How do I know if I should be taking my child to see a Chiropractor?
Certainly chiropractic treatment can help with most back pain related conditions but subluxations of the spinal vertebrae can interfere with the nervous system and affect your child’s health in other ways.
Chiropractors have found that the following conditions can respond to chiropractic care:
- Poor posture
- Ear infections
- Neck aches
- Frequent colds
- Muscular dystrophy
- Poor concentration
- Hip, leg or foot pain
- Shoulder pain
The nervous system controls every tissue and organ in the body so it is not surprising that adjustments to the spinal column to correct imbalances and misalignments can have a positive effect on many conditions such as those listed above. Doctors of Chiropractic have a thorough training in nutrition and exercise, so in addition to their hands on care, advice may be given in these areas to help your child’s health. Chiropractic treatment is complimentary to traditional medical care but may very well reduce your need to see your family doctor for drugs or medications for your child.
Healthy children and adults can benefit from preventative check -ups at the chiropractors office in the same way that they benefit from dental check -ups for their teeth. Remember that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and because your spine is so important don’t wait until you have issues. Why not call your neighbourhood chiropractor today to schedule an examination for your family?
