A nice write up from Well Adjusted. This Australian-based chiropractic website focuses on children’s health issues. Many people can’t understand why parents bring their children to see a chiropractor.
“What happened to that kids back” people will ask when they see a child leave the office. The reason I tell them is because their parents want them to be be healthy or remain that (though I really want to tell them the kid is the only 3 year old longshoreman in town).
The nervous system is the ‘Master Controller’The nervous system is the master controller of our body and if its communication channels become fuzzy, distorted or damaged then we experience all sorts of communication errors. For babies and children, this ineffective communication may play out as colic or irritability, an inability to suckle and breastfeed, poor sleep, developmental delays, digestion issues, asthma, behavioural problems, low energy, inability to concentrate, headaches, etc – the list is endless. In fact, regardless of what the end result or symptom may be, all roads lead back to the body’s ability to self-regulate and function at a peak level.
