Keeping your child healthy is a big job! Raising a child in this fast paced, fast food, high stress world can be a challenging task. But there is good news. Research shows that the healthiest children may be found in a chiropractic office.
Chiropractic is more than adjusting back and necks. It is a healthy lifestyle, a proactive approach to health and well-being and children have been a part of this chiropractic wellness movement for over 100 years. The intent is to restore function to the body naturally and let the body heal from within. It can be as simple as that. In chiropractic, we have born witness to thousands of children experiencing improved health through chiropractic. Now for the research…
One study compared the health of 200 children of chiropractors and the health of 200 pediatrician's children. You would think that the pediatrician's children would have an unfair advantage. Not true. It is the chiropractic children with the unfair advantage. The study found that the chiropractic children raised in a Wellness Chiropractic model were healthier than the pediatrician's children. While only 19% of the pediatrician's never had an ear infection, the chiropractic children were 69% free of ear infections, a significant health advantage for the chiropractic children. Only 11 % of the pediatrician's children had never used antibiotics while 50% of the chiropractic children had never ever used antibiotics.
