Unlock Vibrant Health for Your Child:
Why Parents Trust Us as the Safest Harbor for Pediatric Chiropractic Care
Hey Wonderful Parents, I’m Dr. Natalie, a mom and a fervent advocate for the boundless health of our kiddos. My journey as a chiropractor, specializing in infants and children, has unveiled a world where your child’s vibrant health is not just a dream, but an attainable reality!
Maintaining Your Child’s Joy and Energy: Addressing Silent Threats
Kiddos generally express a more pure life force energy with far less interference than adults. This is why if children are expressing anything other than energy, joy and interest in life, we as parents take notice. We instinctively know that something is wrong.
Aside from scraped knees, bumps and bruises, kids aren’t supposed to experience aches and pains. They also should NEVER seem habitually anxious or depressed. If kids are experiencing any of these physical or emotional pains, then it’s a sign that something is interfering with their expression of optimal health.
Looking Beyond Medications: Addressing the Root of Your Child’s Discomfort
Nowadays most parents are aware that medications just cover up symptoms and don’t actually fix anything. At best, medications just kick the can down the road – at worst, the side effects cause dangerous additional problems that didn’t exist before. Because pediatricians know the dangers of medications, they often avoid prescribing medications to kids and tell parents that their kiddo will “grow out of it.”
The Risks of Ignoring Early Health Warnings in Children
While we appreciate the reluctance to put kids on meds, the truth is that kids DON’T grow out of health issues by ignoring them. Instead what happens is kids just find a way to cope and work around their issues. Unfortunately, as these kiddos grow older, those same issues eventually evolve into bigger and more severe health problems. So if you wait for them to “grow out of it,” sick kids become sick adults.
Embracing Holistic Healing: Natural Wellness for Your Child
The good news is that more and more parents are waking up to the fact that their kids are designed to heal naturally, and are taking a proactive role in addressing their kids’ health early from a holistic perspective. What’s amazing is that while every human body has the potential to heal, the potential for kids to heal is even greater. It’s the ideal time to catch health issues before they become much harder to correct as they grow up.
Childhood Spinal Health: The Key to Wellbeing and Vibrancy
We’ve found that the most common issue found in children is within their spine – even if they don’t have back or neck pain. One of the reasons for this is that little kids fall on their butts and bump their heads all the time (which are the critical anchor points of the spinal cord).
As our kids get older and more coordinated, while they may not fall on their butts as often… they now fall at higher speeds and from higher obstacles, torquing their bodies in all sorts of ways that make us cringe as adults. Although kids are made of rubber, these little traumas often cause torque and tension to get built up within the spinal cord, which are the super delicate nerves inside the spine.
These nerves communicate and send healing energy back and forth from the brain to every muscle, organ and joint inside the body. So if those nerve pathways get interfered with (even mildly), then there is a loss of optimal health expression. That means your kiddo won’t heal like they should.
This also means that serious things like their digestive system, urinary tract, sinuses, ears, tonsils, and lungs can start to have issues. Or what’s super common, is your kid can start getting colds and flus all the time because their immune system isn’t in sync with their brain and body. And certain muscles can start to become weaker and out of balance causing developmental issues like knocked knees, scoliosis, and hunched forward posture.
Battling the Silent Epidemic: Confronting the Stealthy Rise in Childhood Health Issues
Now, trips and falls are super common and have been around since the beginning of time, but that doesn’t account for the astronomical rise in childhood health problems that the younger generations are plagued with. In fact, children are the second highest medicated population behind the elderly! (Yeah, pause and process that alarming statistic for a minute). While there are many factors involved including:
- erosion of the traditional family unit,
- meteoric increases in the administration of childhood vaccinations (52 doses of 15 vaccines before age 6 & 75 doses of 17 vaccines before the age of 18),
- dramatic increases in exposure to environmental toxins in the air, food, and in household products,
- and deterioration of nutrients in food and soil quality
The even bigger issue is the role modern technology like computers, tablets, and phones are playing in our kiddo’s lives (and I’m not even talking about the issues of EMF).
Never before in history have children spent so much time sitting down and being inactive. And to make matters worse (way worse), the position of their heads and necks while looking at their phone is cranked down to the point where their chin is nearly touching their chest! Or their spine is slouched in a chair for hours every day. (And don’t even get me started on backpacks – they’ve become outrageously heavy!…)
All this looking down and slouched posture puts a massive load of tension on the spine and spinal cord. Even with a perfectly healthy spine, this is too much load for way too long. The spinal cord isn’t a rubber band. Nerves aren’t designed to stretch like muscles. So even a little extra tension starts to cause problems, building up distortions within the sheath of the spinal cord that can remain even after your child gets up and starts being active.
Understanding Spinal Stress: Identifying Hidden Health Issues in Children
These spinal cord and nerve signaling distortions can commonly cause things like:
- Anxiety or nervousness
- Ear infections
- Stomach aches
- Constipation / Diarrhea
- Loss of energy
- Getting sick a lot
- Growing Pains
- Feeling depressed
- and ADHD
This is why what we do is so powerful.
We’re addressing issues at the spinal cord level – it’s the deep underlying issue currently plaguing humanity and causing so many different health issues. And because we are dealing with the sensitive structures of the spine, there is no need to do anything aggressive. In fact, we don’t crack, pop, or twist the spine at all – it’s unnecessary, less effective, and often overstimulating.
The sensitive nerves within the spine respond best with gentle, precise input from our hands or using a gentle instrument that creates a quick percussive impulse called the Integrator.
Our technique awakens disconnected areas of your child’s spine, releasing the spinal cord tension from past trauma by working with specific access points along the spine. From there the innate wisdom of the body takes over and naturally re-engages the innate healing mechanisms we are all born with.
