When you think about a chiropractor, you likely think about someone who can treat an adult after they suffer injuries in an accident. While this is one thing that a chiropractor does, there are many other reasons to seek chiropractic care from Skyline Chiropractic. We have a pediatric chiropractor in our office, which can be very beneficial. There are a number of ways that chiropractic care for children can improve their overall health and well-being.
From the time they are born until they are between 16 and 18-years-old, your child is growing. If your child's spine is misaligned, it can put increased pressure on the muscles and bones while they grow, which can result in growing pains. Regular spinal adjustments will help your child grow the way that they are supposed to.
Stronger Immune System
Your child has an immature immune system, which is why they often come home from school with one illness or another. Regular chiropractic care can help strengthen your child's immune system, helping them to get sick less often.
Help With Sickness
If your child has an earache or a sinus infection, a spinal adjustment can help the fluid in the ears to drain. This will help your child feel better, sooner. Also, since an adjustment can boost your child's immune system, they will feel better faster.
Children Are Active
Kids are very active. They run around, they jump, and they often fall down. This kind of activity can result in a misaligned spine. With regular chiropractic adjustment, your child can use their body to their full potential. It will also help all of their body systems to function correctly.
A Good Night's Sleep
If your child isn't getting enough sleep, a chiropractic adjustment can help. When their body is aligned correctly, they won't have any pain that will keep them awake. Also, a spinal adjustment can relax the nervous system, helping your child sleep through the night.
When your child's spine is misaligned, it puts excess tension on their nervous system. This can result in trouble concentrating and other behavior problems. A spinal adjustment can release the tension, helping your child with these issues.
If your child gets constipated frequently, regular spinal adjustments can help. A chiropractic adjustment can reduce the stress on the nerves in the intestine that are responsible for helping your child go to the bathroom. When there is no tension, constipation will no longer be an issue.
