Kids Have Spines Too!
Many people in the greater Akron, Ohio community often ask us if we provide chiropractic care for children, to which we answer a resounding, “YES!” There’s a famous quote by the great Frederick Douglass that goes, “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” That’s the exact reason we LOVE seeing children – yes, even infants – in our office.
Illness comes from repeated stressors on our bodies, especially our nervous system, which our spine protects. When we have an adult with chronic pain or even serious disease, we know that the condition didn’t happen overnight. It took years of buildup and repetitive stress to create the condition. As with almost anything, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” – so the earlier we see people, the more likely they are to get and STAY well. So if we can start seeing a child or even a newborn, we can help the nervous system develop in a healthy, unimpeded manner, keeping long-term illness and disease at bay.
Does it hurt?
Absolutely NOT. The techniques we use for children are different than what we use for adults in intensity. And as with all chiropractic techniques, they are safe, gentle, and effective.
So What Can Chiropractic Care Help With?
We never seek to treat or cure any specific disease, we seek to create a wellness routine that puts spine health as a priority. Once the spine is healthy, the body will take care of the rest!
Some of the typical infancy and childhood problems that parents seek our help for include:
- Ear infections
- Sinus issues
- Sports-related injuries
What’s more, we’ve found that children love the experience of visiting our office! We strive to make all children feel safe and welcome, and show them just how much FUN getting truly well is! We’re ready to revolutionize the health of your ENTIRE family. So if you’re in the Wadsworth, Ohio area, give us a call (330) 336-9500 today. Your family’s health is OUR passion!
