Pediactric Chiropractic at Align Wellness Center
It can be overwhelming as a parent when your child is constantly crying, and you’re not sure why. Chiropractic care will help to improve colic by reducing the pain and discomfort that is causing the crying. This is done by correcting the spine’s alignment and exactly why a baby would need a chiropractor.
This misalignment or subluxation can happen during childbirth, and as a result, they have symptoms such as colic and difficulty sleeping. Not only is this uncomfortable for them, but it’s also difficult for you as it’s both emotionally and physically exhausting. This can lead to problems later on in life if left untreated, such as hyperactivity, sensory integration, and trouble focusing.
But this misalignment can occur at any time. Children are active - they run, fall, and jump. And with getting them involved with sports as young as 4, they are subjected to increased injuries and misalignment of their spines. Which often leads to food allergies, behavioral problems, and a weakened immune system.
Pediatric chiropractic care has been successfully treating many disorders such as colic, scoliosis, ear infections, and digestive complications, and others specific to children for many years.
When the spine is aligned correctly, it promotes proper communication with the nervous system - improving your immune system by relieving pressure from the nerves. This pressure is the cause of pain and discomfort. Developing bodies are growing and changing frequently. Having a healthy nervous system is vital to their growth.
