Chiropractic For Kids
Tiger Family Chiropractic is experienced in helping children have improved lives with chiropractic care.
We are all born with a spine, and we should begin taking care of it from the very start.Since we recognize that getting chiropractic care for someone having repeated ear infections can seem disconnected for someone new to chiropractic, we wanted to take a moment here to offer explanation. Chiropractors do not ‘treat ear infections’ they treat misalignments in the spine called subluxations. We know that a misalignment in the neck can cause muscles to get tense, some of those muscles surround the Eustachian tube (or the tube that drains the inner ear). When a misalignment in the neck, causes the muscles around the Eustachian tube to tighten, it can change how effectively the Eustachian tube drains, allowing fluid to build up. The fluid then promotes growth of things like bacteria and viruses that can lead to infection. As chiropractors we adjust the misalignment, which in turn can relax those muscles, which in turn can allow the Eustachian tube to drain more effectively, which in turn removes the excess fluid and reduces the chances of infection. If you have a health concern for your child, and you are wondering if chiropractic care can help, give us a call. Our chiropractors would be happy to sit down and talk with you about how chiropractic care impacts the nervous system, and the results that can have on the body. You might also be wondering how babies or toddlers could get a spinal misalignment. The study mentioned up above suggests that most babies being born have damage to their neck and heads in the birthing process. Additionally, toddlers will trip, stumble, and fall more in a single week than an adult does in an entire year of their life. Posture changes in children occur at early ages too as they engage in iPad or tablet usage, and prolonged sitting. There are many reasons that your child might have a misalignment, it doesn’t require a huge incident or accident to cause them. You are welcome to set up a consultation with a doctor of chiropractic to make sure and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
