According to the figures released by the National Association of Teachers, over 35% of all school aged children have been diagnosed and labeled disabled (including physical, mental and emotional disorders, as well as learned disabilities.) The fastest growing population in the United States is now children with disabilities. Millions of Children are being drugged everyday before going to school. These children need an opportunity to be treated naturally before resorting to chemical treatment with proven harmful side-effects. Many studies have been done on children and chiropractic and the following information was found:

In a study designed to determine the characteristics of 217 children attending a chiropractic college teaching clinic, it was found that pediatric patients had common complaints of ear-infections, sinus problems, allergies, bed wetting, respiratory problems, and gastro-intestinal problems, After undergoing chiropractic treatment, complete or substantial improvement was noted in 61.6% of pediatric patients.

In another study, Children from 27 days to 5 years old who suffered from ear infections were studied to determine if a correlation existed between chiropractic care and ear infections. It was found, that with chiropractic care, the recurrence rate over a six month period for acute ear infections was 11.02% and 16.34% for chronic ear infections. It was concluded that there is a strong correlation between the chiropractic adjustment and the resolution of ear infections for children in the study.

Chiropractic may help children with a number of health problems such as ear infections, colic, ADD/ADHD, gastro-intestinal problems, upper-respiratory infections, and many more. Every child should be checked for subluxations! To show you how strongly we feel about this, we check all children, free of charge, for subluxations. Schedule an appointment today at 317-849-2200.
