Children & Chiropractic
There is no patient to young. Newborn babies endure unparalleled amounts of physical stress during the birthing process. Studies have found that 95% of newborns have subluxations in their neck. Removing these subluxations may prevent the development of several types of disease including infantile colic, bed wetting, allergies, and asthma. Chiropractic may also help reduce ear infections, strep, and growing pains.
Studies done by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, which Dr. Beckley is proud member, has initiated ground breaking studies on the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic care for children. Chiropractic care has been shown to improve:
- Behavior and attitude
- Immune system function
- Brain development
A child’s body undergoes a lot of trauma. As toddlers, they are starting to learn how to move about in the world. Children are constantly in a state of play and discovery. Chiropractic care can have a great effect on your child’s neural brain development. It does this by releasing pressure on bones and joints, as well as the spine. Increased brain development promotes better concentration. It can improve focus and reduce hyperactivity. This includes targeting conditions such as ADHD/ADD.
Chiropractic care works well for children because their bodies are still growing. The alignment of the spine is very important for proper development. Pediatric chiropractic care has serious health benefits for your child. It can affect their well being and development as a person in so many positive ways.
