect the body. These stresses on the spine can cause subluxations (nerve interference) which can negatively affect overall health. With gentle, specific chiropractic adjustments, nerve flow is restored, as well as a greater level of health. There are numerous studies that show the benefits of chiropractic for children who suffer from ear infections, allergies, asthma, ADHD, and bed wetting – just to mention a few.
