Problems can begin as early as when the child is born. Birth
Trauma and stress from a difficult labor, use of forceps
or during a Caesarean section delivery can injure your baby’s
spine. This can cause a vertebral subluxation which restricts
your baby’s joint motion.
children begin to walk, they take hundreds of falls. In
the early years they are always falling off bikes, out of
trees, etc. All of these small traumas add up and eventually
start to affect the spine.
many of you have taken young children to have their teeth
or their eyes checked? Most of you probably have. Now how
many of you have taken your child to a chiropractor to have
his or her spine checked? If you never have, I wonder why
not? People will think nothing of having braces put on their
kid's teeth and spending thousands of dollars just so they
have straight teeth. But they will never have their spine
checked to see if it is straight.
research regarding the effect of chiropractic care on kids
is amazing. A 1989 study which compared 200 children who
had seen pediatricians with 200 children who had been under
chiropractic care showed that the health of the children
who had seen chiropractors was notably superior to that
of children brought up under standard medical care. The
chiropractic children, for example, had fewer ear infections,
allergies, and cases of tonsillitis, and therefore required
has been proven that adjusting the spine to relieve nerve
pressure has a direct effect on the immune system. It also
makes sense that a better functioning nervous system makes
for a better functioning body as a whole.
