Over 60% of neurological development occurs after birth in a child's first year of life; that is so crucial to have a child's spine evaluated for neck problems that can manifest as health problems as a child or as an adult years later.
Children deserve to enter the world as healthy as possible. While we support a natural approach to birth whenever possible, we acknowledge the effect trauma can have on both baby and mom during the labor and delivery process, particularly when medical interventions such as vacuum extraction, episiotomy, caesarean sections and other surgical procedures are employed. Even in the North American “natural birth” the force exerted on a babies neck is 60 – 90 lbs. In the current healthcare economy, birth trauma is frequently ignored, overlooked and in many cases misdiagnosed. The research is clear that upper neck problems are found in new borns (even without any obvious symptoms). We care for many infants in this office. Many parents bring their babies in a few days after birth to have them checked for nerve interference. This is really crucial since the birthing process can be very traumatic to their delicate spines. Many childhood ailments can be resolved through specific chiropractic care.
After having two young boys of his own Dr. Glen takes a special interest in pediatrics. It is very important that the parents have their children checked in our office as soon as possible so we can help them live a healthy drug free life the way it is intended. When performing an adjustment on a child, skilled and experienced chiropractor like Dr. Johanson need only use a minimal amount of force, analogous to the pressure used to check the skin of a ripe tomato, and can even be performed while the child is sleeping!
If you have any concerns about your child’s health please call our office and schedule a complimentary consult with Dr. Johanson. The best way to raise healthy children is the natural way, drug free the way we are all created to live.
Chiropractic care seems to be a universal method of treatment used by all kinds of people. Since receiving frequent chiropractic care I have noticed an improvement in my posture, sleep, energy, and emotional balance. My advice to people I know is that chiropractic care is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Glen has been great and I would highly recommend him.Kyle D
Initially my chiropractic care was to treat “back pain”. I had thought about spinal health, but my thought was pain = improper alignment. Today my thought is proper alignment = proper function = health. I tell my network that chiropractic care is a part of my overall health. One of the largest improvements in my life has been my quality of sleep.Amanda H
