The facts are in. The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) recently completed a groundbreaking study that reports these significant improvements in kids who receive chiropractic care:
- Improved sleeping
- Improved behavior and attitude
- Improved immune system function
How does this happen? Chiropractic care, after all, does not directly treat conditions or diseases. But because it does help correct interference with the nervous system, a chiropractic adjustment affects the overall body function, and therefore optimizes overall health and well being.
Other symptoms for which many parents have noted marked improvement in their kids include:
- Ear infections
- Digestive issues
- Many chronic illnesses
- Sports injuries
In addition, kids have many stresses throughout their growing-up years and problems with their spines readily occur. (Physical stress: think playground falls, sports injuries, heavy school bags. Chemical stress: think food dyes, less than perfect diets, environmental allergies. Emotional stress: think family stress, school stress, friend stress, etc.)
Dr. Mara actually begins working with children when they are newborns. Because a baby can experience a degree of trauma during labor, interferences to the nervous system – called "subluxations" – often result. Dr. Mara gently checks and adjusts the newborn, reducing subluxations, opening the pathways and allowing for greater health function.
Chiropractic care for kids is safe, effective and natural and has been helping children for over 100 years. It allows them to get healthy and stay healthy, while providing a course of wellness that they will be able to maintain throughout their lives.
