Today, we find more parents bringing their children to chiropractors for day-to-day health concerns we’re all familiar with: colds, sore throats, ear infections, fevers, colic, asthma, tonsillitis, allergies, bed-wetting, infections, pains, falls, stomach-aches, and the hundred and one little and big things children go through as they grow up. It is important to remember that although many of our little patients find relief from these ailments with their chiropractic care this is never the focus.
A pediatric chiropractor’s purpose is to reduce nerve system stress, a serious and often painless condition most children (and adults) have in their bodies. Nerve system stress interferes with the proper functioning of the entire system, can weaken internal organs and organ systems, lower resistance, reduce healing potential and set the stage for the sickness and disorders listed above.
When a pediatric chiropractor frees the nervous system from stress, the healing power of the body is returned to its optimal level: the immune system works more efficiently, resistance to disease increases, and your child’s body functions more efficiently. Your child can then respond to internal and external environmental stresses such as germs, changes in temperature, humidity, toxins, pollen and all the other stresses he/she comes in contact with more efficiently.
