Children and Chiropractic Care

by Auger Family Chiropractic

Most people would not think of chiropractic care for their child. Their rationale being, “My kid does not have a back ache so what benefit could chiropractic possibly offer?” Well, you may be very surprised.

Chiropractic is based on the physiological fact that the brain controls and regulates every function that you and your children’s bodies perform. The brain regulates everything from breathing to digestion to hormonal balance, just to name a few. The brain uses the nervous system to send information to all the different organs, which is how the brain controls and regulates them. It just so happens that approximately 90 percent of all your nerves travel through your spine. Therein lies the connection between the spine and the functioning of the body: the nervous system.

The following studies indicate the usefulness of chiropractic care with children.

In a study published in March 2018 in the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health, Chiropractic, a 10-year-old girl diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder who had complaints of neck and back pain, head banging, insomnia and uncontrolled behaviors was examined and found to have vertebral subluxations. Following chiropractic care the child was more relaxed, her outbursts ceased, she had a calmer demeanor and her sleep improved.

In this study, published in August 2018 in the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health, Chiropractic, children who were under chiropractic care from birth experienced healthy childhoods without suffering from typical childhood illnesses, and their health was reported to be better than other children of the same age.
