Chiropractic for ChildrenLearn How Chiropractic Can Positively Impact Your Childrens' Health
Chiropractic’s purpose is to remove interference to the natural healing power running through the body. When that power is unleashed the healing that results may be profound. We find more parents bringing their children to chiropractors for day-to-day health concerns we’re all familiar with: colds, sore throats, ear infections, fevers, colic, asthma, tonsillitis, allergies, bed-wetting, infections, pains, falls, stomach-aches, and the hundred and one little and big things children go through as they grow up.
Chiropractors Treat The Spine Not Treat Disease
It’s most important to understand that chiropractic is not a treatment for disease. It’s purpose is to reduce spinal nerve stress, a serious and often painless condition most children (and adults) have in their bodies. Spinal nerve stress interferes with the proper functioning of the nervous system, can weaken internal organs and organ systems, lower resistance, reduce healing potential and set the stage for sickness and disorders of all kinds.
When a chiropractor frees the nervous system from spinal stress, the healing power of the body is unleashed: the immune system functions more efficiently, resistance to disease increases, and your child’s body functions more efficiently. Your child can respond to internal and external environmental stresses such as germs, changes in temperature, humidity, toxins, pollen and all the other stresses he/she comes in contact with more efficiently.
So although children with diseases are often brought to the chiropractor, the chiropractor is not treating their diseases but is instead freeing them of spinal nerve stress, thus permitting their body’s natural healing potential to function at its best.
What Exactly Is Nerve Stress?
Spinal nerve stress (also referred to as vertebral subluxations, the subluxation complex, or “pinched nerves”) is a misalignment or distortion of the spinal column, skull, hips, and related tissues (the structural system) that irritate, stretch, impinge or otherwise interfere with the proper function of the nervous system (brain, spinal cord, spinal nerves and outlying or peripheral nerves). Since the nervous system controls the function of the body, any interference to it can have wide-ranging effects.
Some of the most common reasons families seek chiropractic care for their children are:
- ACID REFLUX (GERD)
- BED WETTING
- BREAST FEEDING DIFFICULTIES
- EAR INFECTION
My girls love getting adjusted. Our oldest had a small curve and correcting it with Dr. Tim Ciolkosz was the healthiest and safest course of action. We are thrilled and continue to come for optimal health.
Our daughter Gretchen is always in great health. She never misses school for any illness and recovers quickly from the common cold. She started care as a baby with Dr. Tim Ciolkosz. We are grateful for Spinal Health & Wellness and will continue to practice preventive healthcare.
We came in when we noticed our little girl’s head was tilting to her left side. After a few short months of care she is in alignment and doing great!
