Chiropractic for Children

Today’s medical field is starting to change from the original “Sick Care” approach to a new “Wellness Care” approach to health care.  Wellness care by definition means prevention of the body from diseases.  In hong kong, many people are starting to become very aware of their health and their lifestyles. They choose to eat organic foods, exercise regularly and try to take less drugs. This concept of wellness care approach is exactly what Chiropractic has been promoting for more than 100 years.  Chirorpactic is about natural care and focus on the fact that the body has the ability to heal itself through the use of natural means.  Pain killers and other medications can only provide temporary relief.  For a person to feel better, we must boost our immue system up and have a functioning nervous system.  To do this, we must keep our spine from being harmed because our nervous system is protected by our spine.

Protecting the spine is not something we do when we get older.  As a matter of fact, we should begin protecting our spine  when we are very little.  We need to teach our children the proper posture, exercise regularly and eat a proper diet.  Because if we don’t, our children will suffer from various spinal disorders when they grow up.

Chiropractic is not just for adults, kids need chiropractic care, too.  In the US, there are Pediatic Chiropractor that specializes in pediatric spinal care.  These Chiropractors not only treat spinal disorders but also provide treatments for spinal nerve impingement related disorders such as ADHD, asthma, ear infection, Autism, etc.  To become a Pedicatic Chiropractor, the candidate must first be a licensed Chiropractor and attend trainings and seminars provided by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.  Once the candidate pass the examination, he or she will be awarded a Fellowship with the association and be recognized as a Pediatric Chiropractor.  The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association has done many research regarding pediatric care and chiropractic.  You can visit their website at to find a pediatric chiropractor near you.
