Why do children go to the chiropractor?

One study conducted in the United States, identified the 10 most common reasons why children went to the chiropractor.

Those were as follows:

Earache....................................11.3%
Neck pain...............................10.6%
Check-up................................10.3%
Headache...............................8.8%
Upper Respiratory............7.1%
Low back pain....................6.3%
Allergies...................................4.5%
Asthma....................................3.3%
Enuresis (bedwetting).....................3.3%
Thoracic pain.......................3.2%

This list is 70% of the reasons that children see chiropractors. There are many other reasons why children would see a chiropractor. Among the other reasons are: torticollis, colic, insomnia, growing pain, and persistent crying in infants. The normal function or physiology of the body are all controlled by the nervous system. When the bones of the spine are out of alignment ("subluxated") this can cause interference with the nervous system.... which can affect the way our body functions. For example, misaligned bones in the neck can affect the nerves as they go to the ears and slow down the draining of the fluid from the middle ear, causing persistent ear infections. You get to decide if you want to exhaust everything 'natural'... determining "why?" your body (or that of your child's) isn't working right.... Or just leaving treatment to the symptoms only. That's up to you.

If you would like a complimentary doctor that works with your chiropractor to get the best results possible, consider a chiropractic wellness practitioner. You won't be disappointed. If you would like more information and how to determine which chiropractor is right for you, call 278-YOST (9678)
