As parents, we want the absolute best for our kids. We try and feed them good, healthy meals. We make sure they get exercise through play or sports. We stimulate healthy brain development through reading and teaching them about the world around them. But what about their Nervous System, the system that controls EVERYTHING in the body? Watch below to learn more about how amazing Chiropractic can be for our precious little ones.
The birth process can be VERY traumatic to those tiny little necks, expecially when there is pulling, or rotation as the head is coming out. Even with a C-Section there are a lot of intense forces on the little head and neck.
As our little ones begin crawling and moving around on their own they are bound to fall, or bump thier heads.
Any of these little traumas they experience can misalign those tiny vertebrae, causing pressure on the nerves. When we adjust those bones back into place, the body begins to communicate and work better. This is why kids experience better immune function, less ear infections, less colic, and many more improvements when they are under chiropractic care.
So whether your little one is having some kind of issue, has experienced some kind of fall or trauma, or you just want them to be the best they can possibly be, schedule an appointment to bring them in!
We have a problem in our society. We are so focused on killing the germs. Keeping them OUT! This outside-in approach will only take us so far as our immune system is concerned. You see, our immune system NEEDS things to fight off in order to stay STRONG! We have on average 5 POUNDS of bacteria in our gut which actually help keep the bad ‘bugs’ from taking over. Some say the gut is like the ‘brain’ of our immune system. So in a society so focused on killing and stopping ‘germs,’ what really is the best way to improve our immune function? Watch below to find out!
There are many, MANY other ways to help out this incredible system, but this will at least give you a GREAT start! And remember, CHIROPRACTIC CARE has been shown over and over to help improve our immune function. Not just to boost it (which would not be good for folks with autoimmune issues), but to help it regulate itself, whether up or down. This is one of the reasons getting adjusted can actually help with ALLERGIES.
I hope this helps you to live a healthier, happier, and STRONGER life, and if you have any questions or comments, please let us know.
So for a few years now this word ‘Wellness’ has been thrown around quite a bit, without many of us actually knowing what it truly is. Most of us think of it as having something to do with being healthy, but we also hear it used to promote things like flu shots, and over the counter meds. In the over 13 years I have been in practice, I’ve learned it can be simplified into 3 main points:
- How we Move
- What we put into our bodies
- How we think
We are embarking on a new project here at Wellness Pittsburgh: a video series that will focus on how to be truly healthy and well. Have a watch!
