Infants and Chiropractic Care in Palm Harbor FL

Why do parents take kids to be seen by a Chiropractor in Palm Harbor FL, especially infants?

It's a great question and one that I would have asked before I truly understood the benefits and power of Chiropractic care.

The Benefits of infant care in Palm Harbor FL

The benefits of Chiropractic care continue to be researched and the evidence continues to stack up in its favor. One of the most recently published articles comes from the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, this study is called "Maternal Report of Outcomes of Chiropractic for Infants." This was just released this year and like most other Chiropractic research the outcomes are astounding, but I'll share those in a minute. First, we need to understand the role of Chiropractic.

Infants, toddlers, teenagers, and adults all function and are governed by the same innate laws.

For our bodies to develop, function, eat, talk, sleep, and HEAL our brain coordinates every aspect of our being. Our brain is essentially the master computer which controls it all. Unfortunately, we are not wi-fi or Bluetooth equipped, every message from our brain goes from the brain, down the spinal cord and out through the nerves to reach your organs and limbs. This is how our bodies function and communicate. This is true if you are a 1 day old or 100 years old. This is when Chiropractic comes in. If your brain, spinal cord, and nerves are critical to the functioning of your body, then who is checking and making sure that your nervous system is functioning optimally. Sadly, the medical community does not check for spinal interferences due to their philosophy of practice. The medical community checks for anything that might be of immediate danger to one's life at the moment (and that's good). In other words, they are disease focused. The Chiropractic philosophy is polar opposite. We focus on the persons nervous system and its function to prevent disease in the first place.

Chiropractic Care For The Whole Family

Most of us think well I'll go to the Chiropractor in Palm Harbor FL when I have pain, and this is why it is a foreign concept to bring a child to the Chiropractor. But simply knowing the anatomy and knowing that the brain and nervous system control everything, at what point as a parent would you want to know if your child had any interference to the nervous system? 100% of all parents I ask say, "right away". This is why parents who are exposed and educated to Chiropractic care bring their families to get checked by Chiropractors. Now back to the study…

The purpose of the study was to investigate mothers of infants and the outcomes of their infants' overall condition pre and post-chiropractic care. Over 2000 mothers participated in the study and here are some of the areas that showed significant improvements: improved feeding behavior (nursing), decrease sleep issues, increase cervical range of motion, increased time in prone position (tummy time), decrease in excessive crying and a few other improvements. Interestingly maternal satisfaction and ratings also increased, moms reported fewer bouts of depression and anxiety. In total, 82% reported definite improvements of their infant's global impression of change and 95% reported feeling that the care was cost-effective and more than satisfactory. Last thing, 0 side effects were reported.

This is why 1000's of families seek care for their families. Not because a study says it is good, but because they have seen the difference with their kids and their family. I hope you consider having your family checked. It is one of the best gifts you can give them, the gift of health.
