10 Reasons Healthy Kids go to the Chiropractor

More and more children have appointments to see a chiropractor. Chiropractors evaluate and fix misalignments in our spine that cause nerve distress. Whether or not our spine is big or little, if it is creating nerve distress then our bodies may not operate smoothly.

When we appreciate how important the nervous system is and how easily it can be hindered and impaired it makes sense that more parents are having their child’s spine and nervous system assessed.

10 reasons parents take their children to see a chiropractor:

To maximize neural plasticity (brain and nerve development).
To enhance overall health and wellbeing.
To strengthen immunity and reduce the incidence of colds, ear-aches and general illness.
To help with colic and irritable baby syndrome.
To help with asthma, breathing difficulties and allergies.
To improve spinal posture.
To improve the ability to concentrate.
To assist with behavioural disorders and enhance emotional wellbeing.
To help alleviate digestive problems.
To assist with bed-wetting and sleep issues.

Testimonials

  • "could barely walk at 9 months pregnant she worked a miracle! My 5 year old is so much better also. Plus when I noticed that the new baby always held her head to one side and had a problem breastfeeding on one side we went in. They were able to fix it and it became so much easier to breastfeed and the baby is so much happier."
    Sarah S.
  • "I will shout it from the rooftop! This place has changed my life. I didn't even realize how much pain I was living with until Dr. D and Dr. J started my treatment. I'm so much more aware of my body and am nearly pain free. I'm stronger. I'm happier. I'm not self medicating anymore. They are miracle workers here! My heart is filled with gratitude."
    Jessica C.
  • "I came to Dr. Dee with such back pain that I couldn't stand up straight and it was hard to walk and stand. I am a hair stylist and a single mother of six kids, I needed to be able to work and function. My doctor prescribed pain killers instead of trying to address the real cause of the problem. Chiropractic has given me my life back!! I couldn't live without Dr. Dee!"
    Wendy Wilson
  • "I began care with Dr. Dee on May 30, 2015, after a car accident that left me with upper and lower back pain and neck pain. I was unable to lift my one year old grand-daughter and missed walking, hikes and taking exercise classes. I tried to control the pain with OTC medications and alternating heat and ice, but it just didn't get better. Chiropractic adjustments have given me back my mobility, reduced and eventually eliminated my pain and I'm able to do my normal activities!"
    Joan Medina
  • "I was in a car accident in 2011 that left me with constant pain in my upper back and neck and it would become very severe at times. I lived day to day not knowing what I would be able to lift or accomplish at work. I did take physical therapy over the years and was prescribed muscle relaxants by my physician, but was open to another form of treatment, as it seemed these other things weren't working. Dr. Dee had restored most of my mobility and the pain is mostly gone!"
    Arnold Rodriquez
  • "I came to Alpine Wellness with a herniated disk in L-4 /L-5. At one point I couldn't even move. I felt like a fish out of water, life was miserable! The orthopedic surgeon recommended surgery and prescribed pain medication when I refused to go through with the surgery. Dr. Dee and chiropractic have helped so much, I never have had the surgery. I can move! The best side effect in my opinion is how strong my immune system has become. I'm a teacher and I never get sick!! My son was diagnosed "failure to thrive" when he was born and has seen Dr. Dee since he was a week old and man have we proved that wrong! He is so happy and healthy and big for his age!"

  • Health Statistics and You

    We are awash in numbers, thanks in large part to the proliferation of personal mobile devices and the wrong-headed use of so-called big data.1 But applying statistical tools to the same set of data can support competing theories and lead to contradictory results. Such conflicting outcomes, known as antinomies ...

  • Meditation and Me

    For many of us, the practice of meditation seems like a totally foreign notion. In an era of full-time, morning-to-night distractions and distractibility, the concept of quietly sitting with nothing else to do seems impossibly ridiculous. Why would anyone do that, we ask, as we text message with one ...
