Maintain Your Child's Health Through Wellness Checks at Align
At Align Health & Wellness, we are very passionate about treating your little ones and making sure your kids are set up with the best possible start to life through pediatric chiropractic care. We find that many subluxations patterns (disruptions in the spinal alignment) start in-utero – and most from the birth process. When a baby is growing in the mother for 9 months, he/she tends to develop a position that they favor (every mom knows where their babies were).
Then there is the birth process. It is the most traumatic thing that humans go through, it’s a good thing that we don’t remember it. An ever bigger problem is that there are many more interventions being used with delivery. On average, a baby experiences 80 pounds of pressure when being pulled by their head as they are delivering! Just think – if someone were to grab your newborn baby two days after they were born by the head and pull them, you would be pretty upset – and that’s not something to leave unchecked. A recent medical study found that greater than 80% of newborns have a C1 subluxation. We believe that getting children checked by a chiropractor at birth is vital for proper nervous system functioning throughout life.
The majority of a child’s brain is developed in the first three years of life, so it is important that we support the system that aids in brain growth and development. In fact, many of the children and families that come to see us do not have pain or any complaints. They visit Align to help PREVENT colds, ear infections, ADHD, etc. by maintaining their health through regular chiropractic care. It is a lot easier, cheaper and less time consuming to prevent issues/complaints than to treat them. If you have a newborn, toddler or older children that you would like to get checked, please contact us or give us a call!
