Parents, this information may leave you a bit frustrated or upset, but I need to address a problem that’s been going on for far too long. Standard pediatricians have been telling parents that certain conditions are just a part of childhood and that their children will grow out of them. However, this is not the case.
If you have been up all night with your child who is experiencing colic, chronic constipation, reflux, or ear infection after ear infection, it’s essential to know that these issues will not simply go away on their own. If your child is struggling with tons of tantrums, meltdowns, developmental delays, and difficulty sleeping, don’t let anyone tell you that it’s just a phase.
I understand that as a parent, you know when something is not right with your child. You may have even been told to wait it out, but I want to assure you that there is more going on, just as your gut is telling you. The science behind these conditions is related to the central and autonomic nervous system, which is where pediatric chiropractic care comes in.
What Happens When There is Stress Built Up on the Nervous System?
Whether your child is two months old or fifteen years old, we have found that the neurology behind colic, sensory processing issues, autism, ADHD, anxiety, constipation, and chronic autoimmune challenges are the same.
It all comes down to the nervous system being subluxated, stressed, and stuck.
This is why it’s so important to look for the root cause of their challenges instead of just labeling it and sending you and your child off to different specialists. Pediatric chiropractors can help address the overactive and overstimulated sympathetic side of the nervous system in children with colic, sensory issues, and anxiety. The medical system does not understand functional neurology in the same way we do in our office.
If you’re only chasing symptoms, you’re not addressing the root cause. The nervous system controls everything from digestion to immune function, respiratory system, social-emotional regulation, and neurological development. By focusing on the nervous system, you can get everything else figured out.
Challenges you’ve been told your children will “grow out of,” like colic and chronic ear infections, can actually lead to chronic autoimmune challenges, allergies, and a compromised immune system that makes it easy to catch every cold that comes around.
Additionally, behavioral issues like tantrums, meltdowns, and hyperactivity are often dismissed as typical childhood behaviors. But these behaviors can be symptoms of larger issues related to neurological development, and they can cause anxiety, hyperactivity, and emotional challenges in school and later in life.
The Perfect Storm Pathway
Regardless of where you are in this perfect storm pathway, you deserve to know what’s really going on with your child. Keep learning about their health, and consider using advanced technology like our INSiGHT Scans to measure and locate the stress and subluxation in the nervous system.
Pediatric chiropractors who specialize in making adjustments that release stress and lower sympathetic tone can help your child get out of the “storm” caused by these challenges. Even older children can benefit from this kind of care, as the nervous system remains plastic and can be changed even after years of stress.
Our office is neurologically focused and uniquely equipped to address the common themes and threads behind all of these challenges. We provide drug-free action steps that can help your child and your family. If you aren’t local to us, check out our directory today to find a PX Doc near you.
