Everyone wants the best for their child, but at times it can be difficult to know what to do to achieve that goal. Luckily for the parents of Scarborough, Abbey Lane Chiropractic & Massage Therapy Clinic’s chiropractors offer pediatric services to improve the overall health of their children’s muscular, skeletal and nervous systems.
Benefits of Chiropractic Pediatric Services
There are many benefits associated with chiropractic care for babies and children. Here are some of the most common reasons the people of Scarborough come to see us:
Asthma: A fair amount of asthma related problems are due to issues with the muscles and nerves. Muscles are responsible for taking air into the lungs, and nerves are responsible for the impulses which allow different parts of the body to work together to take a proper breath. Chiropractors are able to realign the spine and thus the nerves and muscles connected to the rib cage and breathing. When realigned, the body is able to breathe in as it should. Even if there are other factors involved in asthma, chiropractic adjustments will often reduce the frequency and intensity of asthma attacks.
Digestive Issues: The nervous system is responsible for proper functioning of the digestive system. If the spine is not in its proper alignment the nerves can be inflamed or under pressure, leading to issues with digestion. By correcting the spine, a chiropractor can relieve stress on the body’s internal organs, improving nerve signals and digestion.
Boost Immune System: If the nervous system is compromised due to pressures within the muscles or spine, the immune system can be directly affected. The nervous system sends impulses to the brain, telling it where it needs to send antibodies to fight off infections, bacteria and viruses. Chiropractic care can relieve pressure and other problems that compromise the nervous system, thus improving the immune system and the body’s ability to heal itself.
Encourages Good Posture: Newborns go through a great deal of stress during the birthing process. This can result in bones being moved out of their optimal position which can lead to both seen and unseen difficulties during the child’s development. A chiropractor will be able to assess if the muscles, bones and spine are in proper alignment and if chiropractic adjustments are necessary.
Colic: Also referred to as irritable baby syndrome, colic occurs when a young baby cries for unknown reasons for three hours a day or more. Many times, the reason for colic is due to discomfort the baby feels from issues with the muscles, bones or nervous system. Having a professional chiropractor examine and manipulate the young infant can remove internal blockages and pressure that cause either pain or an intense amount of sensation.
