Hi everybody, Dr. Jodi Kinney here. Today we’re doing a video about school aged kids getting adjusted.
Pediatric Chiropractic Care for Kids
So kids who go to school and around other kids their age typically get a lot of colds and snotty easily, maybe even allergies and sometimes stomach bugs. So one of the ways that we help kids stay healthy is with Chiropractic because Chiropractic helps intimately correct the spine and the nervous system, which helps to control the immune system. So today, I’m going to address my patient, Adeline, she is five and a half and she started with me because she had allergies. Now her allergies are much more manageable and she’s been doing really well under Chiropractic. So start by checking our little hips and her leg length, making sure that there’s anything out of alignment that we have to work on. So the table is going to lift and drop it, so breathe in and let all the air out.
Lower Back & Neck Adjustments
Bring your arm through now and I’ll just do a gentle lower back adjustment. Oh, good job, and now go the other way. It’s nice and easy and gentle adjusting kids. Nothing hurts, right? That was great! Now you’re going to lie on your back and I’m going to adjust your neck. The nerves that come from the very top of the neck and this area here are the ones that go to the nose, sinuses, and inner ear. So things like ear infections, allergies, sinus infections, sore throats, strep throat. So real gentle pressure on the neck. That’s all you have to do for little kids. And one more, then you’re almost done. Perfect. And you’re all good. And that’s how easy it is to just kids. We highly recommend children get adjusted for overall health for wellness.
Most kids don’t come for back pain and neck pain; they come because they have some issues with their immune system function. So come get your kid checked out to boost their immune system and stay as healthy as they possibly can be!
