As Seen On
Chiropractic can help with many common symptoms and problems that pediatric patients present with. We treat many toddlers in our office. At this age group one of the most common complaints are ear infections. Many parents do not simply want to give their toddler antibiotics for every problem. Even in recent articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association, they state that antibiotics are over prescribed. The article states: "The crescendo of research during the past decade has established that antibiotic overuse is a major public health problem1; approximately 50% of prescriptions for children written by community-based practitioners are unnecessary, and the single most important factor in the emergence of antibiotic resistance among respiratory bacterial pathogens is selection pressure from antimicrobial agents. Thus, as a public health policy, there seems little doubt that overzealous prescribing habits and inappropriate use of antibiotics should be reduced on a community-wide basis."
Many times chiropractic adjustments can help reduce and eventually eliminate symptoms of ear infections usinga non drug, non surgical approach. However, we don't just see toddlers for ear infections; we also assess their spine for scoliosis, misalignments or subluxations. Other reasons that we check infants and toddlers include: birth trauma, immune system maturity and developmental milestones along with any abnormal, congenital, traumatic or acquired injuries the child may have. The sooner a child spine is checked the better the child is at fighting off childhood problems and is least likely from developing chronic adult health issues. Research shows that children treated with chiropractic care are two times healthier than allopathic treated children and if a child gets sick they heal two time faster than the allopathic treated child.
After we have examined and assessed toddler patients, we will begin with a light adjustment. Kids love to get adjusted and the Doctors are great with interacting with kids. Our goal is to remove the interference in their nervous system and allow the body to function and heal the way it was designed to.
