Why Chiropractic for Children Matters

Why Chiropractic for Children Matters
I am often times asked by parents or any adults in general, why does my child need to be adjusted? The irony being that they are often chiropractic patients themselves who love their adjustments. The answer is because they also have a spine, and nervous system, and there can be problems that the child doesn’t have the ability to tell you about.
Have you ever paid attention to how often a toddler learning to walk falls down? Constantly.
 Kids are resilient, but through their various wild and reckless activities they can easily throw themselves out of alignment. And all of this at a crucial time in their lives where they are growing and developing.
Some children develop in the womb in atypical or odd positions, causing the child to adapt to this position causing potential early life spinal problems. Some children face more difficult problems.
In a study published by the Journal of Surgical Orthopaedic Advances they studied the efficiency of chiropractic treatment for children. Scoliosis, Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease, developmental dysplasia of the hip, cerebral palsy, skeletal dysplasia, and slipped capital femoral epiphysis were a some of the diagnosis for the 23 children in the study. The children received multiple sessions of chiropractic care for their conditions. In every case the parents of the children reported positive outcomes associated with chiropractic treatment.
Colic or excessive crying from infants is another issue that plagues many new parents. Chiropractic has been shown to help. A study on infant colic in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics showed that chiropractic care decreased crying time in infants with colic. So parents get you child adjusted and get some well deserved sleep.
