A healthy nervous system equals a healthy child. Discover how our natural care may help optimize your little one’s well-being.

For parents and kids, back to school can be the most wonderful time of the year. Getting a new backpack, choosing new clothes, and rounding up all those school supplies on the list is often fun and exciting, but it’s also common for children to feel some apprehension about the new school year. Some common concerns include the following: Will I like my teacher?
Will I fit in? 
Who will I sit with at the lunch table? 

Children’s emotional health is vital, particularly when embarking on a new school year. Chiropractic care is an essential part of having a balanced nervous system that allows children to engage appropriately with the world around them and their environment.

Keeping Kids in Growth Mode

It’s crucial that children be in growth mode, so that their nervous system can regulate their bodily functions, and kids can develop physically and neurologically. If a child is in stress mode, it counteracts all those efforts.
We want to maintain a healthy nervous system to filter all the stresses from the world to form an appropriate response, and not shift too much into that fight or flight hypervigilant state, because it affects a child’s growth and development on a neurological level in terms of brain development and physical development.

Ensuring a Clear & Healthy Nervous System

Naturally, parents want their kids to grow up healthy and happy. With it being back to school time, it’s important that your child is prepared with their tank full and with a clear and healthy nervous system. By having your youngster get chiropractic now, they’ll be prepared for the various stresses of the school year, including homework and adjusting to new classes, teachers, friends, etc.

“Getting chiropractic care is a preventative action to take now, versus waiting for the routine to set in, and your child starts to feel bogged down or experiencing overwhelm or anxiety,” said Dr. Eva.

Chiropractic care can help kids stay ahead of that, because the adjustment balances the nervous system. Our focus is on the autonomic nervous system. There’s a gas pedal and brake pedal in the body. You want to be somewhere in the middle.

“There are times when it’s appropriate to put on the gas, and times when it’s appropriate to have the foot on the brake pedal. We don’t want kids stuck in one mode or the other,” added Dr. Eva.
