Who wouldn’t like to have healthier children the natural way? More children are overweight, on more medications, experiencing more allergies, asthma type conditions, ear infections, chronic colds and musculoskeletal conditions.
More children are on medications than ever. 1 in 4 insured children are on at least one drug for chronic conditions. The numbers jump to a staggering 30% of adolescents on at least one medication. If this trend continues, children will be showing the signs of side effects of these toxic drugs including shorter life spans!
Studies are showing there is a safe and effective way to have healthier children!
We can’t ignore when a child say they have back pain, neck pain or headaches. Multiple studies show chiropractic is a natural, safe and effective treatment in relieving musculoskeletal conditions in children. It is the number one reason why children are brought to chiropractors. A 2003 study shows 62% of pediatric patients had significant relief of back pain with chiropractic care. Other health areas improved in the children getting treated for pain and musculoskeletal problems.
Chiropractic treats more than musculoskeletal conditions. Chiropractic wellness care results in healthier children. A 2009 survey shows many parents take their children to the chiropractor for wellness care. Studies confirm positive effects on blood pressure, heart rate, stress hormones, release of endorphins, boosting the immune system, and improved sleep, attitude and behavior.
All medications have mild to serious side effects in children. These drugs are dangerous to your child. There is a better option. Studies continue to show the safety of chiropractic for kids. A 2012 survey of European chiropractors shows fewer than 1% of children experience any side effects from their treatment. The few side effects reported were mild in nature. Three other studies confirmed there were no serious side effects reported with pediatric chiropractic care.
Children deserve a better form of health care than just pushing dangerous medications. If you want healthier children, chiropractic is the safe, natural healthcare for a number of conditions while also promoting wellness! There is a good reason why more and more children are being brought to chiropractors.
