Chiropractic treatments can be extremely beneficial for your child’s health, growth and development. This is not only because growth spurts can affect spine alignment and pressure points. Research has shown that regular chiropractic checkups and treatments can actually help your child sleep better; fight off colds, ear infections, and other ailments; and generally improve their temperament and behavioral patterns.
This is because natural hormones and chemical signals from the brain can reach various areas of the body unhindered, allowing children to mature both physically and mentally through every stage of development.
Absolutely! Highly trained chiropractors (like Dr. Derrick Benner) know how to adjust their chiropractic techniques and treatments to suit their tiniest patients. In fact, children’s developing skeletal structures are still young and growing. This makes them more elastic and easy for chiropractors to do the necessary adjustments to the spine with very little pressure compared to adult patients. Also, treatments are drug free and non-invasive unlike going to most general health doctors and clinics.
More and more parents are turning to chiropractors as a source of preventative health care and treatment for their children. It’s proven to be safe and effective for children of all ages and promises better development so that kids can grow to reach their full potential.
