Kids & Holistic Chiropractic

What is holistic chiropractic?

Holistic chiropractic is the world’s largest primary healthcare profession treating adults and children without drugs and surgery. It focuses on the root cause of health problems rather than just treating the symptoms.

Can kids benefit from holistic chiropractic care?

Young children and teens can benefit from holistic chiropractic care. Chiropractic adjustments keep your young one’s nervous system working optimally and help the whole body function better by:

  • Boosting the immune system
  • Reducing stress
  • Relieving pain
  • Preventing many health problems

Chiropractic treats much more than back and neck pain. Gentle, drug-free, holistic chiropractic adjustments prevent and resolve a wide range of frustrating health conditions affecting your children ranging from headaches, growing pains, scoliosis, and allergies to earaches and upper respiratory infections, which are the most common health problems in infancy and childhood.

If your children are active – running, jumping, riding bikes, or participating in sports, they tend to fall, bump, sprain, and strain themselves. Spinal and other health problems in adults can often be traced to poor posture in childhood as a result of lugging heavy backpacks, playing musical instruments or computer games for hours on end. Misaligned spinal joints can adversely affect their muscles and nerves. If left uncorrected, these injuries can cause serious health problems as the child grows up. Chiropractic spinal adjustment relieves nerve pressure and improves your child’s overall health.

What happens during a chiropractic treatment?

Dr. Lux uses his hands and various instruments to gently realign skull bones, vertebrae, joints, and muscles to their normal position. This allows the nervous system to function normally, thereby reducing pain and allowing the body to heal itself naturally. Additionally, Dr. Lux will utilize Applied Kinesiology, NET (Neuro-Emotional Technique), and acupressure, as well as provide nutritional advice and recommend supplements to help speed the healing process.

Because holistic chiropractic care is gentle and safe, and does not involve injections and medications, which can potentially be harmful, children enjoy the treatments and their long-lasting benefits.

Are kids who receive chiropractic care healthier than kids who don’t?

A research study compared the health status of children raised under the healthcare models of Chiropractic vs. Allopathic (Traditional) Medicine. Citation: Journal of Chiropractic Research. The study’s findings conclude that:

1. There is a “definite correlation between chiropractic care and superior health.”

2. 69% of the chiropractic children have never had otitis media [middle ear infection], while only 20% of the medical children never had otitis media.

3. Allopathic health care is primarily disease treatment. Chiropractic healthcare is primarily preventative.

4. “This study has shown that children raised under chiropractic care are less prone to infectious processes such as otitis medial [middle ear infection] and tonsillitis, and that their immune systems are better able to cope with allergens such as pollen, weeds, grasses, etc., as compared to children raised under allopathic care.”
5. There is a significant decreased history of antibiotic use among the chiropractic children, “indicating a lower susceptibility to bacterial infections as a result of greater immune system response.”

6. Non-immunized chiropractic children who came down with those childhood diseases seemed to have minor diseases that were not incapacitating. “The hypothesis that chiropractic care maintains the immune system is supported by the observation that, even though the children did have the disease, their lifestyles were not affected and the recovery periods were short.

7. The results of this study confirm the benefits of the chiropractic model of health care on the health status of children.
