If you are a parent, you understand the importance of teaching your children healthy habits. It’s a huge responsibility to help them to learn how to eat right, exercise regularly, and give their body the vitamins and nutrients it needs to thrive. But what you may not know is that spinal health is also incredibly important to the health of the overall body, for both children and adults. The spine is the foundation of the body and should be well taken care of. Chiropractic care from a Round Rock chiropractor ensures proper spinal health. Children with excellent spinal health are better able to function and grow as they should. Additionally, children who are under regular chiropractic care from a young age are more likely to grow up to be healthier adults.
Chiropractic Adjustments for Children
Many parents may first be concerned about the safety of chiropractic adjustments for their children. Rest assured that chiropractic adjustments are very safe and extremely beneficial for children of all ages. In fact, children that don’t receive adjustments may have health conditions that they carry with them into adulthood. In today’s day and age, children are often using technological devices such as tablets or iPads. When children are staring down at technology, this can lead to a condition called “tech neck.” It can lead to stiff muscles and neck pain. Some children also have stiff neck problems from birth due to positioning inside the uterus or a difficult birth. A case study published about children with congenital torticollis, or stiff neck muscles, found that regular chiropractic adjustments relieve stiff muscles and helped children hold their heads in the proper position. If these children had not received chiropractic adjustments, their neck problems could have caused significantly more problems in the future, such as heartburn, headaches, and thyroid problems. Misalignments of the spine and neck can cause dysfunction in children that carries into adulthood. Thankfully, Round Rock chiropractor Dr. Aaron Cain can remove misalignments so that children can experience health from an early age and carry that health into adulthood.
