More and more parents are seeking natural approaches with regards to their child's healthcare. They recognize that proper nutrition, adequate rest and play, and an enriching home and school environment allows children the best opportunity to thrive and be well. That being proactive with regards to health is much easier than constantly managing symptoms and illness.
Chiropractic care can be a key part of that proactive approach. Research shows that many health challenges seen in adults began as early stress on the nervous system that may have started at birth. Undue stress on the nervous system--the system that runs your child's immune system and controls and coordinates every function of their body can have a lasting impact on their health. At Pine Coast, we understand that their health is your top priority. We offer a safe, gentle and holistic solution to correct the cause of many symptoms and health challenges. Our office provides a welcoming, calm environment that is very kid friendly and our goal is to make you and your child feel as comfortable as possible every time you walk through our door. When you're here, you're family.
The Birth Process
Most people understand that a woman giving birth is a very physical process. What many people fail to understand is just how physical that same process is on the baby. Whether it is a vaginal or cesarean birth, it is not an easy journey being born. This is when the first misalignment, known as a subluxation, often occurs in the baby's spine. In babies that have limited space in-utero or who are breech, a subluxation could be something that occurs prior to birth.
Babies can be adjusted within seconds of birth and early adjustments help set the foundation for a healthy future. Dr. Stacey and Dr. Mike have had the honor of adjusting babies that were just minutes old and have been able to be there for many parents to adjust their children in those important first days after birth.
Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to help address the underlying cause of many health challenges in children.
