Chiropractic keeps your kids healthy!

Chiropractic keeps your kids healthy!Chiropractic taps into the innate healing powers that lies within us from birth. We are here to keep that connection flowing for children. With a chiropractic adjustment, a child's body can do its own healing without drugs or surgery. The pressure and chiropractic techniques that we use are always age appropriate. We'll treat your child as our own – with love and patience. We have a kid-friendly space and know how important it is for you and your child to feel comfortable. Once children have experienced the power of chiropractic, they're more in tune with their body and look forward to their chiropractic visits. Kids love visiting and you will too!

Does My Child Need Chiropractic Care?
The answer is Yes! An interference-free nervous system is the key to health. It is the coordination of the brain and nervous system that guides our bodies to heal, grow and repair. Most children have experienced hundreds of traumas to the body in one way or another. Whether it was a traumatic birth, a tumble down the stairs, a bicycle accident, a sports injury, etc. – these traumas can go undetected for years! The result: a body that doesn't function at its best. You do not need to have pain or symptoms to get checked by a chiropractor. Chiropractors can detect and correct any interference and get your kids set up for a lifetime of health and wellness.

Common Childhood Conditions
Did you know that when your child gets a fever, that is actually our amazingly smart body trying to kill the bacteria or the virus? So often when we over-medicate, we actually end up stopping our child's body from getting well. Thus, prolonging the healing process and increasing the likelihood of additional side affects like constipation or nausea. Chiropractic is a new way of thinking for modern parents who are tired of over-medicating their child. It can help with asthma, ear infections, developmental delays, sleep disorders, breastfeeding issues, and even the common cold. Many parents have been amazed at the improvements they see in their babies and children following chiropractic adjustments.

Is Chiropractic Care Safe for Children?
The answer is Yes! We focus on turning on the body's natural healing power. We let nature take its course, or help nature along when needed. The body knows what to do… it is smarter than you or any doctor. Inspire Me starts kids early because we believe this!

Natural chiropractic care for children is just as safe as it is for adults. Both infants and children have been treated using chiropractic methods since such treatments began – dating back to 1895 in Greece. In fact, chiropractic care-whether for adults or children-is the third most popular form of health care in the U.S.

Our adjustments are gentle on your child. For children, an adjustment is a gentle pressure-like force meant to guide the body in the correct direction. The amount of pressure and specific chiropractic techniques used during an infant's or child's chiropractic adjustment will vary with his or her age. We assure you that we will treat your child with a light touch. That's all that is needed!

At Inspire Me, we promote family wellness as a new way of life. And this wellness starts young, before we put years of wear and tear on our bodies without adjustment or correction. Kids love getting adjusted because they notice that they feel great. Children look forward to visits at our office as they grow and experience life. Our main goal is to provide chiropractic care for healthy kids. And healthy kids make a healthy family.
Why Does My Child Need Chiropractic Care?

We encourage you to start bringing your children for chiropractic care early - even within the first few months of life. During gestation, babies are cramped in an increasingly tighter space. And a vaginal delivery can be stressful on the baby's spine and other joints. Interference in the nervous system is not something that your OBGYN, pediatrician or family MD checks. That's the job of a chiropractor, and it's why chiropractic care is so important.

Many parents have been thrilled at the improvements that they see in their babies following infant chiropractic adjustments. A natural adjustment can turn a colicky baby to one who is full of smiles or an infant who has difficulty sleeping to one who sleeps up to seven hours a night!

At Inspire Me, we want to help reduce parents' questions and worries. Identifying illness in children, especially small children, can be challenging because the smaller the child, the less they are able to express how they feel, or be specific about any health issues. So for parents, childhood health can often become a guessing game.

Regular chiropractic care is essential for infants, toddlers, kids, and teens throughout all of their growing years. We keep kids active and strong as their skeletal frame changes. Not only does regular chiropractic care for kids keep them healthy, it also has a huge potential to prevent disease and dysfunction in the body. We prefer to help children progress through natural methods, rather than using invasive techniques or unnecessary medications.

Your Child's Developing Spine
Wellness care should start early - before we add years of stress on our changing bodies. From the day your child is born, he or she is set on a path for continual development and growth through their formative teenage years and into early adulthood. During this 20-year period, your child's spine is undergoing continual changes – all while supporting a growing frame.

Having your child's spine checked beginning at an early age is essential for optimal development. As your child learns to walk and run, he or she will probably experience numerous falls, which may result in strains and sprains. Identifying these issues at an early age is critical for the proper development of your child's spine. Many postural problems and back pain that we experience as adults can be traced to childhood falls or even a traumatic birth.

The spine and brain are the center of your child's entire nervous system. The bones in your child's spine respond to the stresses of growth as well as outward physical stresses of being picked up incorrectly, falling or even sleeping in awkward positions. It's especially important for bone and muscle growth to stay in balance during the many growth spurts your child will experience. Your child's bones and nerves need proper joint motion for optimal development and communication.
