As a female chiropractor with 4 children, I understand the stress and importance of your child's health care. I have raised my 4 children using natural health care including conservative chiropractic care. As an experienced chiropractor in practice since 1993, I know the importance of the nervous system and how it relates to the child's overall health. I also know that spinal misalignment is the most common disruption to the health of nervous systems. With spinal misalignment, problems can occur anywhere in the body. As a chiropractor, my focus is on nerves, muscles, bones, and connective tissue, which can make up to 60% of the body's structure.
In no way do I want to downplay the importance of proper rest, posture, nutrition, clean air, water, and exercise. These all fine-tune the child's nervous system. Having a child's spine checked is vital to their overall health. Some conditions such as functional scoliosis, which can be detected as well as corrected by a skilled chiropractor, are often overlooked. It only takes a major childhood growth spurt and the child is left with the burden of a spinal curvature for life. It is not normal for a child to have headaches, neck pain, low back pain, bed wetting, or leg pain (growing pains), as these can often indicate a structural or nerve problem. Gentle techniques specifically for children may be a logical solution to these and many other issues.
