Dr. Catherine Luib, D.C., L.Ac., a San Diego Holistic Health Specialist says, “Whether we have a large spine or a tiny little one, if that spine is negatively impacting the communication of the nervous system then our body is unable to regulate and coordinate itself with optimal functions.”
Chiropractic care is actually part of a healthy lifestyle that not only includes adults, but children as well. Of course, kids and babies have spines too. And, just like adults, any misalignments throughout their spines can affect the function of their nervous systems. Thankfully, chiropractic care is here to help.
Helps with the Brain
Amazingly, chiropractic has shown great benefits in improving neural plasticity for both adults and children alike. During the baby’s crucial time of growth, it would be a good thing to support the development of their nervous system as well. Why not have their brain and nervous system function the best it can possibly be?
Helps with the Immune System
Regular adjustments for kids and babies also have been shown to support the child’s overall health and well-being. With regard to their immunity, they become stronger and less prone to sickness. They have fewer incidents of getting a cold, cough, flu, fever or earache. Staying healthy and strong for preventative measures is the way to go.
Helps with Respiratory Challenges
With the rise of chemical toxins in the air, water, food and drugs, it is now more common to see more and more kids and babies with a myriad of asthma, allergies and other respiratory health challenges. What helps them to facilitate a healthy nerve function to their lungs is the chiropractic adjustment. Think of the spine and its nerves as a system of wires that carry electrical energy. How important it now becomes to get the connection regularly checked once we fully understand this concept.
Helps with Posture
How about for an infant who cannot keep their head up during their appropriate developmental stages? Or even for one that cannot sit up and has terrible posture? A correction to the spine and releasing any nerve interference throughout it is THE key.
Helps with Colic
Now have you ever experienced a baby or young infant keep crying and crying? Nothing seems to console them and help them to sleep. Just imagine how much of a nightmare that this can be for every parent or persons in that household! This is called “Irritable Baby Syndrome” or simply, “colic.” Well, guess what also helps? Yes, that is right – chiropractic! Get that baby or young infant’s spine checked and cleared of any subluxations. Before you know it, they are well into a deep and restful sleep. A victory for everyone.
Chiropractic for kids and babies can also help with bed-wetting, assisting with behavioral disorders and digestive problems. Just remember that the mother’s breast milk should be the choice of food. Unfortunately, if your baby is consuming on an infant formula, that might be the provoking factor. But constipation or diarrhea, it will be helped significantly with a spinal adjustment.
Chiropractic care is a relief for many health challenges. Simply correcting the spine and allowing the nervous system to be as strong as it can be addresses the root problem of most, if not all, health matters. The beautiful thing is that parents can also utilize chiropractic care for whole family care, even for the little ones. Because, again, kids and babies have spines too!
Get your children’s spines checked and cleared. Schedule their chiropractic appointment today and you will be so happy that you did.
