We get a few raised eyebrows when we tell people that chiropractic can help children too. It’s something most people have never considered. However, a growing percentage of the population is using chiropractic care from birth and throughout life for both health challenges and prevention.
Since the nervous system controls and coordinates everything in the body, including development and healing, shouldn’t we make sure that a child’s nervous system is working properly? Of course! The spine is the most common place in the body that can interfere with the nervous system, disrupting the amazing power that made the body. Chiropractic care is a powerful way for parents to help their child heal naturally, especially from chronic childhood illnesses that are being treated with potentially dangerous medications.
Evidence from chiropractic offices throughout the world shows that children can benefit from chiropractic care, even if they already have a health challenge. Think about all of the children with ear infections, colic, asthma, acid reflux, ADHD, developmental delay, migraines, torticollis, and other problems. If their spine is putting pressure on their nervous system and interfering with their body’s normal functioning, then chiropractic can help them!
No health challenges? No problem! Chiropractic is a great way to keep the body functioning at a high level to prevent problems from developing. Dr. Morgan Sheridan has been under chiropractic care since she was 6 days old! Chiropractic helped her grow up healthy and strong, and she feels it’s her mission to share it with the world.
