Chiropractor For Kids

Chiropractor for kids? Why? His back doesn’t hurt. Most parents that understand and greatly appreciate the importance of checkups for their child’s teeth, hearing, vision, nose, and throat tend to draw a blank when it comes to the spine and structural system of their child.

Now a chiropractic checkup could potentially be one of the most important checkups of your child’s life! You ask Why? Well, jumping, falling, running, and bumping your child’s body is a normal childhood that can cause subluxations that can have serious health consequences if uncorrected. Now in addition to that, the birth process puts a lot of stress on the newborn’s spine and that could potentially bring about many health problems.

Doctors of chiropractic have reported for over a century of dramatic responses of infants and children to chiropractic care are often pursued after there was no effect from drugs or surgery.

Parents are bringing in their children to chiropractors for regular checkups more and more to this day. Without chiropractic care there are some children who will live in continued illness, condemned to a life of medications and maybe even perhaps even with surgery. With a healthy structural system, a child can better handle sore throats, ear infections, stomachaches, fevers, measles, mumps, and the hundred and one other problems that usually make up young life.

Chiropractic could help with these common childhood ailments:

Back & Neck Pain
Injuries from Falling & Active Play
Growing Pains
Immune System Function
Behavior & Attitude
Ear Infections
And More


Emotionally Healthy Children

It has been frequent that clinics and parents have seen drastic improvements in the physical, neurological, and emotional health of children after they have had chiropractic care. This does include children with learning disabilities, anxiety, concentration and attention problems, hyperactivity, attention deficit disorder (ADD), dyslexia, discipline problems, low IQ, and low grades.

Millions of schools in the United States, many have suffered from a learning impairment, chiropractic holds promise as a non-drug alternative. Learning disabilities and other similar problems in children often need chiropractic care checkups.


Ear Infections

Over two-thirds of all children have had one or more ear infections by the age of three. There are numerous problems with antibiotic usage for children with ear infections such as allergic reactions, GI upset, antibiotic resistance and destruction of the gut’s intestinal flora leading to yeast proliferation. Tubes in the ears are mostly antibiotic/medical failures with infections returning within two months and the tubes can cause hearing loss years later.

Children with ear infections need chiropractic adjustments. Most cases after chiropractic care the ear infections have been observed to disappear, saving children from ear-tube surgery and antibiotics.
