MONDAY MORNING HEALTH TIP – Chiropractic Research in Children

Stay Connected with great weekly info
Chiropractic Research in Children

Dr. Smith believes that the doctor-patient relationship is a partnership.  When fully informed, patients are better able to make choices that propel them toward optimal health.  That’s why, at the end of each year, Dr. Smith reviews research on chiropractic and shares the most cutting-edge studies with patients.  Part I of this series provided an overview of research involving adults.  Now, in part II, Dr. Smith reviews chiropractic research involving children.

  • Chiropractic may help kids with developmental delay.
  • Chiropractic helps babies with trouble breastfeeding.
  • Chiropractic care may resolve bed-wetting.
  • Adjustments may prevent behavioural problems associated with colic.
  • Chiropractic helps moms avoid migraine medication during pregnancy.
  • Vertebral subluxations linked with headache in pre-teens.
  • Chiropractic is safe and effective for kids.

Many of these studies focused on the role of vertebral subluxations in wellness.  Vertebral subluxations are areas in the spine where motion is restricted or vertebrae are out of alignment.  Dr. Smith corrects vertebral subluxations using gentle maneuvers called chiropractic adjustments.  In addition, chiropractors teach patients how to prevent the physical, chemical and emotional causes of vertebral subluxations.  This focus on prevention makes chiropractic unique.
