Chiropractic for Kids - A Lifetime Benefit Listen to Our Radio Show on How To Raise A Health Child
"If you are interested in helping your child have more than you did, consider starting with their health and introducing them to Chiropractic and the Chiropractic Life-Style."
Children are usually much closer to their sources of power than are adults, even though kids are usually not aware of this set of special abilities. If you recognize a special set of talents or skills within your child, do whatever you can to foster more of that from them so they can stay in conscious connection with the gifts that were given to them. Praise them and encourage their talent to draw more of that out of them, even if you do not understand the gift yourself. Reading the book "The Indigo Children: The New Kids Have Arrived" by Lee Carrol and Jan Tober will help you understand your child better if you are having trouble connecting with them.
Also recognize that the health of your child is directly tied to their success in life. It is for this reason we encourage you to take an active role in setting the foundational habits for growing up and remaining healthy. BE an example for them by the choices that you make and show them what it means to live a healthy life-style. Have them learn from your experience to make their life easier as they grow up. And what parent does not want that for their child?
Children Fall - A Lot
When a child is learning to go from crawling to standing to walking to running, they fall in excess of 120 times a day. Sure the fall is not that far, perhaps 12 inches onto a padded diaper, yet if they do this 120 times a day for several days in a row, this will lead to spinal mis-alignments and decreased nervous system communication and efficiency for their normal function. Most parents never consider this. Why?
Children Recover Well
Quick recovery from injuries is another skill that kids have naturally. They fall down hard and bounce right back up. If they break a bone, it heals in a few weeks compared to the six - eight weeks it often takes an adult's body to repair a fracture.
Children are Very Adaptable
For the most part, if a child's day has been a busy one, filled with activities, she'll fall asleep as soon as her head hits the pillow.
This doesn't always happen with adults.
Often after a busy day, an adult will lie awake at night, reviewing everything that happened, repeating all the conversations, searching for ways to make it all come out better. A child's brain is filled with much less extra stuff, and they're able to get rest more easily and efficiently.
If you child is having difficulties falling asleep, better to take action sooner rather than later. This will keep them in balance and will support their maintaining balance and harmony.
Chiropractic Enhances This
Chiropractic care enhances even further this set of extraordinary abilities. As their healing powers are so much stronger, kids' bodies absorb the many benefits of chiropractic treatment and immediately put them to good use. If they weren't feeling well their return to good health is quick, and if they were feeling great, their bodies are now even more optimized. Chiropractic care helps kids maximize the joys of being kids!
How Is Your Child's Spinal Health
If you've ever wondered about the health of your child's spine, especially with all their physical activity of carrying bookbags, playing sports or the drain of doing homework, consider bringing your child in for a check-up. Appreciate they too need periodic chiropractic care, especially if their bones are growing and their bodies are changing.
Call the office for an appointment for your child. After all, aren't they worth it? And what you do for them today can have a lifetime benefit, then why wouldn't you. They say, "A stitch in time saves you nine." Or, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." This is true for your children as well as yourself.
