As the father of an active daughter, I have experienced the healing powers of chiropractic care for children. Falls, headaches, illnesses, allergies, you name it, my daughter has benefited from the quick results a chiropractic adjustment provides her from the everyday occurrences of a normal childhood.
Too often, we focus on what ails the aging adult body, forgetting that kids need chiropractic, too! Through regular spinal adjustments, kids can ward off illness, boost their immune system, improve athletic performance, and increase energy and focus. Just as with adults, a healthy spine is the key to a healthy child. Perhaps more importantly, because children’s nervous and immune systems react so quickly to chiropractic care, they may see improvement far quicker than an adult!
The school year is quickly approaching, and with that comes backpacks, fall sports, and the return of seasonal colds and flus. Chiropractic care addresses all of these issues, head on. An aligned spine can better support the weight of a (properly!) worn backpack.
It can also increase athletic performance by removing subluxations (misalignments of the vertebrae) that interfere with nervous system communication to the muscles, lungs, and heart (and every system of the body). For any football player, chiropractic care is essential to lessen the recovery time of minor injuries sustained from practice and games. In fact, ANY athlete, marching band member, coach, spectator or referee can benefit from chiropractic care as a result of the fall sport season!
Perhaps most importantly, chiropractic care enables the nervous system to boost immunity to seasonal colds and flu. And if the child still becomes sick, chiropractic care at the onset of illness can drastically lessen the duration of the cold or flu, allowing them to return to school sooner.
Treating families together is something not only I, but my entire staff, enjoy. The benefits chiropractic care imparts to every family member, from birth to 100, is important to everyone at Senara. We want your entire family to be well, so there is no better way to start the school year on the right foot than to bring your child in for a chiropractic assessment and adjustments. Whether your child is new to our practice, or returning to us off after a few weeks, months, or years, there is no better tool in a student’s box than an aligned spine for a successful school year.
To schedule your child’s chiropractic appointment, or to ask any questions about how chiropractic can benefit your child, please don’t hesitate to call 309.693.9600 and speak with one of my staff.
Looking forward to seeing you and your family on the adjusting table this school year!
