Focus on Health:
Children and the ProAdjuster!
Have you ever heard the saying: AS THE TWIG IS BENT SO GROWS THE TREE? Children have important needs when it comes to their spine, and gentle chiropractic care will help identify early problems and help educate parents while correcting any misalignment related structural needs.We think nothing of having our children’s teeth and eyes checked on a regular basis, yet many times we neglect the importance of spinal check-ups!
Children are very active, they play hard, and many of them are involved in competitive sports. Sometimes all of this physical activity can put an undue stress on their spine. The spine is home to the spinal cord, which is the most amazing bundle of nerves that controls every function in the body. Even the slightest misalignment can cause interference in this process and leave the child vulnerable to a host of issues.
At Advanced Chiropractic and Wellness Centre we pride ourselves on having a pediatric and family practice. Dr. Ting has been treating children, from newborns to 17 yrs, with the ProAdjuster and Activator techniques for over 10 years. Childhood should be a time of fun, growth and preparation for a healthy adulthood. They shouldn’t be plagued with adult-type problems such as fatigue, headaches, nervousness, poor concentration, back pain, or irritability. Our natural approach to health can be a wise investment in your child’s future!!
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your children’s health, please don’t hesitate to call the office or ask Dr. Ting at your next visit.
Product of the Month
Bifidobacteria, or “friendly bacteria,” produce certain acids that help lower the pH level of the large intestine and maintain a slightly acid environment. This inhibits the growth of “unfriendly bacteria” in the colon. Emotional stress, antibiotic therapy, disease, and certain foods, deplete your body’s population of bifidobacteria, leaving you susceptible to the harmful effects of unfriendly bacteria. You can help increase your and your kids bifidus count with Bifidus Plus Yogurt, which contains high levels of live cultures of bifidobacteria.
These chewable tablets have a sweet vanilla flavour, so it will be easy for your kids to take.
