Chiropractic for Pediatrics/Children
Updated: Dec 20, 2021
In our office, we absolutely love seeing kids. Whether your child is 1 month old, 1 year old, or 10 years old, chiropractic can be an extremely valuable part of their wellness and health routine!
A study published in Chiropractic Research Journal compared the health and wellness of 200 children under regular chiropractic care vs 200 children who did not receive regular chiropractic care. The chiropractic group demonstrated:
Fewer ear infections
Fewer/less severe allergies
Fewer cases of tonsillitis
Fewer cases of asthma
The health of the children under chiropractic care was "demonstrably" superior to the children who had not received chiropractic care.
The most important thing to understand about chiropractic care for children is that it is preventative! Think about the reasons you brush your teeth regularly or eat healthy food or even change the oil in your car...we do these things not as a reaction to something bad, but in the hopes of preventing something bad from the very start!
