When Should A Child Begin Chiropractic Care?

When should a child begin Chiropractic care? Right away. That just about sums up the question. Why? Do you remember what birth was like…and the answer should be no. The first AMAZING physical stressor that we ALL experience in life is birth. Making sure the nerve system is free of interference after birth can set the child up for a healthy road, opposed to a complicated road riddled with chronic illness. Unfortunately, the numbers are not adding up for our children, and now, for this generation, our kids have a lower life expectancy than us.

·  1 in 2.5 children have an allergy

·  1 in 6 children have a developmental disability

·  1 in 9 children have ADHD

The rise of autoimmune disorders is not stopping. The child’s immune system is under constant bombardment with our false intuition that we need to suppress symptoms and destroy acute illnesses. Rather than blame the immune system, focus on the central nerve system which regulates the immune systems potential. Our specialty as chiropractors is to restore the normal communication of the central nerve system through very specific adjustments over a period of time. We are removing the biggest stressor to health: a subluxated nerve system. By adjusting the spinal column, we are restoring that state of ease which allows your child to better adapt to the stressors to be dealt with in daily life.

Kids chiropractic is safe and effective and is not new! Our misconception is that Chiropractic care is for middle-aged men who “throw” their back out taking out the trash. This is the farthest thing from the truth. You wouldn’t wait to give your children healthy substantial food until their middle-ages or take them to the dentist only when their tooth hurts.

Instead of living a symptom suppressing lifestyle which is the common norm now a days, why not introduce a lifestyle of prevention and health. By focusing on the central nerve system to make sure subluxations are clear the body learns a valuable process which it builds on for the long road ahead of life. “Give me a medicine to produce a fever, and I can cure any disease” – Hippocrates. 

The Uncompromising Allergies Symptoms

The Uncompromising Allergies Symptoms

Allergies symptoms seem to sprout up during the spring season.  As we are gearing up for some amazing hikes, water time, and just being outside we might become limited with possible allergies acting up.  After experiencing a “flare up” it can become very debilitating and self-limiting.  So, let’s boost that immune system the only natural way that does not involve taking anything!  Have your nerves checked for vertebral subuxations (dysfunction in the nerve system).  Am I saying that a vertebral subluxation causes allergies symptoms?  No.  I am saying your body’s immune system is compromised if a vertrebral subluxation is present.  Dysfunction in the nerve system causes signs and symptoms to appear in your body.  Runny nose, irritated eyes, and sinus pressure can be very debilitating.  While you might think it is  “normal” that you always have these signs and symptoms, there has to be a CAUSE; a root to the problem.

Chiropractic has been helping individuals combat allergies symptoms for some time and will continue to do so.  The way chiropractors do this is by addressing and finding the CAUSE.  The cause is the vertebral subluxation that compromises optimal function.  Without proper function the immune system becomes compromised.  Allow your body to heal with proper communication via chiropractic.  Chiropractic adjustments do not cure or treat your signs and symptoms.  Chiropractic adjustments enable your body to adapt and allow your nerve system to be properly connected to your immune, GI, and all body systems.  Over 50 trillion cells in your body and these all need to make sure they are functioning to their correct ability.  This is accomplished by a healthy functioning nerve system.  Millions of people are suffering from allergies symptoms.  Restore proper communication to your body’s immune system and enjoy the natural wonders of our state worry free.  

A 2013 study1 reported that chiropractic adjustments were effective at increasing lung functioning, and some recent research2 shows that chiropractic care can help reduce the symptoms of asthma in some children.
