Treating pain management, heightening mobility, increasing circulation, and providing an overall higher level of health makes chiropractic patients some of the most satisfied in the medical profession. Gentle, non-invasive, drug-free treatment makes chiropractic care a top choice for not only adults, but also children. Recent research, conducted by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), discovered that spinal manipulation therapy is a safe and effective treatment for children of all ages—including newborn babies.
Chiropractic care affects one’s overall health; therefore, it is no surprise that it has proven to be helpful in improving acute earache, headaches, scoliosis, upper respiratory infections, muscle pain, neck pain, and accident trauma in children. Children who experience consistent chiropractic care have healthier immune systems, sleep better, and experience a higher level health than their peers—much like adults who benefit from consistent chiropractic care. It is an excellent form of alternative health care. While there are not enough studies to be fully conclusive, there is even some evidence that chiropractic care improves sleep disorders, asthma, allergy symptoms, and attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Some studies have even suggested that chiropractic care in children may prevent degenerative bone or disk disease, osteoporosis, and osteoarthritis. While some of this information may still be speculative, one fact is certain. Children who experience consistent chiropractic care are healthier as a result. Preventative maintenance for your child may be the best gift you can give them.
