A large part of our practice is seeing kids.
When people hear this from us, they normally follow up with a simple question – kids? But why?
Its completely understandable why most people would not expect children to have chronic low back pain or degeneration in their spines. It is also understandable that parents would be apprehensive or unsure about getting their kids checked for misalignments in their spine. After all, some chiropractic techniques are dynamic and even borderline aggressive for the children’s delicate necks.
So why would any parent want their child to get checked by a chiropractor? The answer is modern birthing techniques. Modern birthing includes such barbaric tools as forceps, suctions cups, etc. Oftentimes, the baby is pulled out of the womb by his or her neck (especially during Cesarean birth, which happens to 1 out of 3 kids today).
Furthermore, as the child is growing up and learning to sit, crawl, and walk – they will have clumsy moments where they land on their butt or even bang their head.
All of these situations can cause misalignments in the neck and the rest of the spine. These misalignments cause stress on the nervous system. Not only do they cause pain and tight muscles in the area where the subluxation is, but eventually they will begin to cause problems to where the nerves travel to.
The technique that we use here at Abundant Life is neurologically based. All of the adjustments that we do are instrument based – there is no clicking, popping, or cracking whatsoever. The care that we provide is safe and gentle for all ages – including kids.
