The TRUTH about Kids and Chiropractic
One of the toughest things about being a parent is seeing your child sick or suffering and not being able to do anything about it. In today’s healthcare model most parents will end up taking their child to the doctor or give them some type of over the counter medication. Unfortunately, all these drugs do is mask symptoms or make the child “feel” like they are better. It’s frustrating that all of these drugs and medications our children are taking don’t actually cure them of anything.
Even with this knowledge, we continue to use this “band-aid solution” approach to our kid’s health. Children with headaches, allergies, asthma, earaches, and early incidences of neck or back pain are regularly prescribed painkillers, antihistamines or antibiotics to try and numb or cover the pain and symptoms. Again, while this approach may ease the child’s suffering temporarily, it does not address the root cause of the problem so that it can be corrected and prevented in the future.
Our goal is to address the underlying cause of these health issues we see in children today. With regular chiropractic care children can have proper nerve function, which allows their body to express 100% of its health potential.
