Should Children Receive Chiropractic?

Why Should Children Receive Chiropractic?

There are many reasons why children receive chiropractic care. Many spinal problems seen in adults begin as early as birth. Since significant spinal trauma can occur at birth many parents have their newborns checked. Even so called ‘natural’ birthing methods can stress a developing spine. The resulting irritation to the nerve system caused by spinal misalignments can be the cause of many newborn health complaints. Colic, breathing problems, nursing difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions can often be traced to nerve system dysfunction.

In the infant, learning to hold up the head, sit, crawl and walk are all activities that affect spinal alignment and are important times to have a child checked by a Doctor of Chiropractic.

As the child grows and begins to participate in regular childhood activities like skating or riding a bike, small yet significant spinal misalignments (subluxations) may occur. If neglected, the injuries during this period of rapid growth may lead to more serious problems later in life. Subtle traumas will affect the future development of the spine leading to impaired nervous system function. Any interference to the vital nerve system will adversely affect the body’s ability to function at its best.

Why Are Parents Taking Their Children To The Chiropractor?

One of the most common reasons a parent seeks care for their child is trauma; a fall or an injury of some sort. These misalignments may or may not result in immediate pain or symptoms. Regular chiropractic checkups can identify potential spinal injury from these traumas, make the correction early in life and help avoid many of the health complaints seen later in adults. Proper spinal hygiene is an important key to better health.

Another sought out reason for care is the resolution of a particular symptom or condition. Parents seek care for conditions such as colic, ear infections, asthma, allergies and headaches because they have heard from other parents that chiropractic care helps.

It is important to understand that the doctor of chiropractic does not diagnose or treat conditions or diseases. The expertise of the chiropractor is in checking the child’s spine for misalignments that impair overall body function. The bones of the spine, the vertebrae house and protect the spinal cord. The spinal cord is an extension of the brain and carries information from the brain to the body parts and back to the brain again.

Subluxations interfere with the nerves’ ability to transmit vital information throughout the body.

The nerve system controls and coordinates the function of all the systems in the body: circulatory, respiratory, digestive, hormonal, eliminative and immune system. Any aspect of health may be impaired by nerve interference. The chiropractic adjustment restores nerve system function allowing the body’s ability to express a greater state of health and well-being.

Is Chiropractic For Kids Safe, Gentle and Necessary?

The doctor of chiropractic will evaluate a child in a different manner than a medical doctor. They will perform a detailed evaluation to determine if spinal subluxations exist. Chiropractic adjusting procedures are modified to fit a child’s size, weight, and unique spinal condition. They are both gentle and specific to the child’s developing spinal structures. Most parents report that their children enjoy their chiropractic adjustments and look forward to subsequent visits.

Lastly, the ideal reason for a parent to take their child to a chiropractor is to enhance their ability to function in a greater state of health, to grow and develop optimally. This type of parent would consider it not only beneficial for their child, but essential to helping them be at their best. If you have family members that do not live locally, we can help you find a doctor of chiropractic near them who is dedicated to serving children with the utmost of care, like we do. Your family deserves to experience the many benefits of chiropractic care. Please, let us help you do just that.

And, please help us tell others!

Circuit Breakers In Our Body?

Chiropractor in Centennial helps nerve problemsWhat Do We Need To Know About The Circuit Breakers In Our Body?

If the circuitry in your house or automobile were to become dysfunctional, would you be concerned?

What would you expect to happen if it did? Things would simply no longer function properly, right? And, if left uncorrected, would lead to progressive problems and concerns down the road, yes?

What if we told you that your body is subject to a similar principle… would you want to know more? Of course you would.Chiropractor in Centennial nerve problems

What If You Believed The Following To be True?

  • Our spine/brain/nerve system is like the main circuit panel for our body
  • Spinal subluxations (abnormalities) are like a flipped circuit breaker 
  • Alterations in the circuitry will always cause things to work improperly
  • If things are not working properly, the first place to check is the main circuit panel
  • To keep things working properly, we must keep the circuit panel operating properly

Maybe An Example Will Help?

brain controls thyroid, brain sends signals down through spine conduit, spinal circuit breaker to thyroid becomes compromised, electrical flow to thyroid becomes compromised, thyroid starts to become dysfunctional, person begins having symptoms, person is put on medication for symptoms, person never addresses the root cause and their body is never allowed to function properly. This logic (or lack thereof) could apply to any piece or part of our body, yes?

