Pediatric Chiropractic Care – The Establishment of Health

The First Trauma That Goes Unrecognized

When establishing health, always look towards the spine first.  Why?  The brain was the first “thing” that was made in utero. The brain then made the spinal cord and a protective coat of armor called the spine / spinal bones / vertebrae.  By accessing the health of the spine, we are accessing the entire health of the body.  The first trauma that your spine endures is the birth process.  This is often neglected and forgotten about because of the euphoric feeling that happens after a new born is brought into the world.  Early labor, active labor, delivery and the overall birth itself is stressful on a newborn.  We cannot stress enough the importance of pediatric chiropractic following birth.

Pediatric Chiropractic Care

If you want the best for your child, get them checked immediately after the birth process and continue from there.  A subluxation is an irritated nerve fiber that places undo stress upon the central nerve system.  A subluxation can be created through the birth process.  The only way to know is to get checked following birth.  Your spine is literally the backbone of your body’s ability to function properly. The focus of chiropractic care is to remove any physiological blocks to the proper expression of the body’s innate wisdom.  Pediatric chiropractic adjustments are gentle and noninvasive on your child.

The Numbers Are Not In Our Favor

Check out these statistics about the United States and the growing epidemics in our children.  These numbers are silent in nature and only hit home when it is our child that is affected.  Birth traumas that went uncorrected and neglected increased risk of autism five-fold.

  • Autism 1 in 45 children
  • Attention Deficit 1 in 10 children
  • Asthma 1 in 10 children
  • Allergies 1 in 4 children
  • Diabetes 1 in 4 children
  • Obesity 1 in 3 children
  • Major Depression 1 in 2 children

We are not saying that birth trauma causes these numbers or does not cause these numbers.  You have two choices…Stress Vulnerability or Stress Resiliency.  In our office and the community we are reaching, we are committed to Stress Resiliency Care in our office.  Pediatric chiropractic care is the foundation to health.

Top Reasons ADD/ADHD and Chiropractic Find Focus

The Approach To ADD/ADHD

Chiropractors understand that the most important system in the entire body is the nerve system.  The spine is the gateway which allows for ALL communication between the brain and the body and visa versa.  Subluxations are what chiropractors are trained to access the spine for and adjust if necessary.  A subluxation causes dysfunction within the entire central nerve system causing disruption of proper nerve system communication.  Physical stressors such as birth trauma or intrauterine constraint, chemical stressors such as diet or medication and emotional stressors such as anxiety or sleeping problems can lead to subluxations.

What Is The Cause

ADD/ADHD when using the term comes off as a diagnosis that is unexplained and just typically happens.  ADD/ADHD are states of imbalance in the central nerve system, usually with one of the systems working harder than the other.  The autonomic nerve system divides into two divisions, the fight or flight reponse side or the rest and relaxation side.  When the body perceives it is in danger such as subluxation from stressors in our life the fight or flight response is triggered.  Your child is then in a protective mode of being in a constant state of fight or flight.  This results in inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity.

Action Steps For ADD/ADHD

Natural choices that parents can make for their children have been tested and have survived the test of time.  We do not have to make “Health” a complicated thing, no medication is required when accessing the nerve system.  By properly accessing the nerve system and providing a proper functioning system for children with ADD/ADHD you can achieve improvements in their lifestyle.  If the nerve system is properly functioning than all other systems will be firing and working at their optimal potential.
