Chiropractic Care for Kids
So this is my patient, Geo, he was having a lot of congestion, sinus congestion and ear infections. And we’re actually able to avoid getting tubes in his ears with adjustments. So I’m going to show you how do I adjust him today? Okay, Geo you ready, buddy? Yeah. All right. So here we go. We’re gonna start at the bottom, and he’s a little off on that left side. But Geo is such a big boy now getting adjusted that I adjust him like pretty much like I would adjust a regular older kid. So the tables gonna lift up and drop down like this. There we go Geo you ready? Give me a breath in buddy and then blow all the air out. Blow out. Awesome. One more. Oh, that was good. I got a little popcorn in there. Okay, now you’re gonna turn on your side and face me this way. Please. Cross your arms like this. And leg up. A little pressure on here. Okay. Go ahead and go the other way that was good. And so we adjust full spine with kids because the spine starts at the skull and goes all the way down to the back. So we want to make sure everything is all cleared out loud. Wow you had a lot of popcorn in there. Yeah, lie right on your back. Go ahead, straight legs out. Even put your hands on your belly button. Thank you. Now with kids, you don’t need a lot of pressure to adjust the upper neck spine because those bones are not bone yet. They’re all cartilage. So we just use a little tiny pressure, just like that and a little bit of movement.
And that helps to open up all the pathways from the nerves that feed into the inner ears, sinuses, nose and throat. And that’s how we are able to help Geo not have to have a surgery of getting tubes in his ears. Your done! How easy was that? So easy.
