If you've ever had a chiropractic adjustment, you know that it feels pretty good. But what exactly does an adjustment do? Turns out, it can do a lot! Chiropractic adjustments help to restore normal motion and alignment of the spine, which can help improve your child's overall health. So if you're child is colic, reflux, poor sleep, ear infections, or just want to to help them improve their general well-being in hitting important milestones, consider scheduling a chiropractic appointment today!
An adjustment is a nervous system intervention through a manual adjustment of your spine that essentially does two things at the same time: reducing and releasing built-up stress and tension (subluxation), and activating and stimulating the healing capacity of the body by bringing the autonomic nervous system back into balance.
However, by reducing subluxation and stimulating the nervous system, an adjustment creates an environment in which the body is better able to heal itself. This is why chiropractic care is so effective in treating a wide range of conditions—because it works with the body, not against it. When the body is able to function properly, it has an amazing capacity for self-healing.
These adjustments are the key to unlocking the neurological healing that has been eluding your child. As a PX Doctor, we are trained in the Neuro-Tonal Model, which is a gentle and effective adjustment protocol that does not cause any pain or side effects. In fact, many parents report that their child sleeps better and has improved gut and immune function after getting care, even if those were not the original issues they sought our care for. We always welcome any "side effects" that may arise, as they are all positive signs of improvement!
So, what exactly is a chiropractic adjustment? The adjustment is not the fix, or the cure; only the body can heal, restore, or cure itself. It's important to keep this in mind when you're considering if chiropractic care is right for you. Chiropractic adjustments are safe, gentle, and effective for people of all ages - from newborns to seniors.
