To the age question, children of chiropractors are usually adjusted ‘right out of the tube’ - meaning as soon after birth as possible. One of my chiropractor educator colleagues and his wife (also a chiropractor) told me he adjusted his first-born at 17 minutes! One of the most damaging forces a child will ever face occurs during the process that brings them into this world – childbirth. The birthing process is very traumatic for both the mother and the child. During medically mediated births, the twisting and pulling on the child’s head and cervical spine creates a very good chance for spinal misalignments (subluxations) to occur which can place great stress on the cervical spine of the newborn. This can set the stage for many health challenges over the entire lifetime of the individual.
Children of all ages are generally more active than adults which constantly exposes them to physical stress from the everyday things that kids do. Chiropractic care helps children maintain the integrity of their spine alignment which helps the nervous system work without interference. This allows kids to ‘bounce’ whenever they fall and ‘bounce back’ more quickly from the stresses they are exposed to in daily life, especially illnesses.
Additionally, children of chiropractors are rarely immunized yet are generally healthier than the population at large. A child’s immune system is regularly being assaulted and therefore fine tuned by its immediate environment. Since the nervous system controls ALL body functions (including the immune system), having a nervous system that functions without interference from spinal misalignments creates optimal health.
When children receive regular adjustments, the nervous system has the ability to work properly which plays an integral role in how well the immune system functions.
Infants and children of all ages can benefit greatly by receiving care from a qualified chiropractor.
