The Top Five Reasons to Take Your Kids to the Chiropractor

Thrive Chiropractic isn’t just a kid-friendly place. We’re truly kid-focused. Everything about our office is designed to make your children and family feel comfortable, welcome and have a great experience. But that begs the question – why would children even go to a chiropractor?

Here are the top five reasons that patients seek out pediatric chiropractic:

1. Colic and reflux. If your baby is stressed, not sleeping well, spits up a lot and is fussy, something is preventing their growth and development system from working as it should. Often, this comes from nerve from irritation in the neck and upper back. The nerves in these areas control the stomach, digestion, and many more important functions.

2. Ear infections. Our very first patient was an 18-month-old who had an ear infection every month for six months before meeting us. Fast forward to today and this kiddo hasn’t had one in the two years since! A neck misalignment (often from the birthing process) can prevent the eustachian tubes from draining. By correcting it, your child can thrive and restore proper balance to the immune system.

3. Always sick. Imbalance in the immune system can lead to unending sicknesses: inflamed tonsils or adenoids, chronic colds, coughs, asthma, and more. Restoring balance to the nervous system allows the brain and body to communicate as they should.

4. ADHD/anxiety. Children are increasingly diagnosed with neurological challenges such as sensory processing disorder, anxiety, ADHD, and more. While many focus on the label or diagnosis, at Thrive we want to understand WHY it’s happening. With our advanced scans, we can detect how much input or stress is going into your child’s brain and get to the underlying causes behind these issues.

5. Optimal health. Most of the patients at Thrive aren’t there because they have a problem, but because they want their child to reach their full potential! Pediatric chiropractic care helps prevent future issues and make sure that nothing is preventing them from achieving optimal health. At Thrive we believe that kids are meant to be happy, healthy, and to thrive!

Our Gentle Touch

There’s a common misconception that children are adjusted like an adult. This couldn’t be further from the truth! There is no twisting, cracking or popping needed to adjust a baby or young child. In fact, very little input is required to make a tremendous impact on their health. With a newborn, adjustments are simply a sustained contact much like the pressure you’d use to check the ripeness of an avocado or tomato. Babies who come in sleeping snooze right through their adjustment as well!
