A major concern for many parents is how to ensure each of your children have the opportunity to become their healthy best. Many studies now show that achieving our best as adults, on physical, mental, social, and occupational levels is in large shaped by the windows of opportunity opened during childhood. Until recently a child was thought to be healthy when he or she had no symptoms. However, a number of studies now suggest that is not always the case and that health is better defined as the ability of a child’s body to interpret, and then appropriately respond to environmental and lifestyle stresses.
There is one system in your child’s body that is in charge of accurately interpreting the messages coming from the environment, and deciding which messages to send so that the body appropriately adapts. That system is the nervous system. It is the master control system of growth, repair and the function of every tissue and organ in the body. A Board Certified Pediatric Chiropractor has undergone extensive training in order to become highly proficient at detecting and correcting one of the most common and often undetected causes of interference to a child’s nervous system, the spinal subluxation. Specific Chiropractic adjustments for children are safe, gentle, effective and enhance the body’s inborn potential for well-being. In addition to optimal immune system function, children under chiropractic care see improvement in many areas, including allergies, ear infections, colic, asthma, common colds, constipation and digestive issues, skin issues, ADHD, behavior issues, and bed wetting.
