What are the benefits of chiropractic care for children & infants?
The nervous system in children is linked to how healthy and they are in general and how healthy they grow overall. The nervous system which consists of the brain, spinal cord and nerves influences everything in our little one’s bodies from how fast they grow to how well-developed they end up. Babies and children’s bodies rely on the overall health of their nervous system as they grow and develop. When the spine and nervous system are kept healthy, it allows them to send strong signals to and from the brain to the body, which then reacts to these signals and then grows and maintains the body in perfect health, which is vital in the early stages of childhood. The first five years of life, are the most vital for the production of neural pathways that create all the connections between the various functions of the body, so this is when it is most important to start taking an active role in keeping these pathways clear and healthy with chiropractic care.
What Is Pediatric Chiropractic Care Used For?
Alternative medicine and treatments are not new anymore especially as we realize it is important to take a more active role in our health and wellness. At Trinity Chiropractic we have noticed an increased demand for our Pediatric Chiropractic care over the recent years. This is because of its ability to improve sleep, reduce migraines, help accelerate healing with injuries, and any quite a few other conditions including chronic ones like asthma and allergies. The main reason it appeals to so many parents is that takes medications and all their adverse effects out of the picture and this allows parents to feel more at ease with the fact that they do not have to deal with any long term side effects like they would with medications and invasive surgical procedures.
So here are some specific benefits of Pediatric Chiropractic Care
- Better Sleep
Getting children to sleep better and longer is something that all parents are concerned with at some point. Pediatric chiropractic care for children improves how well and how long they sleep. Spinal adjustment helps children feel more relaxed and that in turn leads to better quality of sleep that lasts through the entire night. When your children get a better night sleep, they wake up more alert and in a better mood. They will also focus better and have fewer incidents of unruly behavior because they will be functioning at their peak.
- Sports Injuries
Children who are active in sports are prone to having injuries, like sports that involve physical contact with opponents that leave your child with bumps and bruises like continuously sliding into home base or getting tackled by an opponent. These injuries start of as minor but will cause long-term damage if not addressed early and properly. The injuries and pain involved may go away after a day or two, but the long-term effects show up later in life. Getting early regular pediatric chiropractic care, will reduce if not eliminate the chance of long-term effects of these injuries. Pediatric chiropractic care is a part of a holistic approach to your child’s long-term wellness especially if they participate in sports. Your Chiropractor can also provide tools and techniques that will help avoid some sports related injuries.
- Headache & Migraine Relief
Migraines and headaches are hard to deal with at any age. When your child has any kind of pain, you want to get them some relief and if you are looking for natural remedies and alternative therapies to avoid the continued use of medication, Pediatric Chiropractic care is a great solution for chronic headaches and migraines. These headaches affect every part of their day, from having missed days from school to not being able to participate in regular childhood activities. Your Chiropractor can help with this since most headaches are caused by tension in the back, neck, or spine. Schedule regular chiropractic adjustments to relieve this tension and you will soon find that the headaches will go away. Adjustments allow the body to relax which helps avoid getting the headaches.
- Digestive Problems
Digestive issues of one kind or another are common in children and the causes vary from overeating, eating too much junk food, eating something that makes them feel sick, or just unexplained abdominal pain. These issues point back to the nervous system and its connection to the bodies main organs that communicate with the rest of the body. Inflammations in the spine creates blockages that interfere with the body's ability to properly digest food and this can be the root cause of your child’s stomachache. Misalignment that are causing digestion issues are relieved fast with regular visits to your chiropractor.
