Infants and Children
Chiropractic care is essential for infants, babies, and children. Think of chiropractic are as you would good nutritional care - always essential for your child's good health.
A spinal checkup could be one of the most important of your child's life. Why? The jumping, falling, running and bumping of a normal childhood often cause vertebral subluxations, with serious health consequences if uncorrected. In addition, the birth process puts tremendous stress on the newborn's spine that could lead to many health problems.

Clinicians and parents have observed often dramatic improvements in the physical, neurological and emotional health of children following chiropractic spinal care. This includes children with learn disabilities, anxiety, concentration and attention problems, hyperactivity, ADD, dyslexia, discipline problems, low IQ and low grades.

There are numerous problems with antibiotic usage for children with ear infections such as allergic reactions, GI upset, antibiotic resistance and destruction of the gut's inteltinal flora leading to yeast proliferation. Tubes int he ears are mostly antibiotic/medical failures with infections returning with 2 months and the tubes can cause hearing loss years later.

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is also known as hyperactivity or attention deficit disorder (ADD). ADHD is a common condition that affects children and adolescents, while ADD is more common in adults.
The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) estimates that 3% to 5% of children have ADHD. Some experts, though, says ADHD may occurs in 8% to 10% of school age children. Experts also question whether kids really outgrow ADHD. What that means is that this disorder may be more common in adults than previously thought.
Children with ADHD generally have problems paying attention or concentrating. They can't seem to follow directions and are easily bored or frustrated with tasks. They also tend to move constantly and are impulsive, not stopping to think before they act. These behaviors are generally common in children. But they occur more often than usual and are more severe in a child with ADHD. Adjustments, and diet changes have obtained great results.

Subluxations in the upper neck and upper thoracic spine have been associated with asthma and when adjusted remarkable results have been achieved in even the most serious conditions. Many testimonials are available.
Only 10% of the nerve function is for pain!
Waiting for pain to get adjusted is a bad ideal. That is like waiting for a cavity before you start brushing your teeth. It takes time for the disc to dry up, bulge and nerve shrinkage to take place. So prevention is the best. Chiropractic is great for getting out of pain, however its awesome for maintaining wellness too.
