5 Reasons Your Child Should See A Kalamazoo Chiropractor

5 Reasons Your Child Should
See A Kalamazoo Chiropractor

Chiropractic Care for Kids in Kalamazoo MI

From the very first moment your child enters the world, its nervous system and little spine are being tested. The trauma that babies encounter at birth through abnormal positioning, c-section, birth intervention through forceps and vacuum extraction, and even natural deliveries are more than enough to force the spine out of proper alignment. One current study even showed that 90% of newborns suffered birth trauma and associated strain through the neck and cranial areas through birth.

As time goes on, children in Kalamazoo are at an even greater risk for subluxations (misalignments of the spine). Just take a moment and think about the number of times your child falls in a given day. Whether it is from learning to walk, running in your backyard, falling off their bike, or just simply a lack of developmental ability, your child probably falls. A lot. These falls put them at greater risk for misalignments and developmental health issues including focus, behavior, mood changes, digestion, hyperactivity, asthma, allergies, and more.

But that isn’t even half of it. By the time your child is one year old, their spine has lengthened by 50%. At no other time in their life will your child’s spine grow so rapidly which is why it is so important to make sure your child’s spine is in correct alignment to ensure proper growth and development.


THE NERVOUS SYSTEM AND HOW IT INFLUENCES YOUR CHILD’S HEALTH IN KALAMAZOO

Your central nervous system is made up of your brain and spinal cord. Exiting your spinal cord are nerves that go to every single organ, tissue, muscle, gland, and cell that make up the body. The nervous system sends and receives signals from the brain to tell your body how to function. Your spine houses this brain and spinal cord and if misalignments are present, they can interrupt the proper communication going to and from your brain. If that communication gets interrupted, a child could exhibit symptoms such as colic, ear infections, reflux, constipation, bed-wetting, and more as a response to that lack of proper communication. Our Kalamazoo chiropractors can help with these conditions by focusing on the nervous system to ensure it is functioning optimally. This allows the nervous system to function without interference restoring the signals in your child’s body so that it can function the way it was always meant to.
