Gentle Care of the Nervous System
Your child's nervous system coordinates everything from how he/she perceives their world to their thoughts, movement and behaviour. It is the spine that protects this delicate structure, and imbalances in this system change our brain and bodies function. Our Chiropractors are specifically trained to detect areas of dysfunction in the spine. It is important to realize that chiropractic is not the treatment of any condition. The purpose of chiropractic is to find and reduce stress and interference to the nervous system, allowing the person to experience greater function and an overall improved quality of life. The nervous system can also be affected by chemical irritants and emotional stress. We also help you figure out if your child needs help in these areas and we work with many other health professionals to help your child reach their greatest potential.
