How do children benefit from chiropractic care? The answer is simple. The same way you and I do: with an interference free system! This will give their body the best chance at growing and developing to their full potential. The nervous system is the FIRST thing to develop when sperm and egg meet–it’s that important! It runs everything in our bodies and controls development from conception throughout an entire life. It controls all of our other body systems as well, including the circulatory system, the digestive system, the reproductive system…the list goes on and on!
It is critical that in the early stages of development that all children perceive the world clear of interference which lays down the foundation for the developing nervous system. The most common form of nerve system interference occurs when one of the bones of the spine, pelvis or cranium misalign creating swelling and pressure on the delicate nerves as they exit between these bones that surround them. This misalignment is called a subluxation.
So, when does the first subluxation occur? Pulling, forcing, and twisting the baby from the birth canal are all too common in births. Even in a natural, gentle entrance into the world, the journey down the birth canal puts enough strain on the body to cause a subluxation. Interference may show up immediately in symptoms of colic, colds, visual tracking problems, ear infections, asthma, bed-wetting, allergies, and so on. They may show up months later, or it may take years. It does not matter how much time it takes for symptoms to appear; there may have always been interference…you just didn’t know it!
Subluxations that occur at birth cause interference in the system from the moment of the baby’s first breath–think of all the development that still needs to take place from birth throughout life! That is why it is crucial to get your child’s spine checked as early in life as possible. Symptoms are the last thing to be expressed, telling us that there is and has been underlying interference in the body. The chiropractor is not treating these symptoms but is instead reducing nerve system stress which allows the body’s natural healing potential to function at its best.
