Did you know that the first subluxation (spinal misalignment) can occur during the birthing process? As kids grow up they have tendencies to fall and hit their heads through every stage of growth and development? Yes, kids get chiropractic adjustments too! Chiropractic care for kids is very common at ACT Wellness Center. In fact, 20% of our patients are kids and infants. Our youngest patient was 20 hours old!
Think about it! How often and how many times does an infant, child, or adolescent fall, get bumped, injure themselves or hit their head through the early years. Unfortunately if the child bruises from a bump, injury or trauma and it goes away, the assumption is that the problem from the injury was resolved. This isn’t an accurate presumption. The reality is…very often the initial injury can cause misalignment in the child’s spine. Sight unseen, there aren’t any obvious adversities. Sadly, the damage has already been done. These subluxations can exist for months or even years before the abnormal nerve system issues and structural imbalance begin to show up. Supporting studies can be found on the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association Website.
Many of our patients, who are parents, are well-informed about the likelihood of subluxations during childhood development. In fact, quite often they have their new-born checked. Our chiropractic families at ACT Wellness Center typically continue to have their kids checked regularly for subluxations. This assures that nervous system interference is not present as their children grow and develop.
Chiropractic wellness is a family affair. We have two, three and four generations of families that come in together. It is truly an amazing thing to see. Regrettably other parents, who haven’t been informed about the benefits of chiropractic never have chance to pass on chiropractic wellness to their children.
Chiropractic care is a drug-less, natural and preventative approach that is most appropriate for infants, kids and teens.
