Chiropractic care for children offers your family a solid foundation for wellness.

Throughout pregnancy, birth, and childhood, the chiropractic lifestyle offers choices and benefits for your greater health and well-being. The following articles will help you understand the importance of the chiropractic family wellness lifestyle. I personally was adjusted throughout all three of my pregnancies, and had successful natural deliveries. I have adjusted my children since birth and they are very healthy and vibrant children.

More and more parents are seeking chiropractic care for their children. Many spinal problems seen in adults began as early as birth. Even so called “natural” birthing methods can stress an infant’s spine and developing nerve system. The resulting irritation to the nerve system caused by spinal and cranial misalignment can be the cause of many newbornhealth complaints. Colic, breathing problems, nursing difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions and chronic infections can often be traced to nerve system stress.

As the infant grows, learning to hold up the head, sit, crawl and walk are all activities that affect spinal alignment and are important times to have a child checked by a Doctor of Chiropractic.

As children begin to participate in regular childhood activities like skating or riding a bike, small yet significant spinal misalignments (subluxations) may occur. If neglected, the injuries during this period of rapid growth may lead to more serious problems later in life. Subtle trauma throughout childhood will affect the future development of the spine leading to impaired nervous system function. Any interference to the vital nerve system will adversely affect the body’s ability to function at its best.

The nerve system controls and coordinates the function of all the systems in the body: circulatory, respiratory, digestive, hormonal, eliminative and immune system. Any aspect of health may be impaired by nerve interference. The chiropractic adjustment restores nerve system function allowing the body the ability to express a greater state of health and well-being.

The Doctor of Chiropractic will take a case history and perform a chiropractic exam to determine if spinal subluxations exist. Chiropractic adjusting procedures are modified to fit a child’s size, weight, and unique spinal condition. They are both gentle and specific to the child’s developing spinal structures. Most parents report that their children enjoy their chiropractic adjustments and look forward to subsequent visits. They also report that their children experience a greater level of health while under regular chiropractic care.

“I am so happy I discovered Dr. Katie and chiropractic care! I started getting regular adjustments for headaches and burning back pain related to stress from work. I quickly learned the numerous benefits of chiropractic care to maintain overall health and wellness. I continued to receive regular adjustments throughout two pregnancies and attribute smooth deliveries and decreased back pain to the care I received from Synergy. Currently my toddler and infant recieve regular adjustments as well. Chiropractic care has helped them with reflux, constipation and ear issues naturally.  As a parent, I feel reassured that I am exposing my children to a natural medicine vs. the standard drugs.” ~ Jennifer Trieval –  school teacher

“Chiropractic care continues to improve my life! I have significantly more range of motion in my neck and much, much less pain! There are stretches of time when I am pain free, and my dancing is better and easier too! Thank You Synergy Chiropractic!”~ Bonnie Reese – Nurse and Belly Dancer
