Children around the world grow and thrive without chiropractic care. They still hit milestones, their bodies work well and they can grow without any visible major problems appearing.
As such, a question you will often be asked is – Why is chiropractic so important for kids? and
“Are my kids going to be OK without it?”
This is where it is helpful to focus on the three key points I talk about in today’s video.
How do we know they are OK?
We want to teach our families and parents that a lifetime of wellness begins with the habits we start when we are young.
The exercise we do and don’t do, the toxins our bodies come in contact with, the way our body moves and the stress on our systems, all play a part.
Just because kids are not showing symptoms now, doesn’t mean they are in peak health condition.
Over the years stresses on the systems compound.
Poor posture at 5 may not cause back pain at 5, but can certainly put the child at risk of pain in the future.
How do we know that they are at their best?
Just as chronic illness is becoming more common in society, so is obesity and other health issues like eczema, asthma and ADHD.
There are many things that contribute to the health outcomes of a child.
And we only need to look at anatomy to understand what system needs to be addressed for their body to work at its best and that’s the nervous system.
What will their future hold?
It’s easy to be busy and just get on with things, but planning and attention to detail can mean a big difference in future outcomes.
Just like planning the perfect garden, we need to know what it needs to be at its best, do we want flowers to grow or weeds?
Usually flowers need a lot more care and attention. Just like a garden, the body needs certain essential ingredients to achieve optimal health now and in the future. Chiropractic offers an opportunity to plan for the future, to address long-term health and wellness through choosing a drug less proactive approach to health.
