Children & Family Care
Millions of parents bring their children to chiropractors to ensure that they stay as healthy as possible, and to discover the underlying cause of health concerns. More and more it is becoming clear that excessive antibiotics, inhalers and other medications may be negatively afecting the health of our children, rather than enhancing it.
Parents want to achieve a state of true health for their entire family, and understand that while drugs have their place, they are often not the road to optimal health.
All children get runny noses, coughs etc. However, some children seem to “catch” everything and when they do it seems to turn into an ear infection, chest infection or worse. Why do some children o through daycare without constant sickness and medication free yet others seem to be chronically getting sick? It is very unlikely that it is because they are exposed to more germs than other children. It may be that they have become better “soil” for the germs to grow in. Perhaps their immune systems aren’t functioning at as high a level, leaving these children more vulnerable to sickness. What system controls your immune system? Your nerve system…which is directly affected by the alignment of your spine.
Parents bring their children to chiropractors for day-to-day health concerns we’re all familiar with: colds, sore throats, ear infections, fevers, colic, constipation, asthma, tonsillitis, allergies, bed-wetting, falls, stomach-aches, and the hundred and one little and big things children go through as they grow up.
Chiropractic is not a treatment for disease, and yet children who get adjusted take fewer medications, why is this? Chiropractic’s purpose is to ensure that the nerve system, the immune system and all systems of the body function maximally and without interference. A healthy immune system means that your child is able to fight off the everyday germs they are surrounded with and stays healthy more often. And of course, a healthy spine ensures he or she will grow optimally.
Chiropractors who care for children use very specific, gentle techniques. At Pure-Health we feel grateful to care for many children. In fact, the doctor’s own children (who aren’t really children anymore) have been adjusted since birth.
Today’s parents are informed and are looking for ways to keep their children healthy…naturally.
Parents are increasingly asking, when handed a prescription for a child’s recurrent problem, “Is this really all I can do for my child? Isn’t there a safer option? How can I restore health?”
Chiropractic care enhances the body’s ability to heal and stay healthy…whether that body is 2 years old or 92.

Every system in our body including the immune system is coordinated and controlled by the nervous system. When your immune system functions at a higher level, you stay healthier.
It’s that simple.
Studies have proven that an adjustment causes an immediate immune boost. In fact, disease-fighting white blood cells increase significantly within minutes of a chiropractic adjustment. A few stats:
-93% of children with ear infections/ear pain improved with Chiropractic care. 80% of these children had no further episodes for at least 6 months.
-70% of Colic clears within 5 days, over 90% after 2 weeks
-Children with Asthma report increased lunng function and decreased use of medication.
