3 Reasons Your Child Needs Chiropractic Care 

Posted in General Chiropractic on December 20, 2016

Have you watched kids playing recently? They are constantly jumping off of things, tripping and falling, and running around. Sometimes, you might wish that you had all their energy. Children’s activity looks so effortless. Their bodies are growing so fast and they are learning so much. It’s hard to keep track of all the important things that they need to succeed. Chiropractic care for kids is something that is easily overlooked. A Clifton Chiropractor can do a great job of keeping your child’s body running well and improve many conditions your child may have. Here are three reasons your child needs chiropractic care:

Growing in a Good Direction

Your child’s spine should be growing in a healthy direction. Just like a tree that grows straight up, it is easier to help that tree grow straight when it is a young sapling than when it grows to a full-fledged adult tree down the road. A child’s spine is no different. Regular chiropractic treatments will help a child’s spine grow straight and in the right direction by adjusting misaligned vertebrae.

Signal Strength

Structurally, it is good for a child’s body that their spine grows straight, but keep in mind that all the information from your brain to other parts of your body flows through your spine. So a spine that is inline will have fewer chances of pinching nerves. A pinched nerve means that the signal going to a part of your body will be weakened. This can be a problem, because it can’t do what it needs to as well. Think of it like your cell phone. When the signal isn’t strong enough, you drop calls and texts. It’s the same way with all the body’s vital organs. They run better when the signal is free to travel from the brain to the organs it controls.

Chiropractic Heals Common Conditions

Since nerves deal with every part of your body, freeing them helps improve body function by increasing signal strength. This means that common conditions that affect children can be healed by adjusting the spine so that it doesn’t pinch the nerves. Here are some of the conditions that chiropractic treatments can help remedy.


The developing sacrum is in three parts until it fuses together in the mid-twenties. Because of this, the sacrum is susceptible to trauma during the time that children are learning to walk. Pressure to the sacrum from falling can cause misalignment, which leads to bladder control problems.


Chiropractic care has been shown to improve overt behavior activity, autonomy in activity, and hyperactivity.

Asthma and Breathing

Chiropractic treatment helps increase lung capacity, as well as improving muscle strength for the respiratory system. Restoring normal nerve function for your respiratory system reduces symptoms caused by asthma and allergies.

Ear Infections

Chiropractic care helps reduce reoccurring ear infections. Studies have shown that there is a strong correlation between chiropractic care and ear infections being resolved.

The Best Treatment

These are just a few of the conditions that chiropractic treatments can help improve. To experience the improvement for your children, you’ll need a chiropractor who is experienced in working with children. At the Chiropractic Center at Styertowne, we know you want the best chiropractic care for your children. We are certified in pediatric care and would love to improve your child’s health and wellbeing with chiropractic treatments. Give us a call to schedule an appointment.


What Are the Benefits of Newborn Chiropractic Care

Benefits of Newborn Chiropractic Care? | The Chiropractic Center at StyertowneYou may think that chiropractic adjustments would be too much for your infant, but the truth is that chiropractors use very gentle techniques to adjust newborns. Treatments are nothing like the back-cracking that you would normally associate with adult chiropractic care.
Pressure applied to a newborn during a treatment is not more than you would use to comfortably push on an eye. This gentle care is vital during development. It is at the beginning of their life that newborns need treatment the most. Going to a Clifton Chiropractor is a great idea for the health and development of your newborn.

Head and Spine

The process of birth naturally puts stress on the head and spine. Cranial bones can become misaligned during birth, which can in turn cause problems with your baby’s jaw that affect breastfeeding.

The spine can have subluxations, which are misaligned vertebrae that can interfere with nerve pulse. Chiropractic treatments will realign these bones. This is especially important because the greatest amount of spinal elongation occurs as your newborn grows during the first year. Let’s look at some positive effects of chiropractic for newborns (more…)

Flu Vaccine | The Chiropractic Center at StyertowneAccording to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “The following substances are found in flu vaccines: antibiotics, egg protein, formaldehyde, human aborted fetal apparatus (dead human tissue), monosodium glutamate (MSG), and thimerosal (mercury).” In addition to these in potentially harmful substances, flu vaccines contain many other toxic or hazardous ingredients:

  • Thimerosal – contains mercury and is linked to autism and other brain injury. Side effects and danger are too numerous to mention.
  • Aluminum – a neurotoxin that has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease. Side effects and danger are too numerous to mention.
  • Formaldehyde – Symptoms of low-level exposure include runny nose, sore throat, cough, dermatitis, sleeping difficulties, headache, fatigue, breathing difficulties, sinus irritation, chest pain, frequent nausea, bronchitis, and decreased lung capacity. Your reaction to the flu vaccine is probably from formaldehyde!
  • Phenol (carbolic acid) – For reasons why you want to call a poison control center upon ingestion of this poison.
  • Polysorbate 80 – Allergic reaction like sneezing, coughing, swelling, wheezing, shortness of breath, skin rashes, itching and pain: gastrointestinal problems like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea; heart and circulatory problems like abnormal heart rhythm, heart attack, stroke; fertility problems like infertility in women; tumor and cancer growth
  • Ethylene glycol (antifreeze) – can cause too much calcium in the blood which can lead to kidney stones and kidney insufficiency, metabolized into glycolic acid and can cause profound acidosis in the body
  • Betapropiolactone – a disinfectant
  • Nonoxynol – used to kill or stop growth of STDs, but can cause allergic reactions in 3-5 percent of the population
  • Octoxinol 9 – a vaginal spermicide that can cause chills, confusion, dizziness, fever; lightheadedness, muscle aches, sunburn-like skin rash that is followed by peeling of the skin.
  • Neomycin, gentamycin – antibiotics
