How can Chiropractic care and Craniosacral therapy help my child through this RSV and flu season?
While it may seem like Chiropractic care would only be for pain there are actually numerous added benefits to being under care for overall health and wellbeing.
As you know this winter season is hitting hard. More kids are sick than usual. Hospitals are overwhelmed and all we are doing as moms is trying to survive through it while trying to stay well ourselves.
RSV and flu are both viruses—meaning antibiotics do not treat them. I repeat they are viruses. Since there are no current magic pills to help fight viruses we have to rely on our bodies and any extra support we can provide to fight them off. This is where Chiropractic care along with Craniosacral therapy can help.
By keeping the spine in alignment the body is getting nerve impulses sent from the body to the brain and back without any interference. Imagine a kink in a water hose. When our spine is out of alignment there is a kink in the water hose and the messages can’t be sent up and down the spine as efficiently. This can greatly impact our immune system and its ability to function properly. We advocate for preventative wellness Chiropractic care before your child is sick but there is no wrong time to come in. If they are sick they can benefit from an adjustment.
With both RSV and flu there is also quite a bit of coughing. This can make the diaphragm and ribs sore, achy and lock down. Through Craniosacral therapy and diaphragm releases we can open up the rib cage to help your child get deeper breaths and therefore increase the oxygen being pushed to the rest of their body.
Along with these benefits there are many natural remedies that can be discussed and recommended after troubleshooting what your child is struggling with most. Give us a call today to see how we can help!
