Now that school’s out, it’s the perfect time to ensure your kiddos’ nervous systems are operating optimally, so they can live their healthiest lives and have a great summer!

Parents sometimes question why a baby or child would need pediatric chiropractic care. The simple answer comes from the difference between being proactive versus reactive. The body undergoes physical trauma that begins with spinal distress in the womb during a baby’s development and continues through the birth process into childhood development. Consider the force put on a baby’s cervical spine during a c-section or how many times they fall when learning to walk.

Children are also spending more time on computers and electronic devices than ever before. You can see for yourself the significant impact this has had on an average child’s spine and posture. We are finding that kids these days, particularly ones who spend time on a screen, have much more dramatic Neuro-Structural shifts than we saw even a decade ago. Think about how much pressure is being put on their upper cervical neck when looking down at a phone tablet screen.

Seeking chiropractic care for kids to reverse these effects is best done sooner than later in life. Children under pediatric chiropractic care report experiencing improvements in a variety of symptoms and health conditions, including: 

  • Better sleep

  • Healthier immune systems

  • Decreased frequency of ear infection

  • More rapid recovery from illness

  • Improved behavior, concentration & mood

  • Improved performance in school 

  • Better coordination and improved performance in athletics


Research from 2016 has shown that chiropractic adjustments improved function by 20% in the prefrontal cortex, the region of the brain responsible for all executive functions, including focus control, concentration, learning, and personality. Improving the functionality of this region can greatly impact a child’s perception of their own capabilities and, thus, their mental health as well. So it’s no wonder that Neuro-Structural pediatric chiropractic care can help a number of conditions, including:


  • autism, ADHD, anxiety & sensory processing disorder

  • asthma, allergies & other immune challenges

  • colic, reflux, constipation, nursing & digestive issues

  • ear, sinus & respiratory infections


Because a child’s body is so resilient, a kid’s healing potential is much faster than the average adult’s. However, 1 in 4 children in the United States take a prescription drug for a chronic condition, a more reactive healthcare approach. That means 25% of America’s children rely on dangerous pharmaceutical drugs to treat a condition that may never fully resolve.

At Platinum Chiropractic, we believe in identifying interferences in the nervous system and honoring the body’s innate ability to heal. Equipping your kid with an optimally functioning nervous system going into the school year can be life-changing. Summer is a great time to get started.
