Andover MN Chiropractor Explains What’s Wrong With Your Kid?

Andover MN Chiropractor Explains
What's Wrong With Your Kid?

Chiropractic Andover MN Upset Child

As you are likely aware, we adjust a lot of children at Essentials of Life Chiropractic in Andover MN. In fact, if you look at the Chiro Kids Corner in our front lobby you will see handprints and footprints on canvases. The handprints are all the kids who received their first adjustment before the age of ten. The footprints are from infants who received their first adjustment in the first 12 months of life!

At ELC we praise parents who have their children under regular chiropractic care. Unfortunately, these same parents are criticized in the public domain. They are faced with questions like: "Why would you take your child to a chiropractor? Are they in pain? What's wrong with your kid?" These questions can be very IRRITATING!

How to Respond When Others Think Your Child is Sick

So how should our proud ELC parents respond? Here's what I would say…

"Nothing is wrong with my child. My child is healthy and I want to keep him/her that way. Chiropractic isn't just about pain. It's about health. For a child to be as healthy as possible, their spine and nervous system MUST be clear. THAT'S why I take my child to a chiropractor!"

Let me explain why ELC parents get asked this question. Chiropractic is grossly misunderstood by the general public. Why? Because chiropractors themselves have ruined chiropractic. Seriously, check out all the chiropractic ads out there-neck pain, back pain, headaches, auto accidents, sports injuries, and worker's comp! What is the general public supposed to think??

Misinformation About Chiropractic in Andover MN

But you're smarter than this. In fact I believe our ELC members understand chiropractic far better than the majority of chiropractors. So please be very patient with people when they question you about chiropractic. They are simply misinformed… and that is a PERFECT time to engage them in conversation. Start with, "what is your understanding of chiropractic?" Believe me, this one gets some interesting feedback.

The true principle of chiropractic is so inspiring for so many people. They just need to hear the message. The nervous system, which runs though the spine, controls the entire body. For the body to be healthy it MUST have a clear nervous system. This applies to ALL people of ALL ages, from newborn to senior citizen.

Anyone who values their health or their child's health will be inspired by this message…and maybe even motivated to have their nervous system checked, too!
