This week in the state of Minnesota, we celebrate Chiro Kids Week! This event is organized to help educate the community on the importance of children getting adjusted.

Did you know that chiropractic adjustments can provide a safe and effective approach to raise the quality of life for infants, children and teenagers?

You may be asking yourself, why would you bring your child to the chiropractor if they don’t have any neck or back pain?

A common perception about health and wellbeing is that when your body has no signs of pain or symptoms, all is well within. But, how well the body functions is based on more than the absence of disease or symptoms.

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” 

If we change our approach from reactive to proactive in the realm of wellbeing for infants, children and teenagers, regular chiropractic care for children is easier to comprehend. 

So, why be proactive with our children’s wellbeing with chiropractic care? Because of stress!

Children encounter stress from the day they are born, so much stress that it can breakdown the normal physiology of a child’s spine into a state of disharmony without the parents even being aware of it.

The objective of chiropractic adjustments for children is to reduce vertebral subluxation so the body can have increased resistance to stress, allowing for more wellbeing within. Regular chiropractic adjustments for children can be a proactive choice to enhancing the quality of life and wellbeing within their resilient bodies.

The information in our articles are not intended to diagnose, mitigate or prescribe the use of any technique as a form of treatment for any physical conditions, symptoms or diseases. Directly consult with a qualified health care professional for any chiropractic or medical advice. In addition to the benefits of chiropractic care, one should also be aware of the existence of some risks. Risks associated with some chiropractic care may include soreness, musculoskeletal sprain/strain, and fracture. In addition, there have been reported cases of stroke associated with chiropractic care. Research and scientific evidence does not establish a cause and effect relationship between chiropractic care and the occurrence of stroke; rather studies indicate that people may be consulting chiropractors when they are in the early states of a stroke. In essence, there is a stroke already in process. However, you are being informed of this reported risk.
