& See If Chiropractic Care is a Good Option for Your Child
Many people don’t know that getting chiropractic care for their newborn child is so important, however the ideal time to start practicing healthy spinal care is during infancy and childhood when they are most exposed to the outside world in many ways.
Chiropractic and the Nervous System
The main aim for chiropractic adjustments is to clear the interference in the nervous system which can be caused by spinal misalignment. The nervous system has a solid control over your brain signals and coordinates every other system, organ and cell in your body. Which is why it is necessary to have a well-functioning nervous system that enables the body to function and develop optimally.
Causes of Nervous System Interference
Nervous system interference can result in many different symptoms related to illness, aches and pains in children, toddlers and even newborns. The cause of the interference can very. The end result however is a lack of communication from the brain to the body, resulting in a symptom. Removing the interference allows the body to function as it was designed to.
The Birthing Process
The birthing process, without a doubt, is one of the most physically stressful experiences a child has to go through. It involves twisting and compression of a baby’s fragile spine from the use of forceps, vacuums, and other such tools. This type of physical stress can lead to misalignments and distortions in the spine and nervous system.
Children and toddlers in their growing years are prone to mild falls and accidental mishaps. Unknowingly, this can cause potential trauma to the spine leading to problems as the child gets older. Just as adults slip and fall, kids experience the same however, kids may bounce back much easier, it doesn’t mean that the problem or misalignment disappears it just means that since the child’s body is still developing its working to balance everything out much faster. Muscles building up in the wrong area to stabilize often creates problems in the future.
Physical, chemical and emotional stressors can be some of the factors causing nervous system interference. Other environmental influences related to home, school, nursery, parks or any other places your child visits can also impact the nervous system.
