How Kids Benefit From Chiropractic Care

By Sara Butler

Kids are pretty resilient. They seem to bounce back from injury pretty fast, but that doesn’t mean they can’t benefit from visiting the chiropractors at The Joint. There are many people who think chiropractic care is only suitable for adults – and that’s not true at all. Chiropractic care isn’t simply care when there’s something wrong, but care given when a person is perfectly healthy to help keep them that way. In fact, taking children to the chiropractor has many advantages, and here are a few!

It Strengthens the Immune System

Children are just walking Petri dishes. They are constantly exposed to illness – that’s all part of building a healthy immune system. But when a child is given regular chiropractic care, it actually helps to increase the effectiveness of their immune system.

The nervous system controls the immune system, so you can assume when one is functioning well, then the other is, too. With chiropractic care, the body is free from joint dysfunction and restriction, which means the nervous system can function as it should. When the whole body can communicate freely, then the body responds to germs swiftly. According to the American Chiropractic Association, chiropractic care has been shown to reduce recovery time and decrease symptoms of illness in children.

Keep Them Injury-Free

Children play, which means they run, jump, and fall on a nearly constant basis. When they are given regular chiropractic care, it helps to build their strength and keep their bodies free from joint restriction and dysfunction. That means they have less of a chance of developing pain and discomfort from an ongoing problem in the future. It helps to think about a child as a tree: When a tree is strong and undamaged, then it can grow up tall and strong – just like a child.

It’s Proactive

The result of chiropractic care for a child is providing them care that is proactive. It’s not just addressing problems as they arise since, by the time symptoms develop, the child has likely been having the problem for quite some time. When a child receives regular chiropractic adjustments, it treats a problem that may be developing – that’s why it’s proactive health care for your child.

The bottom line is that chiropractic care is healthy for children of all ages, so don’t be afraid to bring your child with you to The Joint for regular chiropractic care!