See how cool and interesting the Circuit Breaker Analogy actually is? Can you see how your spine/nerve system can literally influence any piece or part of your body? Can you see how important spinal hygiene is to maintaining health and preventing dysfunction or disease? 

Keeping the circuit breakers (spine-nerve connections) in my body in the on or open position is one of the main reasons why I will use chiropractic for the rest of my life. We must keep our ‘power turned on’ by keeping our brain and body fully connected.”

One More Thing We Need To Know…

Unlike our home or automobile, we can have a circuit breaker problem in our body and not even know it. We can have a circuit breaker problem for years and not have any symptoms at all.

In fact, we are starting to realize that we begin developing these problems when we are young. This is when we play hard and fall a lot. Sprinkle in a few seemingly minor car accidents and/or slips and falls, and there you have it… circuit breaker problems that most other health care providers miss or misdiagnose as something else.

What Is The Conclusion Here?

The Circuit Breaker Analogy easily explains how health and disease is connected to the health of our spine and nerve system. Is this not a great reason to keep our spine healthy with chiropractic for the rest of our life? Is this not a good reason to make sure every man, woman, and child you know be under the care of a good wellness-based Doctor of Chiropractic?

We think so, and we hope you do too.

Please tell everyone you know about what you just learned, okay? Please and thank you.

THE TALE OF TWO SISTERS (a story we all can learn from)

Click here for the backstory on Jen and Mary

Remember, Jen thinks and behaves like most people. She puts everything else in her life above her own needs. As a result, Jen has completely neglected her health over the last several years. She feels old, out of shape, stiff and sore most of the time, unmotivated, and always tired. Her medical doctor is pushing to add another prescription to help with the fatigue and depression. She tells her doctor she just wants to get though the day and feel normal again. She is struggling, and as a result, so is her family and relationships.

Her sister Mary on the other hand, learned a very important lesson long ago. Her ‘mentor’, as she often refers to, taught her: “To be your best at caring for and loving others, you must take care of yourself first.” Since then, she has always carved out time to exercise, sometimes only 5-10 minutes before life calls her back. She has developed daily rituals for prayer and gratitude. Her lifestyle isn’t perfect, but she is always trying to improve how her body functions day to day. Mary is thriving, and as a result, so is her family and relationships.


 

Food For Thought…

The greatest gift we can ever give to those we love is… making our health a priority, never letting it ‘take a backseat’ to anything.

HOW TRUE IS THIS…

Health often takes a backseat to many things: kids, family, career, hobbies, deadlines, holidays, etc.

On the surface, this seems benign and harmless. But, could this be an enormous mistake with serious repercussions?

Take family for example…

Our health affects how we interact with those we love. It affects how we give love to others. It affects how long we will be around to love those we care about.

Mary was taught a very important lesson… the healthier a spouse or parent is, the better they can perform in that role.

HER ‘MENTOR’ ONCE ASKED…

Mentor: “Mary, why do they tell us to put the airplane oxygen mask on first before helping a child or loved one?

Mary: “Because if we are not alive and capable, we can’t help anyone else?”

Mentor: “Correct! Now, can you see the risk we take when we neglect ourselves in the process of caring for others? It is a far bigger risk than most people give credit to.”

Mary: “I do now! I need to work on that.”

SACRIFICES VS. PRIORITIES…

People make sacrifices for others, and that’s a beautiful thing. But, to de-prioritize our own health may be the worst thing we could do for, or to, those we love.

Think about the agony a family member goes through watching their loved one suffer with illness.

Think about the monetary cost of managing a family member’s illness – it’s the #1 cause of bankruptcy in the U.S. for goodness sake!

This needs to stop, don’t you think?

The trick, the secret, is to finally understand this…

Our loved ones literally need us to make our health the highest priority.

By doing so, we massively improve our ability to care for them. By doing so, we can be a better example for them.

Look at Mary, she is thriving and happy. Subsequently, so is her family.

SO, LETS CHALLENGE OURSELVES…

  • To continuously upgrade our understanding of health
  • To continuously improve our lifestyle and daily habits
  • To put our health first now so we don’t ‘put them through hell’ later
  • To make our own health a priority so we can love our family in bigger ways for longer

The Conclusion…

Learn and apply the ‘true definition of health’. Make improving health and function (the F-word) a daily priority. The stronger, healthier, wiser and more capable we are… the more we can give, love and live.

