From Babies to Teens, Choose Chiropractic Care
By Donna Kostiew
I often observe that many people will find it easy to make recommendations to friends, yet won’t heed their own advice. This usually occurs with suggestions on diets, money, and even healthcare. For example, if we had a friend in pain, we wouldn’t think twice to recommend a chiropractor to them, right? So shouldn’t we do the same for our children?
I will let you in on a little secret … just like adults, children have spines and a nervous system too! So it would make sense for us to make sure that they are receiving the best healthcare possible, especially during their developmental years, and that is where chiropractic care steps in. Although a child would be seeing a chiropractor for different reasons than their parents would, the basic belief for chiropractic care is the same, as well as the care they would receive at The Joint Chiropractic.
The Same, Yet Different
Many common childhood health issues have been linked to the spine and can begin as early as birth. Some of these are:
- Ear infections, colds, and sore throats
- Nursing difficulties
- Sleep disturbances
Chiropractic care offers many benefits for your child’s greater health and well-being through all the stages of growth, beginning as soon as they are born. From spinal trauma at birth, to imbalances during the toddler stage, to injuries in their teens, chiropractic care covers it all and is both gentle and specific to the child’s developing spinal structures. Most importantly though, it is safe, effective, and easy to implement into your child’s life. Chiropractic care does not involve the use of prescription medication or invasive surgeries, so there aren’t any additional risks to their health.
Chiropractic Care and its Impact on Children
Regular chiropractic checkups can identify and correct any joint restrictions that may be causing your baby, toddler, or young child any problems. Here are some of the benefits your child will receive from getting regular adjustments.
- Optimal function of the nervous, digestive, and immune systems
- Improved growth and development; fewer injuries
- Optimal nerve and brain development
- Improved overall health
- Prevention of health issues that could arise later on in life during adulthood
- Avoidance of prescribed medications and invasive treatments
By being proactive with chiropractic care when they are young, and making other positive lifestyle choices, your child will start their life on a solid foundation of wellness. So consider bringing your child in to see a chiropractor regularly for optimal health. Heck, bring the whole family in and share the amazing benefits it has to offer because, with over 400 locations nationwide, The Joint Chiropractic is easy to find.
They’re also easy on kids and babies, who are treated differently than adults.
