Help your children get and stay healthy

girlEven before children arrive into the world, they often deal with improper positioning in the womb. This alone can place an enormous amount of stress and tension on their muscles and forming bones. Even the most natural birth can put further stresses on a young body. It has been reported that in births that require doctor intervention (forceps, suction or traction), often show some sort of neck injury.

It’s vital to start out life with proper communication from the brain to the body as children rapidly grow and change. Healthy kids stay healthy.

The very experience of childhood presents challenges that often translate into nerve interference. Consider a handful of such challenges that potentially could lead to body imbalance:

  • Learning to walk, falling down or jumping
  • Playground accidents and tumbles
  • Contact sports
  • Ill-fitting footwear

Signs of body imbalance in a child can show up as any of the following:

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Bedwetting
  • Breathing issues
  • Colic
  • Ear infections/ Ear aches
  • GERD
  • Lung problems
  • Tonsillitis
  • Torticollis (stiff neck associated with muscle spasm)
  • Or there may not be symptoms at all!

Consider this: The average child, by the age of 5 years old, will have experienced over two thousand falls, ten percent of which would be considered serious.

Protecting your children’s health

Just like with adults, when irritation to a child’s nerve system is cleared, the body has the ability to heal. The parents of many of our clients report that their children seem more balanced, have better attention spans, perform better in school and sports, make fewer trips to the pediatrician and use fewer medications. Their children are healthier. It’s really that simple.
