When I introduce myself as a pediatric and family chiropractor, I often get raised eyebrows in response. Most people then say: why do kids need chiropractic? Since this is such a popular topic, I thought I would post it here.
Kids need chiropractic starting from the moment of birth. A study done by Dr. Guttman MD showed that out of the 1000 babies studied, 80% had an upper neck misalignment! This statistic reflected babies born in the hospital, birthing center, or at home! Birth is a traumatic event, and even if it seemed all things went smooth, the stats show only 20% made it without a misalignment!
If pediatric misalignment are left there, it could lead to things like constipation, colic, sleep issues, and ear infections. As kids get older, we start to see symptoms like asthma, allergies, ADHD, Autism, knee pain, heel pain, headaches, and a depressed immune system.
The reason an misalignment can be a cause in all those conditions, is because chiropractic adjustments reset and help reorganize your nervous system. Your kid’s nervous system is in charge of every organ and cell in the body. A misalignment prevents the nervous system to function optimally, and until it is corrected, your child’s body cannot grow and develop normally! So it is of utmost importance to get your child checked by a pediatric and family chiropractor as soon as possible and maintain a wellness plan to ensure proper growth and development!
