• Are you always feeling run down and tired?
• Do you take longer to recover from colds and flu?
• Do your children suffer from persistent ear infections and sore throats when others don’t?
• Do they experience behavioural or learning difficulties?
• Have you been told to wait for your infant to grow out of colic, reflux or bed-wetting?
The answer could be simpler than you think. Chiropractic. Are you surprised? I’ll bet you are. You probably think Chiropractors only treat people with sore backs. It’s a common misconception. In fact, many of my patients are under ten years old and have never complained of back or neck pain. I’ll tell you why their parents bring them to see me. To put it simply, Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your nervous system controls every autonomic function of your body (i.e. digestion, blood pressure, heart rate, respiration, bone growth etc…).
Your nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord, and millions of nerves. Your brain is protected by your skull and your spinal cord is protected by the 24 moving bones of the spine. Many everyday activities can cause these spinal bones to lose their normal position or motion. This can result in nervous system dysfunction and ultimately, ill health. This kind of nervous system dysfunction can be present in the complete absence of pain or symptoms. Poor posture (one shoulder higher than the other), uneven wear on shoes, restricted head or neck movement are all indicators of incorrect spinal curvatures and muscle imbalances that can cause nervous system dysfunction and reduced health.
The chiropractic approach to better health is to detect, reduce, and help prevent nervous system dysfunction. “Family Chiropractic Day” is specially designed for early detection of nervous system dysfunction in children and adults.
