Children and Chiropractic Care

Children and the nervous system

Marin Chiropractor

Research has shown that some of the earliest messages our brain receives have an enormous impact on our entire lives.

It is clear that early brain and nervous system development is the foundation of adaptability and resilience to all types of stress,meaning that it is critically important for kids to have a nervous system free from interference.

Children are especially vulnerable to both positive and negative influencers to the nervous system during their early years, while nerves are rapidly forming new connections and firing patterns.

Chiropractic can reduce blood pressure, heart rate, and stress hormones, release endorphins, and boost the immune system.

Whether you're hoping to ease your child's pain or improve their health, ChiroMarin can help.
