Have you ever thought of bringing your child to the chiropractor after he or she suffers a sports injury or a tumble down the steps? At Integrated Health Solutions, we are trained to work with children. Children’s joints and muscle are not fully grown. Therefore, trained pediatric chiropractors use different types of techniques for them. The adjustments are made quicker with less force.
The Central Nervous System and Children
The central nervous system is comprised of your brain, and your spinal cord, including the nerves that extend from it. These nerves branch out to every organ, gland, tissue, muscle, and cell inside your body. As infants grow into toddlers and experience their body more, the falls and stumbles they make can cause shifts in their musculoskeletal system. These subluxations, or misalignments, can push on the spinal nerves and impede the function of the nervous system, hampering their body’s ability to work at its best.
Why Visit the Chiropractor?
Adults visit the chiropractor after a sports-injury or a repetitive motion condition. Children can be treated for these type of musculoskeletal issues as well. Also, chiropractic treatments are used on children for such non-musculoskeletal conditions as:
- Ear infections
- Digestive problems
- Asthma attacks
- Sleep Troubles
- Sports injuries
- Concentration issues
- Irritable baby syndrome
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
- Autism spectrum disorders
