Internal Communication System
Your child (or grandchild) was born perfect, but are they perfectly healthy? Even modern birth is not without its stresses for both mother and child. From head compression to the bodily systems beginning to function independently outside of the womb, there is a lot going on regarding your child’s health from the moment they are born.
Regardless of age, the nervous system is in control when it comes to your body’s internal communication system. Any type of interference in that system can result in problems for infants, babies, and children in the same way it can for adults. From infancy through death, subluxations or nerve irritations are an unavoidable part of everyday life for us all. Before lifestyle choices come into play, nerve irritation in the uterus can occur. Irritation can be due to positioning of the baby, toxins, and complicated birth including too long or too fast labor.
Tumbles, Stumbles, and Life
Colic, problems suckling and breastfeeding, lack of quality sleep, poor digestion, and developmental delays can all affect infants. They are also all things that can be treated by a visit to the chiropractor.
As your child grows and develops coordination, learning to walk will inevitably result in stumbles and tumbles. Poor posture, exposure to chemicals and toxins and drugs will affect your child’s health and their body’s internal communication system.
Later, sports, carrying heavy book bags, cellphone hunchback, academic stress, and so many other aspects of childhood which are today considered commonplace, will continue to affect that internal communication system.
Making lifestyle care with your chiropractor a regular part of your child’s wellness practice you will be giving them the support they need to maximize their neural plasticity allowing them to maximize their brain and nerve development and learning. Spinal subluxations can alter the function of your child’s nervous system and affect their health on every level— even though they may lie asymptomatic for decades.
