Since the recent increase of youtube clips showing Chiropractors adjusting babies and children, the media and medical profession has slammed the safety and effectiveness of Chiropractic for children.
The majority of this bad press is not based on any factual evidence, just bullying propaganda that is potentially scaring parents from utilising one of the most effective and safe methods of helping your child maximise their health and potential.
In my experience as a Chiropractor and in our practice (when working on babies and children) we have seen amazing changes in conditions such as as colic, headaches, injuries, growing pains, feeding difficulties, clumsiness, reflux, misshapen skulls, recurrent ear infections and more. If you ask the majority of the children, they can’t wait to come for their adjustment and the most common feedback we get from parents is that their child is so relaxed afterwards and sleeps very well.
Please understand that Chiropractic does not treat any or cure any of these symptoms, what I do as a Chiropractor (and what any chiropractor does) is very simple. We simply remove or reduce potential neural irritation or blockages between the brain and the body using gentle spinal and cranial adjustments. The goal of this is to allow the body to function the way it was designed to – without interference. The reason Chiropractic has survived all of the attacks over many years is because it works. And especially so for children.
For everything you need to know regarding Chiropractic and children, please check out this clip from Dr Glenn Maginness– a well respected pediatric Chiropractor and educator for more than 30 years. He shares the most researched, up-to-date and informative information to help you make informed decisions regarding your child’s health and wellbeing.
