If you’re reading this, you are probably wondering if Chiropractic care can help your child! Or if you’ve heard that it can help, you may be wondering “how does it work”? Well you are certainly not alone! We are seeing more and more parents curious about the benefits of Chiropractic care and how it can help you raise a healthy child!
Your child may be experiencing some challenges right now, and you are looking for a solution that will help them live the life that you know they are capable of living. Chiropractic care may be that solution for your family! Read on to learn how….
Why would my child need Chiropractic?
To put it in a single word would be stress. Stress comes in a lot of different forms, especially for children. The most common and impactful stressor that any child will experience is their birth. While birth is a beautiful and miraculous process, it can place a great deal of physical stress on both mom and baby. Then as they grow up and learn to crawl, then walk, then run, then jump, the physical stressors to their body and spine start to add up.
On top of the physical stressors, children are growing up in an increasingly fast-paced, demanding world. Grades, technology, social media, sports, all add stress to their lives. These stressors accumulate and often get held in the body in different areas. It’s just like if you’ve had a stressful day, you can sometimes feel your shoulders stuck to your ears because of the tension!
To sum it up – all these stressors of daily life for our children build up and keep them stuck in “stress mode”. If they are stuck in stress mode, their bodies are not able to properly adapt to challenges that they face on a daily basis. The inability to adapt is what can cause the warning signs, or symptoms, to begin creeping in.
Our Approach to Care
In our office we use a powerful suite of technology that is called INSiGHT Scanning technology. This technology consists of three scans to give us a snapshot of how the nervous system is functioning. These three scans are: Heart Rate Variability (HRV), Neuro-Thermal Scan (skin temperature thermography), and Surface Electromyography (sEMG).
These scans, along with an in-depth consultation and exam, allow us to uncover if there is stress, subluxation, and dysautonomia present in you or your child’s nervous system. If there is, the scans allow us to quantify, locate, and track that stress as it changes. Once we see the scans, we can determine the appropriate Chiropractic care plan (a series of chiropractic adjustments) to unwind that stress and allow you or your child to reclaim your life and do what you love.
