- Get them moving!
- Movement of your spine and other joints provides constant input to the brain! Kids have to move and be active to be healthy.
- Social Buffering
-The buffering hypothesis is a theory holding that the presence of a social support system helps buffer, or shield, an individual from the negative impact of stressful events. Kids need positive and loving support from those around them. Did you know that a hug can cause a decrease in our cortisol (stress hormone) levels (1), increase oxytocin (our feel good hormone) and even improve our immune system? (2)
- Get them adjusted regularly!
- Healthy kids grow into healthy adults. Regular chiropractic care helps the body adapt and recover from outside stressors more easily, and ensures better feedback to the brain from better joint motion in the spine. (3)
