KIDS WILL BE KIDS, AND THEY LOVE TO PLAY AND EXPLORE AND CAN EXPERIENCE BUMPS AND BRUISES JUST LIKE THE REST OF US.
The issue is, our children can’t always express what or how they feel. In our office, we base health on more than just feeling- we examine how a child’s body and nervous system is actually functioning. From blood flow, to brain function and bone growth, the nervous system plays a central role in keeping things working and healthy. Stress and misalignment of the spine can have serious impacts on a child's overall health and behavior during their most important formative years, in physical form and in neurological development.
We are so passionate about helping kids grow into healthy adults and avoid any unnecessary medications and surgeries. We all experience our first physical trauma on the day we are born– natural and cesarean childbirth alike can be impactful on an infant’s spine, with pressure, pulling, and twisting on a newborn’s neck. Then, as children learn to crawl, walk, and grow, they can experience falls, accidents, and sports injuries. Students sit all day at school, can develop poor posture, and can experience undue stress from heavy backpacks. We have all also heard of “text neck” that can result from looking down at a phone, a computer and even textbooks. In addition to physical stress, we are impacted by emotional and chemical stress. These stressors can lead to things like growing aches and pains, headaches, and difficulty concentrating and focusing, as well as a lowered immune system and improper digestive function.
We will check children for nerve interference from minutes to hours of being born, all the way into adolescence. Each gentle, non-invasive and specific adjustment allows the child’s nervous system to function optimally, ensuring that they have the best start to life and live to their body’s highest ability. Nothing gives us greater joy than to help children and young adults thrive and become the best versions of themselves.
