Why Chiropractic Care for Children?
Chiropractic care for children offers your family a solid foundation for wellness. Throughout pregnancy, birth, and childhood, the chiropractic lifestyle offers choices and benefits for your child's greater health and well-being.
At Abundant Life Chiropractic it is not unusual to see whole families in the office getting adjusted! Children can be adjusted as soon as they take their first breath of life. Drs. Damian and Angie Artho have both have training in adjusting children. Dr. Angie has taken many post graduate certification courses dealing with adjusting the child's delicate spine and dealing with advanced conditions such as neurosensory disorders and autism. Dr. Angie has also had the priveledge of having other chiropractors bring their children to her because of her advanced work and expertise in dealing with children.
Other conditions that chiropractic can assist with in children include (but are not limited to):
- ear infections
- SPD/PDD and other conditions on the Autism Spectrum
Chiropractic Care is SAFE for children!
The ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) has initiated a ground breaking study on the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic care for children. The preliminary results are outstanding and show that chiropractic care is safe for children. Even more significant is that parents reported three unexpected improvements with their child's care:
- Improved sleeping
- Improved behavior and attitude
- Improved immune system function.
The techniques used to adjust children are very different than those used to treat adults. Often times no more pressure than you would put on your own eyeball with your finger is needed to adjust the child's spine. Drs. Artho have been adjusting their children since the day they were born and weekly since then!
