Pediatric Chiropractic Care: How it Helps Your Child
If you have been visiting Total Health Systems for regular chiropractic care, you understand the benefits that it brings to your total body well-being. Adults have been using chiropractic care for many years to improve joint health, range of motion and to help with recovery after sports and athletic activities. Chiropractic care is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. It can also be a part of a healthy routine for your child. Children are under increasing stress, and like their parents, can benefit from regular pediatric chiropractic care.
Improved Posture and Growth
Setting a good frame for your child’s body to grow is incredibly important. Keeping joints and the spine in correct alignment is the best way to ensure that your child’s body is growing correctly and providing a strong and balanced frame to grow around. A routine of chiropractic care for your child keeps their joints and spine in the correct alignment, and can encourage good posture. With more and more children spending time in front of computers, video games and tablets, their posture can suffer. Keeping them standing and sitting straight is important to creating a healthy spine and body.
Adults aren’t the only ones who are suffering from increased stress. With more demands on your kids from school, sports, extra-curricular activities, and just life in general, their bodies could use some stress reduction. Just like with adults, chiropractic adjustments can reduce muscle tension and stress in children’s bodies. Reduced stress will allow your kids to be more successful in school, and have better performance in all of their extra-curricular activities.
Children can suffer from sleep issues just like adults. Because your nervous system and spine are the center of your body’s function and performance, when it is out of alignment the rest of your body’s functions aren’t quite right. The same is true for your children. When their body’s nervous system and spine aren’t in alignment they also suffer from changes in their body’s functions. Sleep is one of the most commonly impacted functions for children, when their body is “out of whack”. Not getting enough sleep can lead to performance issues in school, short attention span, and crankiness. Having a good chiropractic routine can keep your child’s body functioning correctly, and improve sleep habits.
If your child LOVES to play sports, you know just how important it is to keep your kids healthy. Sports injuries in childhood can leave lasting impacts on your child’s body in the future. A routine of chiropractic care can help reduce the chance of soft tissue injury during sports for your child, as well as improving recovery and overall athletic performance.
