Children can greatly benefit from chiropractic care which is based on the principle relationship between the spine and the nervous system. The nervous system includes the brain, spinal cord, and millions of nerves, growing at such a fast rate during a child’s development, helping them to learn key skills early in life.
Dr. Madsen specializes in evaluating children’s spines to help improve their overall health. Proper joint motion is needed for optimal bone development; and a child’s bones will alter in response to outside physical stressors placed upon them. By balancing the muscles and joints, we are able to ensure that there are no structural restrictions or imbalances during this crucial growing stage.
As children grow, they experience once in a lifetime developmental windows. The status of a child’s nervous system directly affects how well your child is able to take advantage of the window of opportunity.
Dr. Madsen understands, first hand, how chiropractic care benefits children, because he has treated all three of his own since birth and has seen so many improvements. Her oldest child had issues with ear infections, and when their pediatrician wanted to give him special medicine, Dr. Madsen began realigning her child’s spine. As a result, he no longer has ear infections! The actual problem was a misalignment of the spine. Because of this, she has been aligning her other two children’s spines since birth and they have never had any ear infection issues.
