Here at Family Wellness at Teravista, we take care of a number of children. Our focus is on optimal pediatric development. The childhood years are the most important for developing a healthy strong spine and good postural habits for a lifetime. We all understand the brain is the master controller of the body. This is where all of our “Power” to run the body comes from. It communicates to your child’s lungs, stomach, ears and every cell in the body via the nerves. The spinal column is designed to protect the spinal cord, but misalignments, called Vertebral Subluxations or Subluxations, “pinch” these nerves decreasing normal function in the body. That’s why Dr. Power comes in to detect and remove vertebral subluxations, thus turning your “Power On!”. I’m sure by now you are wondering if your child has developed any of these harmful subluxations. The only way to tell is to have your spine evaluated by a chiropractor. The likelihood increases if your child has experienced any of the following:
- Traumas (slips and falls learning to walk, sports, falling off a bike…etc.)
- Thoughts (bullying, negative thoughts, school stress…etc.)
- Toxins (dairy, medication, sugar, food dyes, preservatives…etc.)
Birth Trauma (induced or prolonged labor, forceps delivery, breech presentation, C-sections…etc.) is the number one cause of all subluxations. As a result, parents typically seek care for their children who want to prevent or have developed scoliosis, ear infections, colic, bed wetting, asthma, allergies, ADD and digestive problems. Kids always love our safe approach to correcting subluxations.
Naturally, some parents express concern over the safety of chiropractic care for children. However, chiropractic adjustments are very safe and effective. Children haven’t developed degenerative patterns and abnormal muscle development from years of spinal stress. Therefore, adjustments for infants require the same amount of pressure used to check the ripeness of a tomato. Children also typically respond to care much faster than adults.
If you haven’t had your child’s spine checked for subluxation, we encourage you to do today! We are here to serve you, so be sure to ask plenty of questions. We’ve listed several resources below to help you make your decision.
