Going to the Chiropractor is Elementary

One of the happiest sounds is that of children playing and laughing. Nothing brings joy to our heart more than our children. They represent tomorrow. They are the future of our heritage.

Practicing good health habits with our kids helps ensure they will pay forward that same way of life to our grandchildren. Proper diet and exercise are key ingredients to living a healthy and productive life. It’s difficult enough to practice good nutrition, much less keeping them safe while playing. As a child, accidents are a normal part of growing up. Regardless of how tough our children are, these accidents can have a negative effect on their health many years down the road.

We all agree, children need physical activity. Their bodies demand it in order to grow healthy and strong. During those formative years, this inevitably leads to falls and crashes as they learn how to run, ride a bike, jump rope, skateboard or participate in other sports-related activities. Many times the problems caused from these mishaps don’t manifest until years later. Kids are resilient but not indestructible. Just like you, their little bodies need regular check-ups and spinal tune-ups to maintain normal joint function for proper growth. That’s why elementary school-aged kids should receive regular chiropractic care; by creating the healthy habit of incorporating chiropractic into their lifestyles, they can help optimize and maximize their wellness potential.

How Chiropractic Helps My Child’s Health

Accidents can cause joints to become restricted, creating a condition otherwise known as “joint dysfunctions” or “subluxations,” many times without you or your child even knowing it. Problems can show up years later in ways you never thought possible. When spinal joints are not moving correctly, normal nerve communication can be inhibited. Postural changes may occur. The immune system can suffer. Overall health can be affected. Physical performance can be less than optimum. Licensed doctors of chiropractic, such as those at The Joint Chiropractic, referred to as DCs, apply a gentle, targeted movement to the restricted joints to improve motion of the body’s spinal column and extremities, thereby enhancing nerve function. This highly controlled procedure is known as a chiropractic adjustment.

Making chiropractic care a part of your children’s regular wellness lifestyle makes so much sense. When you understand a few truths about how your body works, and how chiropractic care can help them be their best, it's honestly a no-brainer!

Good health is a natural state. Normal function creates good health. A properly functioning nervous system opens the central nervous system highway for your children to fully develop and perform at their peak. Their bodies are constantly changing. Every day, they get a little stronger or weaker. In order to get stronger, they need a clear connection in the nerves between the brain and the body. In order to have a clear brain-body connection and grow stronger each day, they need an optimally functioning spine free of subluxations. Doctors of Chiropractic specialize in maintaining optimal spinal and nervous system function so your child’s body can heal and recover normally. It’s that simple!
