September is coming fast around the corner! If you are like us then you will agree summer has passed us all too quickly. With the arrival of September comes the return of school for many kids in our practise! Dr. Shanna meets many families with kids ranging from newborns to teenagers and we typically see a lot of kids who are active in school and sports.
One of the most common things we hear parents saying are the concerns about behavioural and concentration disorders like ADHD and frequent colds, flus, allergies and asthma that restrict their child from participating in school 100%.
If your child suffers from any of these conditions then Chiropractic care can be a wonderful drug-free option for them!
Research has shown adjustments boost our happy hormones like Serotonin and Dopamine which have direct connections to disorders like ADHD and concentration. Overtime the whole body functions better including the immune system. Chronic conditions like Asthma and allergies have been shown to improve with Chiropractic treatment according to the ICPA of the American Chiropractic Association.
Adjustments turn the brain ON which is great for people of all ages since we need our nervous system to function optimally each and every single day! Our bodies (especially little bodies) are susceptible to stressors which can affect the nervous systems abilities to function correctly. Dr. Jennifer Barham-Floreani from Well Adjusted babies outlines 8 reasons so many children are unwell and discusses in detail those stressors and how they affect the body.
Even a healthy child with no symptoms can benefit from a wellness checkup from your Chiropractor.
