Chiropractic principle holds that the spine is a key to the nervous system and therefore to health, because all nerve trunks are distributed through the spinal column.
At Chiropractic Health Center, we are pleased to offer many services in this regard to empower the patient to acquire and maintain a happy, healthy life.
Your Child’s Health
Most people don’t realize that young children, even babies, respond rapidly and extremely well to chiropractic care. Energetic children often over-stress their bodies and every year, thousands of structural health problems go undetected. However, if you, as a parent, a child care worker, or educator will be alert to such things as changes in your child’s energy level, posture, moods and habits, you may be able to detect developing problems early. Here is a partial list of some of the common childhood disorders which can be helped by chiropractic treatment:
- Chronic ear or throat infections
- Posture problems
- Respiratory disorders
