This summer has been absolutely beautiful! But with the weather starting to cool down, it means summer is coming to an end and school is about to start. Hopefully you and your family took advantage of the summer break to make some amazing memories. For a lot of children, the summer becomes a time to be active and adventurous, whether it’s on vacation or in their own backyard. But regardless, one thing to note is that KIDS OF ALL AGES FALL, especially at younger ages. As a child develops and learns to be mobile, falling is a natural part of the process. This is why having your child see a Chiropractor as the develop is imperative. The spine is prone to changes when it is acted upon by trauma, whether that is mental, chemical, and most especially physical trauma, such as falls. Knowing that the spine is important for the function of the nervous system, misalignments caused by falls can affect the health of your young one as they grow.
It’s easy to get caught up on a fall as a single incident. And may not seem like a big deal if your child can walk away from it. But imagine combining all the isolated incidents even as a baby. All of these can add up and cause undue stress on the spine at an early age. Similar to an office worker who has continuous, daily strain on the back from sitting down at their desk all day. All these repetitive stresses can eventually add up, affecting the spine and it’s normal movement/alignment and in turn affecting the function of the nervous system. Don’t wait for a big, isolated injury to prompt you to seek help. Compound stresses add up and do their damage too, which can in turn affect your child’s health.
The benefit of the Chiropractic adjustment is to detect and correct the changes that these stresses are adding onto your spine. Additionally, seeing a Chiropractor on a regular basis can help prevent these changes from happening due to unexpected traumas such as falls, no matter how big or small. As a parent, you can have a greater impact on the growth and development of your little ones, so that they may be able to be at their best as they get older. Having your child checked at a young age can help make sure they don’t carry these changes into their adult years, especially when it becomes more difficult to improve.
