Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy, birth, and childhood offer a solid foundation for health and wellness. At Tobin Family Chiropractic we believe in starting good habits early in life. A child’s spine is often subjected to repeated injuries; falls, sports injuries, and even the birthing process itself can cause spinal misalignments. These slight misalignments may not cause problems right away, however if left untreated, can be the cause of pain and other health conditions later in life.
In today’s digital world we are seeing spinal misalignments in children like never before. Texting, using computers, and video games are causing spinal and postural abnormalities that were rarely seen in children until recently. This is why it’s important to have your child’s spine checked regularly for spinal misalignments or imbalances.
Today, more parents are seeking chiropractic care for day –to - day childhood conditions. Some of the most common reasons parents seek out chiropractors include:
Infants to young children
- Ear Infections
- Bed Wetting
- Respiratory Infections
Young children to teenagers
- Scoliosis & Poor Posture
- Back pain
It is important to note that chiropractic is not a treatment for disease. Our purpose is to remove the interference in the nervous system that impedes the body’s natural healing abilities. Subluxations cause spinal nerve stress, which can weaken internal organ systems, lower immunity, and reduce healing potential. Chiropractors remove this spinal nerve stress and your child’s body functions more efficiently so that it can fight off germs, toxins, and other stresses it comes in contact with.
Chiropractic adjustments are a safe and non-invasive treatment for children. Because a child’s skeletal system is still developing and very elastic, a light pressure is often all that is needed to correct misalignments. In addition, regular check-ups at the chiropractor’s office will teach children to take a proactive approach to their health.
