A healthy young spine is vital to many aspects of your child’s health. The nervous system can become compromised by injuries, participation in sports, and even technology use (think “text neck”). Sustained damage, however minimal, can affect the entire body – both systemically and skeletally. The T4, T5, and T6 region in the upper to middle back is central to the proper functioning of the liver, gall bladder, and stomach. Although not commonly thought of, chiropractic adjustments for your child may prove to be a useful and beneficial way to assist the body by realigning the spine and allowing the nervous system to optimally function. Chiropractic adjustments for children are a safer alternative than administering medications and may prove to be just what your child needs to aid in alleviating pain in their hurting tummies.
