Many patients that see kids in the office wonder what back problems they are being treated for. The reality is that these kids parents understand that subluxations occur at early ages and limit their kids potential. Yes, chiropractic is beneficial for the children that have ear infections, colic, chronic illness and other maladies. Most parents understand the benefits of chiropractic care and want the best for their kids. If the child’s innate intelligence is limited by subluxation then how can they really be living their life at full potential? How many falls have your kids had? Do they have proper posture, carry a backpack that only weighs 15% of their bodyweight, sit correctly in school, while texting, during dinner? All of these activities have consequences good or bad depending on how your innate adapts to the stresses. (See upcoming blogs about posture) So how healthy are your children? Most commonly parents answer they don’t have any symptoms so they must be healthy. Most people don’t realize that pain is the last indicator of health. One of the best indicators of health is posture. Posture is reflective of your nerve systems ability to adapt to its environment. If it’s crooked then your nerve system is stressed incorrectly and as a result sending the wrong test message to the body. Surface EMG is another great indicator of analyzing the electrical communication and seeing if there are any blocks(subluxations). If your children have had slips and falls, improper posture, and haven’t had a chiropractic analysis then it’s time. After all aren’t you responsible for your childs health?
