What Are Subluxations?
Subluxations can reduce the quality of life for these children, as they are not functioning at their optimum best. Signs of this can include; sleeping problems, bowel irritability, earaches, ADHD and many more.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Benefits of chiropractic care for children may include; decreased occurrences of cold and flu, being happier and healthier, less spinal degeneration problems as an adult, stimulating brain activity and development, and an increase in emotional balance and feeling of general wellbeing.
Chiropractors use gentle, effective techniques that are adapted specifically for children depending on their age, size and physical structure.
Having your child checked regularly, particularly during growing stages, will help their bodies develop to their best. Some added benefits could include: helping a range of childhood conditions such as colic, asthma, recurrent chest/ear infections, poor posture and behavioural problems.
The overall benefit of stimulating brain activity and development creates a happy, healthy young adult.
A Typical Session
A typical session for a child includes the adjustment fitted to their own personal needs (whether a massage is needed or which type of adjustments will suit best for the individual), while they wait there are plenty of colouring in books, picture books, Legos, reading books and various other toys to pass the time as mentioned below.
We have an oil burner (out of a child’s reach) that emits a calming and peaceful aroma throughout the day, we also play family friendly music that both the adults and the kids can enjoy. In the waiting room there are colouring books and picture books available (we also have coloured paper for creative doodlers). In the adjusting room we have Lego, soft toys and various other toys for the children while their sibling and/or parent is being adjusted.
