The purpose of chiropractic is to find and remove interference to your nervous system. If you have misalignments in your spinal column, called subluxations, your nervous system can be under tension that disrupts the flow of information from the brain to body and vice versa.
Chiropractic is concerned with optimal FUNCTION for optimal HEALTH. We do not treat pain or disease. We adjust the spinal subluxations that are interfering with your innate health potential. Your ability to self-heal and self-regulate is dependent on proper nerve tone.
For this reason, chiropractic care is appropriate and necessary for all ages. If you are operating under the misconception that you need to have back pain to see a chiropractor, then you are missing out on a necessary part of a healthy lifestyle for yourself, and your children (if you have children). The stresses of life don't wait until we turn 18 and enter adulthood. They start the minute we are born; in utero actually. It only makes sense that caring for the nervous system and spine should start as soon as possible.
As a family wellness chiropractor, I tailor the adjustment to the individual. Newborn adjustments differ from toddler adjustments, which differ from teenager adjustments and so on. I've been trained to deliver specific adjustments that are appropriate for the age and spinal development of the individual. There are challenges we all face living in our human bodies and they didn't start last week at boot camp or yesterday raking the yard. It is much easier to grow a healthy child than it is to fix a broken adult. Please help us spread to message that chiropractic care is safe and effective for children of all ages.
Love, Dr Erin
