We Are Excited to Help
Most people are unaware that chiropractic is not just for back pain and headaches. We take care of little spines too!
But because people are unaware, there are plenty of questions that are asked:
Is it safe to adjust kids? Chiropractic has been proven safe for children and has been shown to be very beneficial! Chiropractic’s goal is to re-connect the brain with the body through the nervous system. Frequently kids have minor traumas that can create mis-alignments throughout their spine causing interference of the nervous system, some of the mis-alignments can even be traced back to birth or before. Using very gentle pressure, we are able to correct the spine and allow 100% flow of life back into your child!
If my child doesn’t have back pain, then why should they get adjusted? As stated before, our goal is not just about pain, but to allow your body to reach its highest potential. Frequently patients will visit our office experience pain in certain areas of their body, but these patients also understand that when the spine becomes subluxated, nervous system dysfunction begins and can manifest as pain. By correcting the subluxation, the body is able to function properly, and a side effect is frequently decreased pain.
From even before birth until early adulthood, our children’s brains and nervous systems are growing and developing at an alarming speed which will set them up for the remainder of their life. Our current generation of children has more physical, chemical, and emotional stressors than any generation before them. These external stressors can cause injury to the nervous system and at this point cause cause major delays in development and hinder their expression of life for years. At Specialized Health Chiropractic, we believe that every child deserves the opportunity to thrive.
Does the Adjustment hurt? Due to a newborn’s immature musculature and skeletal systems, the adjustment is performed vastly different from an adult’s adjustment. A child’s nervous system is more sensitive than that of an adult, and both of our doctors are trained in gentle, neurologically specific adjusting techniques that are tailored to your child’s individual needs.
Dr. Bryce and Dr. Taylor are excited to get you and your family on the path to greater health at our Adel Pediatric Chiropractic Office.
