Creating Healthy Families Begins With Kids

All family members are important to us, but we have a special place in our hearts for children and their special needs. Babies and toddlers can’t always tell us when they’re in pain or suffering, so we place a high value on getting kids into the office right from the time they’re born. Research is demonstrating that a chiropractic checkup of the spine immediately after delivery helps to ensure a healthy spine and nervous system. The birth process alone is very stressful, and misalignments associated with birth trauma can contribute to many of the following conditions:

  • Reinshagen-Chiropractic-04Acid Reflux
  • Asthma
  • Bed-wetting
  • Colic
  • Ear infections
  • Failure to thrive
  • Feeding difficulties
  • Hyperactivity
  • Seizures
  • Sensory disorders

Protecting Our Children From Harm

We love children, and just like their parents, want to protect them from harm. It’s always our goal to help parents understand how stressors in our world today can affect a child’s growth and development. Some of these adverse conditions include things that we all take for granted as being ordinary:

  • Toxins (antibiotics, vaccines, toxic diet, toxic air)
  • Trauma (birth trauma, bumps, bruises, scrapes, concussions and broken bones)
  • Thoughts (emotional stress, busy lifestyle, tech overload and lack of exercise)

We believe it’s important that children be checked at every stage of their lives to ensure proper nervous system development and optimal function.

Helping a Twin Thrive

Two of our favorite patients were four-week-old twin girls. Their mother brought them in, and we couldn’t help but notice that one had a healthy moon face, bright eyes and that certain baby chubbiness. The other little girl was very thin, with bags under her eyes and one eye badly drooping. We could easily tell them apart. The two were each given an adjustment on a Thursday. When their mom brought them back in again the following Monday, the difference was astounding. Our office staff couldn’t tell them apart, and neither could the parents. The twin who was thin had gained several ounces, the dark circles under her eyes were gone, and her sagging eye had corrected itself. This transformation was the result of just one adjustment!

Adjusting Children Gently

Children respond rapidly and often dramatically to chiropractic care. The reason? Their bodies and nervous systems haven’t had a chance to develop years of chronic misalignment patterns, so their response is often immediate and satisfying. Babies and kids are adjusted differently than adults. Most children under the age of 7 are treated by using a handheld adjusting instrument called an Activator™. This instrument delivers a very precise but gentle correction to the spine. We also use another instrument called the ArthroStim®, which is soothing as it delivers a tapping sensation on the problem area. A speeder board is also sometimes used, which is a compact drop piece placed under the head or pelvis of the child, making the adjustment very comfortable and light. Chiropractic care has proven to be safe and effective in guarding the health and well-being of all children. We appreciate the confidence bestowed upon us by so many loving parents. Contact us today! We’d love to include you in our growing chiropractic family.
