How Chiropractic Can Help Older Kids With Neurological Stress

Kids encounter stress from their environment and daily routines, and chiropractic care can be a highly effective solution. It is particularly useful for neurological stress in older kids, providing relief and contributing to their overall well-being.

Understanding Neurological Stress in Kids

Children, like adults, experience stress but manage it differently. Initially, many children manifest stress through colic, which is often dismissed as something they would outgrow. However, stress manifests in various forms as children grow, morphing into emotional and sensory regulation challenges. Here, the nervous system is continuously stressed, making the child highly sensitive to changes in the environment, loud noises, or bright lights.

Stuck in a State of Stress

According to Dr. Martinez, many kids are stuck in a stress state for years. “The root of that could be in multiple places in the nervous system, but most commonly, we find it in the Atlas. If we look at the history, we see that the child did have some sort of birth intervention, trauma, or fall or some type of physical, chemical, or emotional trauma early in life. That stress has been stuck in that child over all these years,” he said.

The Chiropractic Solution

Fortunately, chiropractic care can rapidly alleviate these issues. As kids usually bounce back much quicker than adults do, parents and chiropractors can observe a positive change in the child’s condition within a few visits. When a child receives chiropractic treatment, it acts as an effective “brake” to their neurological stress, allowing their bodies to heal. With consistent chiropractic adjustments, a child’s body gradually begins to hold the adjustment, leading to long-term benefits.
