Why Should My Child See a Chiropractor?

"The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease."

- Thomas Edison 

I believe the combination of Chiropractic and Acupuncture accomplishes much of what is stated above. That’s why I like to utilize those methods together for the best outcomes in treating children in Missouri Valley.


Why Chiropractic for Kids?

Kids are constantly enduring “micro-traumas”. The word “micro-traumas” may sound scary, but we’re talking about natural incidents like falling while learning to walk, bumping heads, or wrestling after watching WWE on TV and thinking they can do the same thing, etc. These adventures are natural for our kids to undertake and yet can be the source of stress on their spine causing subluxations that may adversely affe

 

ct their little bodies. Having children see a chiropractor for care can not only help alleviate small problems from becoming big problems, it has also shown to be an extremely effective preventative healthcare approach.

Chiropractic care may help children with things like:

  • Inability to sleepChiropractor Missouri Valley IA James Hoyt Examining Child
  • Recurring ear infections
  • Frequent sickness
  • Crying all day and night
  • Bouts of constipation and diarrhea
  • Breastfeeding issues
  • Colic
  • Asthma
  • Digestive issues
  • Reflux
  • Bedwetting
  • Allergies
  • As well as encourage a child’s optimal brain and nerve development.

Why Acupuncture for Kids?

Many believe acupuncture is just for pain. However, acupuncture actually helps improve the bodies internal communication network that transmits Qi energy throughout the Meridian System in the body. When it is working properly, your body is “ALIVE and HEALTHY”. Think of it this way – how would you operate your car if you had a defective electrical system? You turn your blinker on to turn right and it does not work, consequently causing an accident. Or, worse yet, your engine isn’t firing correctly, and it won’t run! Communication and coordination of your body’s cells, tissues and organs is vital for life.

Acupuncture helps children and teens with a wide range of issues, including:

Getting to the point

Acupuncture is one of the most popular natural healthcare options available. Both modern research and ancient history give acupuncture an impressive record for safety and effectiveness. But some people hesitate to seek acupuncture treatment due to fear of needles. Laser Acupuncture utilizes laser light at specific wavelengths to stimulate Acupuncture points but without the pain of needles. Yes, that’s right, it’s non-invasive, NO PAIN! No risk of infection.

It’s essential to understand that chiropractic and acupuncture when used as a holistic approach, works in a manner to improve how your body functions rather than just treat symptoms. For example, there are over 320,000 known viruses that can infect humans. if you have a strong immune system you fight off a cold virus instead of “catching” it! Your body is self-regulating. In other words, it will take care of itself when it’s healthy. By relieving stress on the nervous system, chiropractic permits the immune system to function more effectively.
