Did you know, a child with subluxations in his or her spine will place their body into positions to relieve tension? As they lean away from the discomfort, they will adapt an abnormal cervical spine shape. If never corrected the body will grow in a twisted position. Some of the possibilities are a higher leg, shoulder or skull on one side. They may also develop a forward rotated shoulder shoulder and many other variations caused by being out of balance and alignment.
When an adult or a child reaches maximum adaptation, symptoms such as inflammation or disease arise. The benefit of a chiropractic adjustment reduces the adaptive and compensative response therefore reducing the pain, illness or discomfort. With a chiropractic treatment plan, the inflammatory response is also reduced and the chance of a disease arising is cut short. This is known as the chiropractic model of prevention. Treatment reduces distortion of the posture and removes tension off of the nervous system allowing the body to heal and recuperate its own health.
