According to recent studies by medical researchers and pediatricians, today’s children may be the first generation not to outlive their parents. With diseases that were once reserved for adults, we now have children with type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and elevated cancer rates.

Among the causes of such conditions were the garbage seen in almost every American home: candy wrappers, empty fast-food bags, plastic juice bottles, aluminum soda cans, hours of television, and silence in the streets where children used to play. Yes, we may currently be living with the first generation of American children who will be less healthy than their parents and may not outlive them.

In just 20 years, children are 2 times older than their parents of the same age. More than a third of American children are overweight. Asthma is on the rise and suicide is a leading cause of death in the United States. Even though our kids are on ADD/ADHD medication left and right, they still struggle with attention issues, depression, and malnutrition.

But there is a small percentage of children who seem to be immune to this industrialized Western deficiency in health phenomena. Interestingly, this small percentage of kids who stay healthy is made up of a group of kids who do one thing in common: receive chiropractic care.

According to recent studies, chiropractic care improved the overall health and quality of life in children who received treatment compared to children who were not under care. Children who underwent chiropractic adjustments reported fewer incidences of flu-like symptoms such as ear infections, asthma, and obesity complications as well as a general sense of well-being.

The current theory behind this phenomenon consists of protecting one of the body’s most vital systems: the human nervous system. The nervous system is protected by the skull and spine. This is why preventing spinal decay or taking care of your spine is one of the most important concepts that you have to understand. If your spine is healthy, then your spinal cord should be healthy. However, if your spine is misaligned or worse, your spinal cord will become ill and degenerate.

Today we have the means to detect, prevent and even restore normal spinal function of the spine and vertebrae. However, just like any form of care, early detection equals maximum medical improvement.
