Chiropractic Care for Children in Mendota

Dr. Becker adjusting girls neckRegardless of age, a properly functioning nervous system is essential for development and growth. Chiropractic is the only profession that deals with the detection and correction of subluxations.

Subluxations occur when spinal vertebrae are mispositioned and create interference in the functioning of the nervous system. Chiropractic has not only been shown to help children with a variety of health challenges, but chiropractic can also help children achieve a higher level of performance and function.

Newborns, Infants & Babies

The birth process can be traumatic on a young newborn’s spine. Nerve system interference, commonly created during the birth process, can have a serious impact on a baby’s health and development. Specific adjusting techniques are used to gently correct spinal issues safely, with no discomfort.

Toddlers and Pre-Schoolers

As toddlers begin to walk, a whole new dynamic of spinal function comes into play. Not only is gravity being applied to the spine differently than when the baby was crawling, but toddlers often fall when learning to walk. This is a critical time to make sure that the spine and nervous system are free from interference due to subluxation.

Many common childhood issues would be less common if more children had their spines checked. Adjustments given to these young children are specifically designed for their young spines, and are shown to be safe and effective.

School-aged Children

Children in school are subject to a variety of spinal stresses that can create issues in their young spines and nervous systems. They are sitting at school desks for extended periods of time, and their developing spines are supporting heavy backpacks.

Additionally, many children are either starting sports and increasing their activity, or spending more time in front of electronic media. The potential for the development of subluxation is greatly increased.

Chiropractic is the one health profession that deals with the detection and correction of subluxations. Attention to your child’s spine and nervous system is the best way to ensure that he or she grows and develops properly.
