Many parents do not feel that their child needs a pediatric chiropractor Monmouth County but there are issues and conditions that they can help with.  A child has a spine and nervous system just like an adult so they must be both taken care of during a child’s developmental years.

Your nervous system controls everything, which consists of your spinal cord and brain.  The nervous system is like a big fuse box and if there is a “blown fuse,” so to speak, your child could react with bedwetting, constipation, ear infections, trouble sleeping, fussiness, and more.  Visiting a pediatric chiropractor, they can help with many of these conditions.  They can get these “blown fuses” due to trauma, stress, intrauterine constraints, birth trauma, c-section, falls that have enough force to shift their spine out of alignment.  There is also chemical stress suck as medication or diet.

If the spine is misaligned, it needs to be corrected with effective, safe, chiropractic adjustments.  If not fixed, the spine will continue to grow crooked and can cause health challenges as mentioned above.
