Kids at War With Stress
The children in our country are definitely at war when it comes to health. The number of kids on medication has gone sky high and it’s alarming.
Researchers are discovering that ongoing chemical stressors like poor nutrition and poverty plus emotional stressors such as neglect, parental substance abuse and other adversities are detrimental to children’s brains and body systems.
Stress or trauma can cause brain changes that interfere with learning, contribute to altered behavior and jeopardize health. Recent studies suggest that stress changes the body’s metabolism and contributes to internal inflammation, which can raise the risk for developing diabetes and heart disease in adulthood.

Infants: Babies can be born with alterations of the natural spinal alignment due to the pressures of birth and/or trauma during pregnancy.
Children: Children take spills all the time that are constantly causing spine misalignment. Yes, a child’s body is resilient and often recovers quickly from injury, but the long-term effects go unseen and are forgotten. Even the slightest misalignment of the spine, especially during a child’s developmental stages, can affect the brain and nervous system.
The ongoing growth of children brings added responsibilities and stresses on their bodies, from poor posture due to text-neck to wearing a backpack every day. Their bodies naturally will fight off these stressors, but through chiropractic care we can make sure the body is functioning properly in order to do so in a healthy way.
