The chiropractic lifestyle offers choices and benefits for children to have health and well-being. It is never too late or too early to start care. Proper nervous system function is important to pregnant mothers along with good nutrition and exercise. Children can be checked right after birth because of the potential damaging effects of the birth process. Even the most natural births are somewhat traumatic to the infant and may have “hidden damage.”
Research has been done by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association on the safety and efficacy of Chiropractic adjustment for children and pregnant women. Studies show that many children who experience symptoms of colic, ear infections and asthma have spinal subluxations impairing their nervous system function. Lack of frontal lobe stimulation is an effect of ADD and ADHD. Chiropractic adjustments stimulate the brain to rewire and re-fire. Early detection and correction can prevent layers of damage from occurring in the child’s vital nervous system. Accumulated damage will have lifelong consequences.
