Every parent desires to maximize the health of their child. Thus parents should be proactive in keeping their children healthy. As a parent considering chiropractic for your child, there are some important truths that need to be understood about chiropractic care and children. First is the understanding that your child’s nervous system (brain, spinal cord and nerves)controls and coordinates every single function of his or her body. This includes all the body’s systems, such as the immune system, all biochemical functions, and hormones, as well as the control of all healing mechanisms. It is because of this that it is imperative that your child’s nervous system and spine are functioning and developing properly.
Dr. Morales is an educated and trained expert who is able to determine if the nervous system is functioning properly, in children as well as in adults. During a consultation with Dr. Morales, she will take a thorough history of your child’s health, in conjunction with a complete chiropractic, neurologic and postural evaluation. Dr. Morales will then determine the extent of your child’s interference in the nervous system. This interference is called a SUBLUXATION or a damaged or injured vertebra that is not moving properly and putting pressure on a spinal nerve. Click here to learn more about Children’s Health
