Chiropractic Can Naturally Support Your Child with Autism

baby onesie that says Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), refers to a broad array of conditions characterized by struggles with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. According to the Centers for Disease Control, autism affects an estimated 1 in 54 children in the United States today.

How Chiropractic Can Make a Difference

The focus of chiropractic care at our practice is on nervous system health to ensure the body is functioning optimally. Spinal misalignments disturb nerve communication in the body and affect how the body functions, including neurological function.

Nerve interference affects the central nervous system, which impacts the immune system and digestive system, as well as resulting in negative effects on social and emotional functions.

By removing spinal misalignments, we can help restore neurological function to the sensory, motor and autonomic systems.

Children with autism often struggle with immune challenges and constipation in addition to sensory or emotional issues. Our gentle chiropractic adjustments can restore balance to neurological functions to increase speech and language development and social skills. Chiropractic care also can boost the immune system and restore function to the digestive system for improved quality of life for children affected by autism.

Why Summer Is a Great Time to Get Your Child Help

If your child has been diagnosed with autism, we encourage you to bring them in as soon as possible this summer.

We’ve already seen some great changes in kiddos who started care over this last month. Summer is a time where parents can take advantage of more freedom in scheduling and a good opportunity to prepare them for the coming school year.

If you didn’t like how the school year went this past year (and who did?), and your child has some things to work on, now’s the time to get them into our practice. We can expect great things in the course of just a few months!
