Pediatric Chiropractic Care in La Crescent
Children grow, heal, and change at a rapid rate. Beyond pain and symptoms, a state of well-being is achieved when our bodies are functioning, performing, integrating, and processing optimally. This is true in children as well.
Starting with the birthing process, your child experiences an enormous amount of stress on his spine. And as your child grows and develops, the likelihood of spinal subluxations only increases as his body begins to integrate and process all the new information. Learning to roll, sit, crawl, and walk are all developmental milestones and important stages in a child's life to have his spine and nervous system checked. As your child becomes more mobile and active in regular childhood activities, small yet significant spinal misalignments may occur. As subluxations build up or are prolonged in the spine, it becomes more difficult for your body to properly integrate incoming information, which is when different symptoms may manifest. Chiropractic care can help your child's spine and nervous system adapt to symptoms related to colic, reflux, constipation, immune dysfunction, bedwetting, ear infections, allergies, headaches, neck and back pain, learning disorders, attention spectrum disorders, among many others. Ultimately, chiropractic care can help children adapt to these stressors so their bodies are functioning at a higher level.
In childhood, we develop the foundation for the rest of our lives, so it's important to give your child the best start possible!
