It is all too often that I am adjusting a child and another nearby patient says to me “I had no idea that you can adjust children, why do they need chiropractic care?”. Well, in my opinion, all children should be adjusted! Many spinal problems that affect adults began as early as birth.  Even “natural” child birth places significant stress on the spinal column and developing nervous system. Theses stresses on the nervous system have often been traced to be directly related to common infantile disorders such as colic, nursing difficulties, chronic ear infections, sleep disturbances and allergic reactions. As the infant grows, learning to hold their head upright, sitting, crawling and walking, all pose an opportunity in spinal development where minor trauma may adversely affect spinal alignment and the nervous system.

As your children grow up, they learn new skills such as riding a bike, playing sports and interactive video games, all of which carry the possibility of causing mild spinal misalignments (subluxations). If neglected, the injuries during this period of rapid growth may lead to more serious problems later in life. Subtle trauma throughout childhood will affect the future development of the spine leading to impaired nervous system function. Because the nervous system controls and coordinates the function of all systems: circulatory, respiratory, digestive, hormonal and immune system; any aspect of health may be impaired by nerve interference.

Through a thorough case history and examination, chiropractors are able to determine if subluxations are present.  Chiropractic adjusting techniques are modified to fit your child’s size and weight. They are both gentle and specific to the child’s developing spinal structures. In fact, most parents tell me that their children look forward to their next visit and really enjoy the treatment! They also report that their children experience a greater level of health while under regular chiropractic care.

So, like I said at the beginning of this article, it is imperative to have all children checked for spinal misalignment. Many of you reading this article have experienced the power of chiropractic care, not just for pain relief, but for when you have been sick or run down, suffering from allergies or asthma. Give your children every advantage that you can to allow them to grow up as health and happy as possible.
