Kids and Chiropractic
A proper functioning nervous system is important for the development and function of the body. Unfortunately, interventions during what could be a natural childbirth are too common and can damage the fragile spine and therefore, the fragile nervous system of a newborn. Other life events such as falls, accidents, learning to walk, playing sports (just to name a few) can cause stress upon a child’s nervous system. Symptoms of nervous system stress may show up right away, such as colic or may show up in years in the form of chronic illness or allergies. Although chiropractors work directly on misalignments in the spine and don’t treat specific conditions, parents with children under chiropractic care have reported improvements in ear infections, bed wetting, colic, allergies and more!
Pediatric chiropractors use gentle and safe techniques ( ICPA )when adjusting an infant or child’s spine.
For more information and the latest research on these topics visit the ICPA research website.
