Happy Valentines DAY!!!! Yes it is the sweetest and loveliest day of the year. I found a quote that I especially like and I actually found a way to relate this loving holiday to chiropractic for kids.
Every day I give adults chiropractic care in Chippewa Falls that come in to Reilly Chiropractic and say that they are stressed and they have back pain and neck pain and that they are stiff, tight, and sore. I usually discuss why that is how to fix it and what measures to take in order to prevent the back pain neck pain accompanied by stiffness, soreness, and tension from coming back. The thing that makes me giggle a little on the inside is that most of these chiropractic patients have children and their kids aren’t getting adjusted. Is that because they think they can’t handle it or because they don’t need it? The truth is that kids need chiropractic care just as much as the adults in fact most adult back pain and neck pain start during childhood. Do you sit at a computer well think about your teenagers and middle schoolers and how much screen time, texting, and sitting in classrooms that they are exposed to during their day trust me your kid needs a chiropractor.
Most of the time I have found that people avoid chiropractors for two reasons TIME and MONEY. There is also the third reason of lack of knowledge but if you are reading this then you definitely aren’t one of those people are you? I have been contemplating developing a kids for chiropractic club in chippewa falls. This is something that would work similar to a gym membership where families could pay a monthly fee to get all of their kids adjusted by a chiropractor in chippewa falls, wi at Reilly Chiropractic. I am still working on the legal aspects of this and haven’t even mentioned it to my patient’s but if you think it is a good idea to create a chiropractic health care program for kids structured like a gym membership then share this article, like reilly chiropractic on facebook (facebook.com/reillychiropractic), leave a comment or find someway to help let this chippewa falls chiropractor know that you want on board.
Dr.Reilly is a father and a kid chiropractor that decided to share a list of the top ten reasons that children need chiropractors.
Keep in mind that this list is focused typically on kids twelve and under and that it gives a list of symptoms, but remember that infants can’t speak to tell us when and where they are hurting. Toddlers and kids fall all the time and are exposed to great stress, and may not know how to express what they are feeling or even know what they are feeling is not “Normal”.
Most importantly just like adults if you aren’t having back pain or neck pain does not mean that you are doing well and that you are healthy. Just like teeth only your Dentist can tell you when you have a cavity developing. Heart attacks, Cancer, and Diabetes don’t hurt you need to have check ups when you are feeling healthy to ensure that you truly are doing well. Even your car gets and oil change when it is running fine your kids and loved ones should at the very least get a chiropractor to assess them to see if they are doing well.
10 reasons parents take their children to see a chiropractor:
1. To encourage good neural plasticity (brain and nerve development).
2. To support their child’s overall health and wellbeing.
3. To help strengthen their child’s immunity and potentially reduce the incidence of colds, ear-aches and general illness.
4. To assist with colic and Irritable Baby Syndrome.
5. To help with asthma, breathing difficulties and allergies.
6. To encourage good spinal posture.
7. To help improve their child’s ability to concentrate.
8. To assist with behavioral disorders.
9. To help alleviate digestive problems.
10. To assist with bed-wetting and sleep issues.
Below you will find an excellent Valentines Day quote with a funny photo of my son Keller. He gets adjusted at least weekly and if you know him you know that he needs it just based on the bruises that he maintains.
