First: can pediatric chiropractic care help my child? And secondly: how does it even work? Well you are not alone! Lots of moms, dads, and caregivers are looking for hope and answers, backed by science that will help them with all the stress and struggle our kids and families are confronted with.
Let’s look at why our kids are struggling in the first place.
Common Childhood Trauma Can Affect the Spine
Although, bumps, falls and wrestling matches are often what comes to mind with our kids when we think of physical stress, actual physical stressors start much earlier. Research shows that this starts often during the prenatal period or birth process.
In addition to physical stressors, our kids live in a busier, more complex generation than we did. Schedules are packed, social media is everywhere, and food quality isn’t what it used to be. Simply put, we have more coming from every direction, and all combined, it can be overwhelming!
The more stressors that build up, the harder it is for our bodies to adapt and overcome, leaving our kids’ nervous system to get stuck on the gas pedal.
How Chiropractic Benefits Children
Think of the spine as not just a collection of bones, muscles, and ligaments, but instead as an entire neurological “organ” that is the key communication highway between the brain and body. When the brain and body can communicate well, kids can adapt to their surroundings better. Adapting is a key word, and why Chiropractic is so helpful to kids.
Especially kids who struggle with:
- Sensory problems
- Hyperactivity (ADHD)
- Immunity struggles
- Sleep challenges
