More and more children have appointments to see a chiropractor. Chiropractors evaluate and fix misalignments in our spine that cause nerve distress. Whether or not our spine is big or little, if it is creating nerve distress then our bodies may not operate smoothly.
When we appreciate how important the nervous system is and how easily it can be hindered and impaired it makes sense that more parents are having their child’s spine and nervous system assessed.
10 reasons parents take their children to see a chiropractor:
To maximize neural plasticity (brain and nerve development).
To enhance overall health and wellbeing.
To strengthen immunity and reduce the incidence of colds, ear-aches and general illness.
To help with colic and irritable baby syndrome.
To help with asthma, breathing difficulties and allergies.
To improve spinal posture.
To improve the ability to concentrate.
To assist with behavioural disorders and enhance emotional wellbeing.
To help alleviate digestive problems.
To assist with bed-wetting and sleep issues.
