Chiropractic For Children And Infants In Maple Grove MN
Welcome to the section of our site dealing with the health issues of infants, children and teens.
This area provides parents with useful information necessary in raising a healthy family. Healthy habits are formed, or not formed, at a very early age. Thus, we urge parents to take an active role in their children's health and teach their children through healthy examples.
Come back often as we update, add and improve upon the site regularly. Also, if you have any suggestions or comments, please send them our way.
I’ll start by explaining why infants need chiropractic treatment. Delivery can be an extremely violent process. On average, the amount of pressure exerted on an infant’s spine during delivery is about 60lbs of pressure (from the doctor pulling). Yes, you read that right. Decapitation happens at about 120lbs of pressure.
When a mom has to lie on her back to deliver she is going to need some help. This is why I am not a big fan of how deliveries are done in most of our Western hospitals.
Because 80% of us get our spine out of alignment (subluxated) at birth, chiropractic is needed. It only takes a misalignment in the spine (subluxation) the width of a hair to block as much as 60% of nerve flow. When nerve flow is blocked (vital nerve flow that flows from the brain to the body) in the spine from a subluxation then the body starts to shut down. This is when symptoms start.
Many of the symptoms/problems I see as a result of subluxations from delivery cause:
- Ear Infections
- Breathing Issues
Children need chiropractic too. Whether it’s the falling down stage of learning to walk or the play and sports stage of life, there are many opportunities in your child’s development for them to go out of normal spinal alignment. Whatever stage of development your child is going through they can benefit from chiropractic treatment.
If you understand that subluxations decrease nerve flow from the brain to the body and this lowers immunity and starts disease then why wouldn’t you want your child healthy? Either ignore this fact and hope for the best or keep your children healthy with regular chiropractic check-ups. Just like going to the dentist, chiropractic should be a part of your child’s health care team.
