3 Reasons Your Child Needs Chiropractic Care 

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.
