What Chiropractic Can Do for Your Child

Chriropractic for ChildrenI  love  when  parents  ask  about pediatric  chiropractic  because  children  and  babies  benefit  so greatly from it.

In fact, I have been a chiropractic patient myself since I was six  months  old!    Chiropractic   treatment   on  children  is accomplishing the same results as in adults, however, the technique is modified for their little bodies.

In other words, for children under the age of five, the treatment does not involve the “popping” noise commonly heard when adjusting adults.

Instead, the treatment is light vibration or massage over the misplaced spinal  segment to  restore its correct alignment. The reason why the correct alignment of the spinal joints  is  so important is because of the impact on the nervous system.

When vertebrae move out of place from physical, chemical, or emotional stress (which can even occur during the birthing process), the nerves that branch off of the spinal cord can be negatively impacted which makes it difficult for the brain and body to communicate.

This nerve interference has been shown to contribute to health symptoms like colic, ear infections, torticollis, allergies, constipation, and even ADHD.

From my own experience, children’s bodies respond excellently to chiropractic care when used as part of a healthy lifestyle.

In addition, N.A.E.T. (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique), of which I am a certified practitioner, is also extremely effective at clearing allergies safely and permanently in children (
