Children are invaluable assets to our families and future. Here at NT Chiropractic, we understand this fact and feel it is important for children to receive periodic and safe spinal adjustments in order to promote optimum, long-term and healthy growth.
Children are like trees growing on a hill forced to endure the elements. These trees will brave wind, rain, ice, snow and times of drought. Withstanding all these elements will cause the trees to go through a handful of growth challenges. Like these trees, children will face growth issues at the hands of accidents and the everyday wear and tear of their little schedules. But unlike trees, children have chiropractic care as an option to offset and challenge these issues.
Many naturally birthed children have already sustained damage to their neck muscles and ligaments due to the use of birthing instruments like forceps and vacuum cups. Chiropractic care can negate this damage and positively impact your child’s health.
It may sound surprising, but children can benefit from chiropractic care just like adults. The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association engaged in a study regarding the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic care for children. Initial results show chiropractic care is safe for children and shows evidence of progressing children’s health by promoting improved sleeping, improved behavior and attitude, and improved immune system function.
With children, spinal adjustments are administered with gentle, light pressure with no harsh thrusts. These adjustments are safe and stimulate bodily function and the nervous system, which also aids in improving immunity.
