Pediatrics: Children’s Chiropractic:
At our office we care for everyone that comes into our doors as if they were own family. We strive to help as many people as possible live the life they deserve. No matter what age, everyone has a spine and nerve system. We encourage everyone we know, and their family, to be checked by a Chiropractor.
The team at Koca Chiropractic have checked and adjusted all of their children within minutes of birth. We only want the best for our children and all the children in our Omaha community.
Why do we check babies? The birth process is not an easy one for mom or baby. That stress of twisting and pressure as the baby passes through the birth canal can cause the first subluxation in their tiny spine. That can interfere with the most powerful system of the body…the nerve system.
Adjustments for babies are the same pressure as if you were checking a tomato to see if it’s ripe. Soft, simple and safe for any age. We are blessed to be able to care for all sizes of your family members from little ones to great grandparents. We always give our best to every person no matter how big, small, a few days old or over 100 years old.
Being regularly checked by a chiropractor will improve your quality of life. More energy, better sleep, and a stronger immune system…who doesn’t want that?!?
Could Your Child Have an Ear Infection?
Everything is peaceful. You’ve just gone to bed. The little one is fast asleep. Then all of a sudden you hear a piercing cry coming from their room. If you are like the majority of parents this scenario is all too common or waiting to occur as 75% of children will have at least one ear infection by the age of 3. In fact, ear infections are in the top 10 reasons for admittance to the emergency room in the U.S. with 1.6 million visits in 2006. Chronic recurring ear infections will affect 25% of children and become a huge problem for the child and family. While the most common method of treating ear infections is the use of antibiotics, various pediatric guidelines recommend a watch and wait strategy as routine antibiotic use has been shown to be ineffective and potentially harmful.
For those parents looking to get to the root of the problem or prevent them in the first place, a trip to the chiropractor is one of the most common and effective methods. Chiropractors are specifically trained to locate and correct neurological stress known as vertebral subluxations. In the upper neck, delicate nerves supply the muscles that open and close the eustachian tube. When subluxation is present, altered function of these muscles can cause the tubes to not drain properly. Just like a stagnant pool of water that draws mosquitos, fluid trapped in the middle ear is ripe for bacteria and viruses to flourish. Once the subluxation is corrected with gentle and safe chiropractic adjustments, normal function can return and the body is able to heal naturally. Countless children and families have been helped with this natural, safe approach to health and well-being. To see if chiropractic can help your child and family, consult with a chiropractor specifically trained to care for children.
Get checked. Be adjusted. Live well.
