CLA Update: Chiropractic Care Can Benefit Your Child!

September 17, 2014

From traveling through the birth canal to growth spurts and minor injuries, children’s bodies go through a lot that can cause a misaligned vertebra, resulting in spinal nerve interference. Largely caused by an increase in childhood chronic illnesses, more parents are seeking the help of chiropractic care for children as an alternative to drugs and other invasive practices.

Many people believe chiropractic care is only for adults who suffer from joint or back pain, when in fact, children can benefit greatly from this care option. Children receive gentle spinal adjustments that re-align the spine and remove nerve interference, allowing the body’s communication system to operate smoothly. Not only do these adjustments correct pain issues, but they also improve the immune system and can help with childhood problems, such as colic, bed-wetting and more.

Correcting subluxations and improving the nervous system has proved helpful in other chronic childhood issues, such as ear infections, asthma, allergies and ADHD. With an increase in chiropractic care for children of over 8 percent in the last decade, more parents are realizing the benefits of seeking health care from chiropractors for their children’s ailments.

Your child’s first appointment will consist of a thorough analysis, and your chiropractor may ask questions regarding your child’s birth, diet and nutrition. They may also perform a neurological scan to determine where your child’s nerve interference is along their spine.

Once the analysis is complete your chiropractor will develop a care plan, which may include gentle adjustments to relieve any nerve interference. These adjustments are gentle and smooth enough that many infants don’t even wake up during their visit. Although there are many benefits of chiropractic care for children, you shouldn’t avoid regular checkups with your pediatrician. This will ensure there are no underlying medical conditions.

Chiropractic Lifecare of America would like to help you save up to 50 percent on chiropractic care. Call 800.775.7900, or contact us to learn more about our network of chiropractic doctors. Please remember, if your child is suffering from nerve interference, they’re better off without nerve interference.
