Why More Parents are Turning to Chiropractic Care

September 30, 2014

In an effort to provide their children with the best chance at living a healthy life, more and more parents are turning to chiropractic care. In fact, survey data from the American Chiropractic Association shows that chiropractic care for children is the most commonly used form of alternative care for people under the age of 17.

Since doctors of chiropractic focus on adjusting the communication line between our body and brain, visiting a chiropractor is an excellent complement to your child’s pediatric health care routine. Not only can your child suffer from the birthing process (which can cause subluxations), but they can also experience falls and other forms of impact that cause pain or discomfort as they grow and learn how to do new things. Therefore, regular care from a chiropractic doctor can help prevent negative consequences for your child as they grow.

The Anglo-European College of Chiropractic has conducted several studies on how chiropractic care can benefit infants. One study involved 114 babies that were unable to breast-feed properly or exclusively. After receiving five or fewer treatments over a two-week period, 78 percent of these babies were breast-feeding as a source of nourishment. The college also received very positive results on studies focused on colic.

Additionally, a Canadian study including more than 200 surveys from parents with 10-year-old children has shown that approximately 60 percent of parents have added chiropractic care to their children’s health plan. The study included children with a range of chronic illnesses, from asthma and epilepsy to cerebral palsy. Parents who chose to add chiropractic care to their children’s resources reported positively about the benefits.

The bottom line in chiropractic care for children is this — once your child enters the world with nerve interference in their spine, they’re better off alive without nerve interference.
