Chiropractic for Kids


The most common question I hear from parents when I speak about chiropractic and children is, “why do kids get adjusted?” The simplest answer to that question is because they have a nervous system just like adults and that nervous system works better and more efficiently when there is no interference (vertebral subluxations). When their nerve systems are not functioning at the highest level, it can decrease their immune system, among other things, causing their bodies to function in a weakened state. The result? Ear infections, colds, viral infections, skin issues, etc. Kids who get adjusted have stronger, healthier nerve systems.

Dr. Amy Horn does a great job explaining chiropractic and kids in this segment. She and I have a passion for chiropractic pediatrics and LOVE sharing what we do with everyone. Great job Dr. Amy!!!

    Love your blog Mary! I have passed the link along to several people, including Hannah. Your articles are so well written, concise and to the point! And as you know, I chose to have home births because of you. You are an inspiration to me and women all over the world.

    Hi Mary~ I also had 2 amazing home-births because of you. I don’t know if I could have done it without your love and inspiration! The beach and ocean are also my Happy Places! They always have been.

      Thanks for your beautiful comment Donna. I will never forget Abby and Kathryn’s births, April 9th two years apart. You are one of the strongest women I know.
