Chiropractic Care for Children – AcuHealth Chiropractic Columbus Ohio
Chiropractors are experts in the care of the bones, nerves, muscles and connective tissues that make up about 60% of your body. All of the joints in your body are part of this musculo-skeletal system and its optimal function is necessary for overall good health.
The birth process may be one of the most traumatic events of our lives. Even the “natural” birthing methods can stress a developing spine. The resulting irritation to babies nervous system can be the cause of many newborn health complaints. Colic, unexplained crying, poor appetite, breathing problems and allergic reactions can often be traced to nervous system dysfunction caused by a malfunctioning spine.
Bumps and falls during the early months of rapid growth may lead to serious spinal deformities later in life. Lack of proper care for the musculo-skeletal system at this stage may lead to serious spinal deformities later in life. This can set the stage for scoliosis, “growing pains”, and a weakened immune system.
Chiropractic adjusting techniques are modified to fit a child’s size, weight, and unique spinal problem. Parents often report that their children seem healthier than other children their age that did not receive chiropractic care.
Remember contact sports and repeated one-sided activities can interfere with proper growth during rapid stages of spinal development. Chiropractic checkups can prevent lifelong issues.
