“Can Chiropractic care benefit my child?” you might ask. "Why would it, his back doesn't hurt?”
There are many reasons why chiropractic care is beneficial for children and adolescents, and why chiropractic is more than care for an aching back.
The sensory nerves that transmit pain represent only 10% of the entire nervous system. So, the definition of health needs to be expanded beyond basic pain or symptom relief. If you “feel good,” does that mean you are healthy? Have you ever known someone to go to the doctor only to find out that they have a serious condition even though they “felt good?”
Regular chiropractic spinal checkups for children are one of the most important checkups your children will have. If there is any blockage of the nerves along the spinal cord, then dis-ease or miscommunication can occur in the body, causing a weakening in the body’s communication and potentially lowering their immune system and overall body function.
Chiropractic can help children by gently clearing the nervous system and allowing their bodies to function normally. Many parents have observed positive improvement in behavior and emotional states, and improvement with neurological problems including asthma, anxiety, inability to concentrate, hyperactivity and discipline problems. Chiropractic can help children experiencing problems with poor posture, bed-wetting, stomach aches, ear infections, eye problems, sinus, asthma and wheezing, frequent colds and scoliosis.
Best of all, chiropractic can help children enjoy life and be well with their bodies functioning their very best. Dr. Keith Lavender specializes in Atlas Orthogonal, a precise and very gentle type of adjustment that focuses on the Atlas, the first vertebrae of the spine.
