The Immune System
Since chiropractic treatment allows the nervous system to function properly, it also helps to boost a child’s immune system and decrease downtime from colds, the flu, ear infections and more.
Digestive problems like constipation, reflux, and stomach pain aren’t always caused by diet. Many of these issues can actually stem from nerve dysfunction. Chiropractic care helps to alleviate these nervous system problems and allow the digestive system to function normally.
Tight muscles can affect sleep, and a good night’s sleep is essential for health. This is especially true for children who rely on sleep for good brain development. Addressing spinal misalignments and alleviating back pain makes it easier for a child to fall asleep and stay asleep, which lends itself to better overall health. Chiropractic care can also be successfully used to treat bedwetting!
When a child has ADHD or ADD, problems in the child’s spine can make these conditions even worse. Resolving issues of the musculoskeletal system can help to improve a child’s behavior and even allow them to concentrate and perform better in school.