Action Steps…

Move Better

Make time for exercise and stretching (even if it’s only 10-15 minutes per day), get outside for a walk or hike, sweat a little because it’s good for you, get out of breathe and challenge yourself, go to your Chiropractor regularly, etc.

Eat Better

Eat at least one salad per day, drink more water, try to reduce your sugar intake a little bit every month, learn how to supplement your diet properly, create a diet and health challenge with a friend of spouse, set small goals and reward yourself, etc.

Think Better

Say a prayer every morning in the shower, listen to something positive while getting ready or on your commute instead of the radio, before arriving at work list out loud 10-20 things you are grateful for, read something inspiring, etc.

Winsor Autopsy Studies

The Winsor Autopsy Studies: A Revealing Medical Study You Never Heard About, UNTIL NOW!

This is one of the main reasons why I use chiropractic care on a regular basis, and will continue to do so for the rest of my life!


Henry Winsor, MD and His Findings:

He performed roughly 75 autopsies and this is what he found…

STOMACH DISEASE: Nine cases of stomach disease all had spinal misalignments in the mid thoracic spine, an area between the shoulder blades.

LUNG DISEASE: Twenty-six cases of lung disease had spinal misalignments in the upper dorsal region, an area slightly below the neck.

LIVER DISEASE: Thirteen cases of liver disease were associated with misalignments in the lower mid-dorsal region.

GALLSTONES: Five cases of gallstone disease associated with related spinal misalignments.

PANCREAS DISEASE: Three cases of pancreas disease associated with related spinal misalignments.

SPLEEN DISEASE: Eleven cases of spleen disease associated with spinal misalignments

KIDNEY DISEASE: Seventeen cases of kidney disease had the lower dorsal (thoracic) 10th, 11th, 12th, vertebrae out of alignment.

PROSTATE & BLADDER DISEASE: Eight cases of prostate and bladder disease had the lower back vertebrae misaligned (specifically the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd lumbar vertebrae.)

UTERUS: Two cases of uterus conditions had the second lumbar misaligned.

THYMUS: Two cases of thymus disease had lower neck and upper back misalignments.

The Conclusion?

Dr. Winsor’s results were published in the respected medical journal, The Medical Times, and can be found in any medical library. Dr. Winsor was not alone in his findings. Similar studies by other researchers over the next few decades would confirm his initial conclusions… a well cared for spine is essential to maintaining health and preventing dis-ease.

To think that chiropractic is only good for back pain and headaches is analogous to thinking that a dentist is only good for crowns and root canals.

Please, Consider This…

Your body runs on electricity. Billions of electrical signals are constantly flowing from the brain to organs, glands and cells. The 2 main components of this electrical system are the brain and spinal cord. This electrical system forms what is known as the Brain-Body Communication System.

This Brain-Body Communication System is delicate, complex and undoubtedly the most important system in your entire body. For this reason, it is primarily encased in bone, i.e. your skull and spine.

Everyone knows how life changing an injury or even mild damage to the skull can be. The same is true for the spine. Not only can an unhealthy or damaged spine cause PAIN, but it can also produce nerve dysfunction.

The scary part is this… nerve dysfunction from an unhealthy spine CAN and OFTEN exists without pain or symptoms!

An ugly, but accurate analogy for this phenomenon is CANCER. Cancer typically exits for months or years before symptoms begin to surface.

What Does This Really Mean To You?

To live a long, active and healthy life your Brain-Body Communication System MUST be operating properly.

There are many factors that can influence this, but one thing is for sure…

Symptoms or no symptoms… You MUST be certain that your spine is NOT producing dysfunction to the very thing it is designed to protect.

So, Ask Yourself This…

How do you know if your spine is truly healthy?

Remember… you can’t use symptoms to determine this. And, your family physician is not adequately trained to advise you on this matter.

Truth is, you won’t know… that is what a Doctor of Chiropractic is for!

Dr. Burns’ Final Comments:

I started using chiropractic like most people. I had aches and pains, and chiropractic care helped me tremendously.

Fast forward 20+ years later…

I now use routine chiropractic care for 2 reasons:

  1. To prevent dysfunction, injury and abnormal aging
  2. To optimize Brain-Body Communication, and ALL THINGS related to that system

For these simple, logical reasons (including those found in the Winsor Autopsy studies)… I get chiropractic care at least 2-4 times per month – regardless of how I FEEL.

Perhaps you should too?
