Pediatric Chiropractic Care and Why it is Beneficial
Chiropractic care has long been praised for its numerous health and wellness benefits. What many people are not aware of the fact that chiropractic care can be very beneficial for children. This is largely because their bodies are still growing and can respond well to the adjustments that chiropractors can provide. The alignment of the spine is very important for proper development and routine chiropractic care can ensure your child’s growth and development stays on track. Give us a call to learn more about pediatric chiropractic care and how it can benefit your loved ones.
Spinal problems in children can result in a range of conditions and disorders and health issues. These include ear infections, irritability, mood disorders, headaches, asthma, stomach issues, growing pains, and much more. Pediatric application of chiropractic care requires a unique set of techniques that are different from those used with adults. A chiropractor who treats children needs specialized training and experience and our team here at Reimer Wellness Center of Los Altos can ensure your child gets the care he or she needs.
Here are five important benefits your child can enjoy from chiropractic care that is focused on pediatrics:
1. Improved Sleep
Since the services provided by a chiropractor are designed to ease stress and maintain proper balance in the body, it can do a lot to improve your child’s sleep. Certain tensions will build up over the course of a day, even if your child seems relaxed and happy. It’s important for their development that they sleep well throughout the night and regular chiropractor care has shown to help provide that restful sleep for children.
2. Immune System Support
Chiropractic care can also offer a major boost to your child’s immune system. When the body is in balance and all systems are working as they should the immune system has an easier time fighting off illness. This support can provide additional support to other essential systems including the stomach, heart, lungs, brain, and lymphatic system. This all helps boost the immune system and helps keep your child healthier.
3. Better Behavior
Less stress means the body is in balance and the mind is at peace. This, in turn, leads to better behavior and fewer problems with things like aggression, mood swings, and irritability. Chiropractors that focus on pediatrics and related services can help improve attention and focus as well, which can help your child do better in school. Spinal adjustments can be done quickly and easily and have lasting results.
4. Brain Development
Pediatric chiropractic care can also improve the neural development of your child’s brain and improve focus, memory, and recall. The brain and spine are closely connected, and one feeds into and off of the other. When the brain and spine can communicate feely the results are improved brain development and enhanced neurological functions in both the short term and the long term as well.
