When it comes to unnecessary medication, there is a disturbing trend in the United States. The U.S. makes 7-8% of the world’s population, yet we consume over 90% of the world’s drugs. I believe a reason for this is we are not addressing the true cause of medical conditions in the U.S.; we are simply using medication to cover up symptoms and pretend the conditions don’t even exist. When it comes to children, this is particularly alarming as more kids are on drugs for ADHD, colic, asthma, allergies, acid reflux, learning disabilities, sleep disturbances, and behavioral problems. A question to ask is: If all these medications were working, wouldn’t it make sense that these conditions would be on the decline rather than on the rise?
We offer an alternative solution to medication for infants and children through pediatric chiropractic care. We have seen great results with colic ear infections, constipation, ADD, ADHD, a reduction in learning disabilities, and a wide range of other improvements. Parents also tell us about improvements such as less crying at night and better sleep after their children receive pediatric chiropractic care. This means better sleep for parents too.
By working with children we hope to help reduce medication use and help parents to raise happy and healthy children.
