Pediatric chiropractic care offers your family a solid foundation for wellness. Chiropractic is 100% safe!
Adjustments are gentle and tailored to fit the patient’s age, size, and needs. Throughout pregnancy, birth, and childhood, chiropractic will help your family live a life of optimal health.
The very first spinal misalignment (vertebral subluxation) in a persons life often occurs during the birthing process. Do you realize that almost half of all births in the country are now planned–often done out of convenience. When the baby is schedule they are interventions often needed to be extracted–and that requires a certain amount of force. The force that is applied to the head and neck to pull and turn the baby in order to get the shoulders through the birthing canal puts stress on the upper cervical spine (especially Atlas-C1) and nervous system – the baby enters the world seemingly healthy but with his/her first subluxation.
This is why Dr. Brown checks newborns as early as possible after birth (even less than hours old) for vertebral subluxation. Often times, moms will stop by our office on the way home from the hospital to have their newborn checked. We take the honor of caring for infants and newborns very seriously.
Proper spinal alignment is vital to have the best communication of your newborns/infants brain and body though their nervous system. Would it not make sense to get your newborn/infant checked for subluxations as soon as possible?
Kids are resilient. But, all too often adults are guilty of downplaying or underestimating the stress they undergo. Most of the time we just shrug this off as: “Oh they will be OK, just kids”, “good thing they have a young body”, “what doesn’t kill you will make you stronger”. The reality is that the number of traumas to a child’s body and especially the spine & nervous system add up.
What kind of things could be causing stress on your child’s spine & nervous system:
- contact sports or sports-related injuries
- heavy backpacks
- poor posture
- improper sleeping
- poor diet
- emotional stress
- much more
We all know that the stresses in our life add up. Even though children often bounce right up after falls or accidents, that stress makes a change. That change could cause multiple problems down the road. Pediatric chiropractic care helps to keep those stresses from becoming a problem now or in the future.
