A spinal adjustment occurs when a chiropractor places his hands on the bone to be moved and introduces a gentle force. The body takes this force and moves the bone towards its proper position. The nerve flow in this area is then restored and the body can now function in a healthier state.
Because they may have nerve interference like adults. They have all the same body parts as adults, so why shouldn’t they get their spines checked?
Think about the birth process itself. It is very traumatic for the mother and the child, even in the gentlest of births. The infant has been in the mother’s womb for nine to ten months. Then at birth the infant is released from the warm, comfortable, fluid enclosed womb and pushed through the narrow birth canal, often times pulled out by a doctor. The traction on an infant’s tiny neck causes subluxations to occur immediately. Even if traction is not used, just the process of pushing can cause subluxations.
Toddlers and children are always falling down; this can cause subluxations. Why not give your newborn baby and children the greatest possible chance at a healthy life from the very start?
There are special tables, equipment and positions just for pregnant women to ensure a pleasant and effective adjustment.
Absolutely not! The true danger is not getting their spines checked for subluxations. Vertebral subluxations have been linked to sudden infant death syndrome. If there is nerve interference present, then our bodies are not working correctly. Subluxations have been called the “silent killer.”
When an infant or a child receives a spinal adjustment, the pressure used to move the bone or cartilage is just as gentle as the pressure of my finger resting on your hand. That’s all it takes to move the bone in a child. With this knowledge, you should ask yourself how much pressure, or how many falls does it take to misalign or subluxate a bone, causing that nerve pressure to occur? How many days, weeks, months, years do we go having nerve interference present in our body without even knowing it?
sub = less than ~ luxation = dislocation
A dropped cell phone call is irritating. But dropped communications between your brain and your body can seriously impair your health!
A subluxation is a stress response: muscles go into spasm, spinal bones lock up, and adjacent nerves are choked or chafed. This interferes with the control and regulation of your body. This garbles communications between the brain and parts of your body.
Distorted nerve communications can be an underlying cause of many health problems beyond just headaches and back pain. For example, interference with nerve impulses going to or from your stomach creates stomach problems.
Your nervous system controls every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. These nerve impulses travel through your spine. So having a spine free of subluxations is essential for optimal health.
Find out if you have subluxations before they become more serious and more difficult to correct.
- Physical causes include slips and falls, accidents, repetitive motion and improper lifting.
- Stress, anger and fear are examples of emotional causes.
- Alcohol, drugs, pollution, and poor diet can cause chemical subluxations.
