Discover the truth about Chiropractic and kids!
Chiropractic for my child? Why? He/she doesn’t have back or neck pain.” If you are wondering about the answer to this question, you’ll want to read on.
As chiropractors, we often encounter parents who understand the importance of regular exams for their child’s eyes, ears, nose, throat, hearing, and teeth, but who overlook routine spinal check-ups. In fact, they could be the most important checkups your child can receive.
Do Recurrent Ear Infections Have You Confused? If so, You’re Not Alone!
“My pediatrician prescribes antibiotics for ear infections, by my child has recurrences.” Many parents frequently state this remark each day. Commonly, parents accept acute otitis media as a normal part of a young child’s life.
The truth, however, is that although common, there is nothing normal about it. Research shows that children may get ear infections as a result of improper drainage of the deep neck lymphatics. This causes fluid to build up, the ear drum to appear inflamed and bulging, creating a welcome habitat for bacteria.
Can Childhood Falls Create Undiagnosed Health Problems in Your Child?
As a concerned parent, you want the best for your child, and no doubt you wonder if your child is as healthy as he or she could be. Several factors determine your child’s overall health, including diet, exercise, proper rest, emotional and spiritual support, and a properly functioning nervous system.
A major component for health is the communication between your child’s brain and body. This vital link controls the growth, repair, and function of every tissue and organ.
A Winning Combination!
Are you pregnant? Have you been experiencing low back pain, headaches, nausea, insomnia, or other symptoms? Chiropractic care may be able to help you and your baby achieve a happier and healthier pregnancy and delivery.
Upon discovering they are pregnant, many women become conscious of eating healthy foods, avoiding alcohol and cigarettes, exercising, and getting proper sleep; however, they are unaware of the importance of having their prenatal chiropractic checkups.
Children’s Chiropractic Information Center
(Open to the Public)
Today in America, we live in a society where childhood illness is considered normal, and where drug and antibiotic overuse and abuse is at an all-time high. It is commonplace for children to develop ear infections, colic, asthma, and allergies, etc. The list goes on and on. Many children are prescribed antibiotics and/ or other medications well before they reach their first birthday.
As bacteria and viruses gain momentum and render themselves increasingly untreatable using mediation, we are seeing that whole wings of hospitals are set aside strictly for the treatment of antibiotic-resistant disease. As a result, you may wonder: What is the answer?
Dr. Jackie St.Cyr, owner of the INNATE CHIROPRACTIC HEALING ARTS CENTER, has a busy family practice and consistently works to better serve her community.
