Chiropractic Can Keep Your Child's Nervous System Healthy

chiropractor high fiving a smiling childAnyone with a spine can get a subluxation, which is simply a misalignment of a bone or bones in the spine that causes interference in the nervous system. When this interference occurs, the brain and body don’t communicate properly, resulting in pain, illness and dysfunction. In kids, this often presents with colic, sleep issues, nursing problems, reflux or behavioral issues can manifest such as ADD/ADHD, in addition to lowered immune function.

Kids’ bodies are subjected to their own physical, chemical and emotional stress, such as carrying heavy backpacks, playing energetically at recess, medications and pollutants, and even navigating interpersonal relationships with their peers. Looking down at tech devices and the additional stress of the holidays also contribute. All these stressors accumulate in the body, causing subluxations and interference in the nervous system.

The good news is that chiropractic care can remove that nervous system interference/stress so your child can enjoy optimal health!

Pediatric Specialists

We specialize in caring for kids at Family Connection Chiropractic. Our San Diego chiropractors are certified in pediatric chiropractic care by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), and we use special techniques designed specifically for babies’ and children’s bodies. Among others, we use the Activator for kids, which are very low-force, gentle techniques that are completely painless.

Our chiropractors love working with kids, and we take the time to build rapport with them before we adjust them. We let them set the tone, and we will adjust them wherever they are comfortable, from the play area to being held by a parent or care-taker. We never force an adjustment on a child.
