Benefits of Pediatric Chiropractic Care in Matthews
With a new, antibiotic-resistant infection emerging nearly every day due to overuse of antibiotics, your Matthews chiropractor recommends opting for pediatric care using evidence-base principles of chiropractic medicine. Primary to maintaining overall health and well-being, an inflammation-free nervous system is the goal of chiropractors providing holistic treatments to both children and adults. When spinal nerves are irritated by compression from vertebral not in alignment with the spine, these nerves develop systemic inflammation that can impact all your child’s systems, from the respiratory and musculoskeletal system to the immune and digestive system.
Childhood Illnesses Caused by Subluxations
When your child’s body is physically or emotionally stressed, changes to normal vertebrae movement and positioning can occur. Although your child may not seem ill at the beginning of these changes, disturbances within the nervous system are happening and will eventually manifest in one or more illnesses. Systemic inflammation caused by misaligned vertebrae (subluxation) and compressed spinal nerves are often responsible for the following:
- Allergies/asthma/chronic respiratory infections
- Sports injuries
- Ear infections
- Deficient functioning of the immune system
- Focus and concentration problems
Pediatric care provided by your chiropractor in Matthews is not only safe, effective and medication-free but may also help alleviate symptoms of ADHD, food allergies and sleep disturbances.
How Old Should a Child Be Before They Can Visit a Chiropractor?
To ensure children enjoy optimized nervous system functioning throughout their young lives, chiropractors urge parents to include pediatric chiropractic care in their child’s health program as soon as they are six months old. This allows your chiropractor to determine if a subluxation exists and to correct the subluxation as soon as possible before inflammation of the nervous system negatively impacts the child’s health.
Matthews Chiropractic will carefully evaluate your child’s current health, examine their medical history and develop a personalized chiropractic care program consisting of procedures modified to accommodate your child’s weight, height, and spinal issues. Pediatric chiropractic techniques are gentle, painless and much preferable to children who are afraid of “getting a shot” at their primary care physician. We look forward to meeting all our young patients and showing them the benefits of holistic, needle-free, chiropractic care.
