Why would my child need chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care is a great way to start the health of a baby off right!

Chiropractic is based on the premise that our bodies are born with all we need to be healthy. It's this innate intelligence inside us that knows to scab over a cut on our bodies to heal and keep us safe. It's also the innate intelligence that tells our bodies to run a hot fever when an invader has entered. (B/c at a hot internal temperature will help kill the invader)
Chiropractic works on allowing your body to best adapt to its environment and surroundings. How does this happen? An adjustment to the spine helps allow the communication from the brain to the rest of the body flow freely. It's the brain that communicates to all the muscles, tissues, and organs what their jobs are and how to best function, thus allowing maximum expression of health.
A chiroprator checks the spine for subluxations - areas of the spine which are interfering with the brain-body communication. A subluxation can be present without pain and without any changes in function.
An adjustment to a subluxation allows the message from the brain to the rest of the body to communicate freely. This allows the organs to function better, which allows the best health possible.
Chiropractic adjustments are the basis for overall health and wellness. Children under the care of a chiropractor experience less frequent colds and flus, have better energy and concentration, have less frequency of ear infections, allergies, asthma, and other common childhood conditions.
