Most of you have probably seen the ongoing advertising campaign for a regional hospital: The hospital’s doctors indicate that they have so much trust in the place, that’s where they and their children receive treatment for a variety of medical conditions.
Well, I am happy to say that I feel the same way about chiropractic care, and that’s why I prescribe chiropractic for my loved ones — including my children.
My children are now adults, but they grew up receiving chiropractic adjustments. Both of them played sports, so chiropractic — with its focus on ensuring that the entire musculoskeletal system is working properly — helped them to stay healthy and recover more quickly from athletic injuries.
But even if your child isn’t an athlete, normal daily activities — like playing at recess or using the computer — may cause many symptoms including back and neck pain, stiffness, soreness or discomfort. The good news is, chiropractic can help children of all ages — from babies through teenagers. (Research has shown it is an effective treatment for chronic childhood ear infections.)
And, because chiropractic is natural — no drugs or surgery involved — it doesn’t include the side effects sometimes associated with traditional medical treatment. That’s a plus for many parents concerned about their child’s health, and I know it always made sense to me — wouldn’t you want to try conservative treatment first, before giving your child medications or consenting to surgery?
As I tell my patients, chiropractic care can help anyone with a spine — regardless of your age and stage in life.
So, if you have a family member that could benefit from chiropractic care, call our office today for an appointment.
