Children and Chiropractic

“As the twig is bent, so grows the tree.”  While many of us see a chiropractor regularly for a variety of reasons from neck and back pain, headaches and digestive issues, we often forget about our children.  As adults, we are aware of our stresses, falls and aches and pains, we tend to think that children just bounce back and have little to no stress, yet often the problems we experience as adults, started when we were children.  For more information on children and chiropractic, contact your Edmonton chiropractor at 780-430-7549.

In addition to helping prevent future neck and back pain, chiropractic for children can help with a variety of common childhood ailments.  The nervous system is the master system of the body, it controls all other systems, if there is a blockage in the information pathway, the body cannot function at its best and symptoms arise. Imagine the nervous system is the lighting system of your home; it is difficult to do anything in the dark, without the lights turned on.  Chiropractic can help turn on the lights, making it easier for your body to function.  For more information on how to “turn on” the lights, contact your Edmonton Chiropractor at 780-430-7549.

There are many things chiropractic can help in children, below is a list of the top ten reasons parents take their children to see a chiropractor:
