Often we are asked about children and chiropractic care. As a parent, you’re concerned about keeping your kids healthy, but you also want to make sure that any kind of healthcare they receive is safe and natural. Chiropractic is both!
Dr. Youngblood sees many children in his Vancouver office and the scientific literature backs up what we see every day: Chiropractic is safe and effective for keeping your kids healthy. According to the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), children can benefit from chiropractic care. The birth process may be one of the most traumatic events of our lives. The birth process itself stresses a still-developing spine. The resulting irritation to the nervous system can be the cause of many newborn and childhood complaints. Colic, unexplained crying, poor appetite, breathing problems, bedwetting, ear infections, and allergic reactions can often be traced to nervous system dysfunction caused by a malfunctioning spine.
A 2012 study looked at the records of 921 chiropractors to investigate the safety of chiropractic. The author found no serious adverse reactions to chiropractic adjustments.
Chiropractic is great because it doesn’t use toxic drugs or risky surgery to optimize health: it’s truly an all-natural approach.
Dr. Youngblood is a fellow of the ICPA and has been trained to adapt his procedures to specifically fit each child’s size, age, weight and spinal health. In many instances, children look forward to treatment and enjoy their time with the doctor.
Dr. Youngblood will conduct a thorough examination of your child and recommend appropriate treatment. He will also make sure to include you, the parent, in every step of the process.
