Chiropractic Austin TX Kids And Chiropractic Care

Over the years, we have received feedback at our chiropractic clinic in Austin TX about the tremendous benefits to kids receiving chiropractic from parents and young patients. They report great improvement, and often complete resolution of problems with ear infections, colic, ability to nurse productively, better sleep, behavior, attitude, focus, concentration, and overall immune function.

But those benefits are only seen if you get the adjustment.

Misalignment Is Not Just For Grown-Ups

Remember the adage: as the twig is bent, so grows the tree. The vast majority of my adults have problems that started as a child and worsened slowly over the years. According to Dr. Godfrey Gutmann, over 80% of newborns have suffered trauma to their cervical spine resulting in subluxations (misalignments) of their spine. This can result in a wide variety of health problems including colic, irritable baby, hyperactivity, bedwetting, scoliosis, respiratory difficulties, digestive problems, frequent colds, ear infections, headaches, fatigue, depression, and more. The list goes on and on because the nervous system controls everything in your child’s body.

Should You Have Your Child Checked If They Aren’t Showing A Symptom Or Illness?

Absolutely! We don’t check and adjust children only because something is wrong, but also to ensure that everything is right. Chiropractic care is an essential part of your child’s overall wellness. In the United States, more than 17 percent of all chiropractic patients are under the age of 18, according to the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners. Of that 17 percent, nearly 8 percent are five years or younger. While it may seem that children do not need chiropractic at a young age, preventative care early on in life can set them up for a lifetime of health and well-being.

Your Child’s Nervous System

The nervous system, which consists of your brain, spinal cord, and nerves, controls everything in the body, including growth and development. Subluxations, also known as misalignments, in the spine, can prevent proper communication from the brain to the body. These subluxations cause stress to the nervous system, which can lead to a decrease in the function of the affected area.

Infants, children, and adults can all experience subluxations in the spine. Infants and children can become subluxated from birth trauma, other minor or major traumas, and developmental stress. During the first five years of life, the body produces more neural pathways than at any other time. It is vital this production is optimized through children’s chiropractic care, as the first few years are crucial to each child’s potential.

Even if your child is in excellent health, minor traumas from bumps, bruises, falls, and spills accumulate over time and can result in pain, discomfort, and/or health issues in their teen and adult years. Help your child develop a life habit to see a Chiropractor as part of their investment in great health and a strong foundation.

The Adjustment

The chiropractic adjustment is safe for patients of all ages, including newborns. After an assessment of your child’s spine, we perform a gentle adjustment using either hands or a small instrument. This adjustment removes the subluxation, allowing for normal nerve flow and improved health and vitality.
