Chiropractic during childhood and infancy are vital! This is when the spine and brain are developing and setting life long patterns for health or disease.
As chiropractors in Centennial who serve families this subject is very important to us. Our children are now facing some of the most significant health challenges in our society. As a result, children are now predicted to live shorter lives than their parents. Making a new approach to health more important than ever.
Chiropractic seeks to correct the cause of disease, rather than just treating symptoms. When there are mis-alignments or subluxations in the spine it reduces the brains ability to control the body. This causes break down, and disease with-in the body. But when the subluxations are corrected, the brain is able to properly control the body. Which restores optimal healing! This is what chiropractic does!
New research from April 2019 reports significant improvements in over 1000 infants receiving chiropractic care. Most noted health improvements included:
- feeding problems
- inconsistent sleep
- excessive crying
- sleep discomfort
- infant pain
- restricted range of motion in neck
BONUS: Moms had health improvements too.
- reduced rates of depression and anxiety
- improved maternal satisfaction
- 95% of mothers reported the chiropractic care proved cost-effective
- 90.9% rated their satisfaction as an 8 or higher on an 11-point scale
Our vision is to have every man, woman, and child use chiropractic care. This would allow all people to heal and function at 100%. Join us in this vision, by sharing this blog, and sending in your friends and family.
Our community deserves to have restored brain and spinal health, not just less back and neck pain. For example, we have seen babies go from struggling to survive to crawling, then walking and then PLAYING! Talk about life changing for those families!!
Chiropractic care maximizes the health and function of the nervous system. It does this by improving the alignment and movement of the spine. This allows the brain and body to provide long term health and healing without the use of drugs and surgeries. The benefits of Chiropractic are for everybody… including babies!
