Pediatric Chiropractic

Pediatric Chiropractic DeWitt MI

It’s better to grow healthy kids than to fix injured adults.

From the moment children are born, they stun us with their strength and resilience. Within months, they learn to support their own weight, crawl, and eventually walk, run, and dance. With how active and strong children are, most parents don’t assume their child would need chiropractic care.

While children are resilient, they still fall, get sick, and are constantly growing. All of the changes they experience keep their small frames under constant stress. For healthy development, bone and joint strength, and overall wellness, you may want to consider pediatric chiropractic care for your child.

Why Do Children Need Pediatric Chiropractic Care?

The nervous system begins developing in the womb long before a child is born. It controls all systems in the body, including immune, digestive, and respiratory, as well as bodily movements, functions, and even emotions. 

No matter how a birth goes, vaginal or cesarean, infants experience trauma. In fact, many babies suffer cervical strain from the birthing process and even strain patterns in the cranial mechanisms. When these parts of the spine are misplaced or injured, known as a subluxation, nerve flow is reduced.

Reduced nerve flow affects nervous system function, which in turn affects the rest of the body. Subluxations can weaken internal organs, lower the immune system, and reduce the ability for a child to heal naturally. Not to mention, as children grow, they’re under constant stress of growing bones, muscles, and joints – these changes can pull and tug at a child leading to unhealthy posture, poor movement habits, and pain.

Pediatric chiropractic care is needed to ensure subluxations are corrected and maximize a child’s ability to develop without added injuries, aches, and pains. Chiropractic care will also strengthen your child’s immune, digestive, and respiratory systems.

As parents, we’d do anything to keep our children happy and healthy. Pediatric chiropractic care will aid the systems of the body and reduce discomfort, which in turn will make your child feel better overall.
