In the next five blogs, I will reveal the top 5 tips on raising the wellness of children!

But first, I want to address an important question.

When it comes to raising healthy children, how would a chiropractor and a medical professional proceed?

There are two significant differences that exist between the ‘chiropractic wellness’ approach and the ‘medical approach’ to health as each sets a different goal and a different course of action.

Firstly the medical profession views the human body as a conglomerate of chemical and mechanical functions so that when a health challenge arises, doctors look specifically at the problem area and take a “we’ve got to fix it” approach. This might be through eradicating germs that they credit with creating disease or through offering drugs or surgery. The focus is to reduce symptoms and to address health issues in a disease-oriented model.

Wellness chiropractors see the body as a whole, acknowledging that the body works together. So that when we compromise, or tax one area of our body, other areas can, in time, become vulnerable.

Most of us are aware that our nervous system controls and coordinates every function of the body. Still, we may not appreciate that there a significant number of stressors that accompany our modern lifestyle, which taxes our spine and nervous system. These lifestyle factors move a body out of balance and threaten our health. Chiropractors ask questions like, “How can we help the body recreate balance and good function?” and “What part of this person’s environment is taxing their health?” Chiropractors take a vitalistic view of the human body, respecting the body’s innate or inner intelligence and adjust the spine to stimulate the body’s natural ability to recreate balance, order, and healing.

While current health issues are addressed, wellness chiropractors are most excited about helping clients become proactive about all facets of their health.
