If you've been to my St. Paul chiropractic office, chances are you might have seen a baby or child getting adjusted. Back to Wellness Chiropractic parents love bringing babies and kids to chiropractors because KIDS HAVE SPINES THAT GET MISALIGNED TOO! Can you imagine squeezing YOUR head and body through a narrow space and NOT messing up your neck and back?!? Neither can I! Those early misalignments in young necks can be a cause of sleep issues, ear infections, colic, immune system issues, etc. They can also sit silent until later childhood and lead to ADD/ADHD, digestive issues, constipation, diarrhea, etc.
A child also falls around 1500 times just learning to walk! I work with adults who take 1 spill and they are miserable with subluxations! Imagine how a kid feels!
Check out this proactive chiropractic family! Ta brought Tayden and Tobias in for gentle chiropractic adjustments so their lives get started off right! They will thank their momma when they are 60 years old! :)
Don't forget that a lot of parents put their kids in high impact sports that can not only subluxate (misalign) a spine early in life, but can cause degeneration and arthritis later on in life if not adjusted early! I have seen people with extremely degenerative and arthritic necks from old sports injuries JUST STARTING chiropractic care when they should have been seeing a chiropractor WAY BACK in high school! Smart parents want their kids to perform their best in sports via regular chiropractic care, but they ALSO want them to have the best spinal structure AND nerve system later in life as well!
"Backpack Back" season (aka "School") is also upon us. It seems young spines carry heavier and heavier backpacks with each passing year! No more than 15% of a child's weight should be in his or her backpack! (Check this out for more backpack safety tips!)
Dr. Kayla offers FREE BACKPACK CHECKS for St. Paul children so that their spines stay healthy and well! She also has special children's chiropractic care adjustment rates that will keep the spines on track towards better health! Schedule a chiropractic checkup for your child(ren)!
If you know parents that have kids, share these crucial pieces of information with them! You will be saving lives YEARS from now! :)
Yours in Health,
Dr. Kayla Zirpel-Proctor
