Has your child ever complained of a nagging headache? If so, he or she isn’t alone. Research shows that headaches are as much of a problem for children as adults — not only because of the pain, but also because of the effect on a child’s quality of life.
- Headaches lead to missing school
- Hurts social interaction
- Linked with depression
- Skipped sleep
- Headache sufferers do worse in school
Of course, your youngster can’t opt out of school to avoid headaches; so this school year, vow to eradicate headaches before classes start. Rather than masking symptoms with over-the-counter (OTC) drugs, which are loaded with potential side effects, choose chiropractic care — a proven all-natural solution for pediatric headaches.
Doctors of chiropractic focus on prevention. First, they gently and carefully examine a child’s spine for vertebral subluxations. Then use highly specialized and gentle maneuvers called chiropractic adjustments tailored to match a child’s body size and spine.
Take a proactive approach and schedule an appointment today, before school begins.
