Why every child should see a pediatric chiropractor
Children deserve to enter the world as healthy as possible. While we support a natural approach to birth whenever possible, we acknowledge the effects trauma can have on both baby and mom during the labor and delivery process, particularly when medical interventions such as vacuum extraction, episiotomy, caesarean sections and other surgical procedures are employed however, just being born can be a traumatic experience in itself. In the current healthcare economy, birth trauma is frequently ignored, overlooked and in many cases misdiagnosed.
Pediatric chiropractors are specially and extensively trained to detect signs of both macro- and micro-trauma and their noxious, detrimental and deleterious effects on a child's developing nervous system. When minute misalignments known as vertebral subluxations put pressure, stress or torque on nerves or the spinal cord, pediatric chiropractors gently restore proper alignment thereby removing insult to the nervous system and restoring proper function.
In many cases, parents have reported resolution of symptoms associated with infantile colic, constipation, sleeping issues, chronic ear infections, bed-wetting, torticollis, scoliosis, acid-reflux, asthma and even ADHD and neurosensory issues.
The effects of an adjustment on an infant, toddler or school-aged child can be profound because it eliminates not just the symptom of many common ailments, but the central cause therefore restoring the bodies ability to fully function as it was designed to do! Scheduling a consultation and adjustment is the first step to life-long healing.
