It is safe to say that our children undergo stress on their bodies on a regular basis. The first stress that many children receive is from the birthing process itself, followed by the hundreds to thousands of falls and accidents, sitting in school all day, sports traumas, posture challenges, and smart phone use coupled with emotional and chemical stressors to name just a few. These stressors can lead to symptoms such as aches, pains, and headaches; but also lowered immune system function, digestive issues, ADD/ADHD, autism and countless others. Many parents bring their babies in a few days after birth to have them checked for nerve interference. This is crucial since the birthing process can be very traumatic to their delicate spines and nervous systems. We also see infants with colic, infantile reflux, constipation, and immune system problems. At Innate Chiropractic, we offer a natural option by gently and precisely removing the neurological stress, and improving structure to help children thrive and become the best versions of themselves. Nothing gives us greater joy than to watch their young lives change. Due to our results from infants to teens, we have become one of the top 3 largest pediatric offices in the entire northeast region of the United States.
Investigators evaluated 46 children under the age of five with ear infections. A full 93% recovered within 10 days of chiropractic care ( J Manipulative Physiol Ther 1996; 19:169-77). Another study looked at 5 children with recurrent middle ear infections who had been receiving medical treatment for at least six months, but had failed to recover. All the children improved with no more than five visits to their chiropractor (J Clin Chir Ped 1996; 1:66).
In one survey of 132 parents of infants with colic, 91% reported that their babies improved after an average of two to three adjustments (Eur J Chiropr 1985; 33:264-5). Another study of 316 babies with colic found that 94% benefited from chiropractic care (J Manipulative Physiol Ther 1989; 12:281-8).
One experiment enrolled 81 children with asthma. After two months of chiropractic care, 90% of subjects showed a significantly improved quality of life (J Vertebral sublux Res 1997; 1:41-8). And 76.5% of asthma patients in another survey reported benefiting from chiropractic (Bull Eur Chir Union 1978; 26:17-34).
