Chiropractic Care and Kids
Pediatric chiropractic is a little less known by general society. Typically, the story is to see a chiropractor when you are experiencing pain of some kind, usually in your back. However, considering that the spine houses the spinal cord, which is the main highway of information running from the brain to the body, interference in the nerve communication can lead many other kinds of signs and symptoms. The awareness of pain is just one small part of what your nervous system is responsible for.
This is why when getting chiropractic care for one specific issue may actually end up with you noticing that other issues are getting resolved. Better sleep, better digestion, improved mood, less illnesses are all things clients have reported noticing while under care.
The same goes for kids! They don't have the typical back pain symptoms but they do have difficulty sleeping, constipation, digestive issues, irritability, anxiety and other mood/behavioral disorders, bladder problems and bedwetting, breastfeeding struggles, colic, acid reflux, constant colds and ear infections, and on and on the list goes.
This is how their body communicates. These issues are common but not normal. The adjustment for a child is very gentle and most kids love being adjusted!
Seeking out a pediatric chiropractor (hey I think I might know one😉) can make a world of a difference in your child's life!
