Healthy Children Grow Up to be Healthy Adults
We love the saying, “Healthy children grow up to be healthy adults.” It is so true! If you are a parent, you understand the importance of teaching your children healthy habits. From encouraging them to eat nutrient-dense foods, to moving their bodies, to staying hydrated, to not staring at a screen for hours at a time – they are learning what helps them thrive. However, they might not fully understand the importance of health as it relates to having a healthy spine and nervous system. Here at Corrective Chiropractic, we want to change the narrative when it comes to approaching health. We believe that regular chiropractic care is essential for your child’s overall function as they grow up to become healthy adults.
Are Chiropractic Adjustments Safe?
Parents, if you have never been to a Chiropractor yourself before… let us assure you that chiropractic adjustments are very safe. Adjustments for our little ones look very different from those for adults. Our Doctors here at Corrective Chiropractic use an extremely gentle technique, specific to babies and children. With today’s generation of advanced (and even online) learning, children are using technology and devices almost as much or more than adults. This creates a posture that we like to call “text neck.” Over time… this abnormal posture can not only lead to stiff muscles and neck pain, but it can also cause neurological dysfunction and early spinal degeneration. With that being said, we recommend adding in chiropractic care alongside all of your other healthy habits.
The Gift of Going Second
As big influences in our children’s lives, they will often mirror the habits that we create in our own lives. So let us not neglect the power of our position and influence! Once we start prioritizing our health as adults, we then give our children the “gift of going second.” The gift of going second is a result of leaders giving others a clear path to follow, first. Whether it’s in health, relationships, work, or just life… we encourage you to watch for opportunities where going first actually blesses, encourages, and serves others behind you.
