Does Your Child Have a Bad Back?

Carrying a backpack that’s overly packed can cause strain on your child’s spine.

Natural health care, including chiropractic care, isn’t just for adults! In fact, using natural healing techniques for children is every bit as beneficial for them as it is for their parents. Nevertheless, the idea that children, even newborns, would see a chiropractor to get adjusted is a stretch for some. Why would a parent bring them in? How would a child benefit? What would prompt the need for chiropractic care?

Here are a few reasons:

  • Birth trauma. Even so-called natural childbirth methods can take a toll on a baby’s spine. Cesarean Section can be even more so.
  • Colic. Lacking the ability to explain their discomfort, babies cry. And cry! Many experience extraordinary relief with chiropractic care.
  • Ear infections. Mechanical tension in the upper spine can compromise the inner ear and eustachian tubes, becoming fertile ground for infection.

Gentle, Effective Care

Children seem to enjoy their adjustments. Besides requiring a lighter touch than the ones you receive, most infants respond quickly. They rarely have the build up of scar tissue that we often see in adults with long-standing problems.

Do you know a child that could benefit from today’s safe and natural chiropractic care? Resolving these problems early can avoid problems later on.

We often experience pain when something isn’t working properly. By that logic, feeling good would mean that everything is working fine, right? Not always. Because it’s often easier to tell when your spine isn’t as healthy as it could be, we’d like to share four habits of a happy, healthy spine.

1. It’s carried well.

For a healthy spine, good posture is crucial. This doesn’t mean just standing up straight when you’re moving about, but also being conscious of how you sit when you’re at work or home and even how you sleep in your bed.

2. There’s always time for exercise.

A happy, healthy spine needs regular exercise to function well. So, what’s the best way to exercise your spine? Work the muscles around it like your abs so they’re strong enough to maintain its proper position.

3. It gets proper nutrients.

When we eat healthily, chances are we’re more conscious of how it may help our clothes fit well than what it does for our nervous system. A healthy diet high in leafy greens and vegetables can help our body better accommodate stress and allow our nervous system to function optimally.

4. Your spine is well rested.

Not getting enough sleep each night can wreak havoc on our entire body—including our spine. Your spine helps you stay upright all day, and it needs its time to relax and rejuvenate just like the rest of you. Make sure your spine is supported during sleep and avoid stomach slumber when possible.
