Back To School With Upper Cervical Care
Adapted from BACK TO SCHOOL by Hal S. Crowe, Sr., DC / Voice For Health
Children have recently finished a summer break from school that was filled with changes in routine, extra play time, sunshine and fresh air. Activities of summer are typically invigorating and healthy for kids. At the same time, as you have watched your children play with youthful energy while they run, fall, dive, suddenly change directions, jump, twist and interact with others with playful contact, wouldn't you say that their primary shock absorber has been put to the test?
The primary shock absorber for the body is the spinal column, with its fiber-cartilage discs between the bony vertebrae and the forward and backward curvatures that afford the body's framework with both elasticity and rigidity. Sure, children are far more resilient than adults when it comes to tumbles and impacts, but they too are subject to spinal misalignments that can result in interference to the nervous system.
With youngsters, if a structural impediment is present it may be so slight that it is not readily discernable to parents. The evidence that all function is not up to par may not be noted. The child may not complain about pain in the back or neck.
Now children are back in school, back to a daily routine and less physical activity. The restrictions and confinement of the classroom are restraints to which youthful nervous systems are challenged to adapt. The attentiveness and effort to complete lessons are, to many children, a further strain upon their nervous system. These stresses, coupled with slight structural impediments to nerve action, can result in digestive disorders, throat or breathing complications, ear problems, urinary and elimination upsets, and much more.
Many parents have witnessed a dramatic improvement in their school children's performance and enthusiasm following upper cervical care. The upper cervical doctor checks the child's spine for signs of interference and methodically analyzes and reduces the interference to the nervous system due to head neck misalignment. When the congestion and pressure are cleared from the circuitry that keeps all the bodily systems working in harmony and at their optimum, the possibilities are so great that no child should be deprived of the advantages of upper cervical care.
Reinforce the health of your children and their progress in school with periodic upper cervical care.
