Childhood is one of the most physically demanding times of our life. The amount of rapid change that happens within the body is amazing to experience. In fact 65% of neurological development (development of the brain and nervous system) occurs in your child's first year of life. How we support children during these years determines their expression of health and well-being. Starting with the birthing process studies have found that a normal routine delivery can place a tremendous amount of pressure on the newborn's neck and neuro-spinal system. From birth to learning to crawl, walk, and play our little ones are exposed to a great deal of stress.
Chiropractic is a safe, very gentle approach to full child wellness. Gentle adjustments aid in removing any nerve dysfunction induced through labor and delivery. Newborns should be among the first to be checked for spinal misalignments. Chiropractic adjustments for adults differ significantly from those performed on newborns. The pressure placed on the child's spine is no more than the pressure you can comfortably tolerate by pressing into your closed eye. Allow your child the best start possible and have their spine checked today.
Drs. Russell and Lauren are NWA chiropractors trained in pediatric chiropractic care and know how to assess if your child is functioning at their optimal potential. These adjustments are done with light finger-tip pressure, similar to what would be used to check the ripeness of a tomato, without any 'popping' or 'cracking'. With a clear and balanced system, children can express their health optimally.
Children who have balanced nerve systems experience:
· Easier Bowel Movements
· Less Ear Infections
· Improved Latching when Nursing
· Improvement in Behavioral Issues and Calmness
· Better Sleep
· Reaching Milestones
· Less asthma
· Diminished allergies
