Chiropractic Care Can Boost Your Child's Immunity
Chiropractic care can benefit children in many ways because of its positive effect on their nervous system. One benefit is maximizing their immune system.
Colds, viruses, flu, strep throat, stomach bugs and more. This winter has definitely tested everyone's immune system and the bulk of winter has just begun.
First, it is important to understand that chiropractic care is not a treatment for any disease, its sole purpose is to reduce interference to the nervous system thus unleashing the healing power of the body.
For a child, this interference can be caused by damage to the spine by such events as birth, falls and injuries, sports injuries, heavy backpacks and postural strain from sitting in a chair at school all day. If these small cumulative traumas and postural strains are left uncorrected, they can have far-reaching effects on a child's health.
Dr. Jordan Quint states that the nervous system directs the immune system and chiropractic care helps improve the function of the nervous system and the immune system, making it become more powerful. According to the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA),
Dr. Jordan has treated his children since birth and they have never had an ear infection or strep throat and rarely get the common colds.The positive effect on the nervous system is the key in chiropractic care because it’s the master system of the body.
Dr. Jordan strives to have a welcoming atmosphere for all patients, especially his pediatric patients. His pediatric patients range from as young as 36 hours old to college age students. Any age is welcome at Art of Life Chiropractic. When searching for a chiropractic practice, not all practices have pediatric experience. You can always check the practice's website and look for specific references to pediatric care. You can also call to ask the staff questions about the doctor’s experience with pediatrics to ensure that you and your child feel very comfortable.
Pediatric chiropractic care is a non-invasive, gentle treatment, which helps the child's body achieve a state of true health. Many parents today are seeking health care options which support their children's own natural ability to be healthy and to express their fullest potential.
Chiropractic care is one option that every parent should explore.
