Children have been getting their spines checked by chiropractors since the early days of the profession. Modern research is showing just how important it is that all children be checked for subluxations and that every person no matter how young, can benefit from a healthy spine.
Several medical researchers have shown that spinal injury and nerve damage (subluxation) can begin as early as the birth process.
Dr. Gotfried Guttman, M.D. found subluxations of the atlas vertebra in the upper neck in over 80% of the infants he examined shortly after birth. He further pointed out that these subluxations were related to lowered resistance to infections especially those of the ears, nose, and throat and saw dramatic improvements when these subluxations were corrected.
Chiropractors in Denmark have found dramatic results with colicky babies when their subluxations were corrected. Other areas where results have been seen are in:
- bed wetting
- attention deficit disorder
- motor abnormalities
- sleep problems
One study compared the health status of chiropractor’s children to medical pediatrician’s children. The results showed that the “Medical” children required the use of significantly more medications and antibiotics. Children raised under chiropractic care were found to be less prone to infectious processes such as tonsillitis and ear infections and were better able to cope with allergens.
The nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue and organ in the body. Subluxations create a serious interference with nervous system communication between the brain and vital organs. This makes the body more susceptible to malfunction and sickness. Chiropractors are the only professional adequately trained to detect and correct vertebral subluxations. No one, especially a child, should have to live with subluxations.
