Why All Children Should See a Chiropractor

It pains me to hear about, or see on Facebook, that a child is suffering from some sort of significant health problem.  It’s not uncommon for children to suffer a variety of health problems that rob the entire family of peace and serenity…..ear infections, colic, allergies, autism, ADHD, nightmares…. The list is endless.

As a purpose-driven chiropractor, it is my passion to teach as many people as possible the importance of every man, woman, and child, being under regular chiropractic care to improve quality of life, promote optimal health, and prevent dis-ease, or disease.

Let me boldly state that every child should be evaluated by a chiropractor who focuses his or her attention on the detection and gentle correction of subluxation.

Most of us receive our first spinal nerve damage just going through the birth process, or perhaps while still in the womb.  The amount of pulling or twisting on the neck is enough to do tremendous damage.  If a C-section was performed, the potential for damage may be even greater.  If the spinal cord was wrapped around the neck, that can lead to longterm health problems.

Stress (physical, mental, and chemical) is ultimately the cause of the majority, if not all of our health problems.  As long as our body’s ability to resist stress is higher than our stress levels, we remain healthy.   But the very minute that our stress levels are higher than our body’s ability to adapt, things begin to go down hill.

Sometimes the stressors can be huge and obvious, like a traumatic birth or a serious fall. Other stressors may be less obvious, like the significant number of drugs or vaccines that we subject children to, or the amount of sugar, refined foods, and synthetic chemicals in food and formula.  Many children suffer separation anxiety, or nightmares.

“Chiropractic doesn’t replace the need for medicine….unless chiropractic replaces the need for medicine.”

The purpose of chiropractic, whether one is days old, or decades old, is the same: to analyze the spine and nervous system for the effects of a stress level that has overwhelmed the body’s ability to adapt.  That’s called a subluxation.

The youngest child I have been priveleged to adjust was only 8 hours old.  Over the years I have had the honor of  caring for dozens, if not hundreds,  of infants and children.  Sometimes it’s because their parents understand the chiropractic purpose and just want to make sure that their child has every opportunity to express life at its fullest, and sometimes it’s because the child has a serious health problem such as recurrent ear infections, allergies, colic, scoliosis, or any other condition.

It’s important to recognize that chiropractic doesn’t replace the need for medicine, unless chiropractic replaces the need for medicine.  What I mean by that, is that chiropractic relies on the fact that the body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism; that the nervous system is the master system that controls and coordinates the function of every tissue cell in the body; that physical, emotional, and chemical traumas interfere with the body’s ability to heal and function optimally; and that the objective of the chiropractor is to locate and remove interference to the optimal expression of life, health, and vitality.

It is likely that a body and mind free of interference will be able to express life, health, and vitality at such a high level, that sickness disappears and medicine is not needed.

Children respond very quickly to chiropractic care – often much quicker than adults.  That only makes sense.  The longer a problem is present, the more damage can occur, and since most of us receive our first neurologic injury at birth, or shortly thereafter, the longer the injury is present and reduces the quality and quantity of impulses from the brain to the rest of the body, the longer it may take for the person to heal.  Stress does progressive damage.

So, parents, please seek out a chiropractor who focuses on adjusting people of every age, whose intention it is to gently and specifically correct damage to the spine and nervous system, to allow infants, children, teens, adults, and seniors, all the opportunity to express life, health, and vitality at a higher, more optimal level.  Your entire family’s quality of life is at stake!
