Author: Natalie Meiri, D.C. Posted: 8/23/20
A chiropractor can treat kids naturally without drugs. Firstly, chiropractic is a specialty for musculoskeletal injuries. Secondly, with regular chiropractic treatment, it is shown to have tremendous effects on childrens’ nervous and immune systems. Thirdly, it reduces recovery time for many illnesses. Finally, it is also beneficial as preventive care.
In addition to chiropractic, alternative therapies such as homeopathy can be utilized. Homeopathic medicines are used in extremely dilute nontoxic concentrations. Moreover, when administered according to homeopathic principles, it is safe for infants and children. So chiropractic works on the structural level for your child’s healing. And homeopathy works more on the biochemical level.
Many kids get ear infections. They can be on their 3rd antibiotic and not be responding fully or at all. Gentle chiropractic care along with homeopathic medicines may give some immediate relief. Above all, homeopathy works by stimulating a natural healing reaction in a child.
Kids may be experiencing “growing pains”. This could actually be from the rigorous daily physical activities they participate in. Furthermore, emotional stress causes tension in their neck and back. This may cause kids’ headaches or babies to display unexplained persistent crying behavior (infant colic). Chiropractic care will take the pressure off their spine to heal physically. Meanwhile, homeopathic medicines aid in stress relief and address the emotional components of the pain.
Many kids are injuring their arm or leg during activities such as martial arts, volley ball, gymnastics or playing a musical instrument. Chiropractic manipulation of hands, elbows, shoulders, feet, knees and/or hips will get them back to peak performance. In the acute phases, homeopathy aids in pain relief and improves healing time. A kid in an arm sling may be playing volleyball the very next day.
Austic or kids on the spectrum having stomach problems, anxiety, motor skills, and sensory integration can benefit from holistic care. Chiropractic helps relax the muscles and joints and affect the nervous system. Aligning the spine improves many sensory conditions over time.
Chiropractic care is among the most common complementary and integrative health care practice used by children in the United States, according to the US National Center for Health Statistics Report (2015). In a survey (Alcantara et al. (2009) Explore), parents reported improvements in their children’s health and function after receiving chiropractic care, ranging from improvements in pain through improved mood and immune function.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine that has been used by millions of people worldwide for over 200 years. It is prescribed and recommended by health care providers in over 65 countries.
