Many families consider chiropractic care for children a routine and common practice. Dr. Gerald W. Clum, of the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, states that “Many chiropractors and parents appreciate it as an important element of a healthy lifestyle and an orientation to wellness in general. With adults or children, if the chiropractor finds restricted motion or other imbalances when palpitating the spine or other joints, then a chiropractic adjustment is appropriate.”
Almost every nerve in the body travels through the spine. Misalignments in the spine can interfere with the nerve conduction to any part of the body. Misalignments of the spine are often found in children who suffer from chronic earaches. An impaired nerve supply can make their inner ear and eustachian tubes susceptible to fluid buildup or infection. Restoring proper nerve supply through chiropractic adjustment has been shown to improve these conditions.
The benefit of chiropractic adjustment continues through the growth cycles of childhood and adolescence. Regardless of their age, a nervous system free from impairments gives your child the opportunity to be their very best.
