Just like ours, your child’s spine protects one of the most important structures in the body, the spinal cord. Stress, poor diet, hand held devices, bad posture, and injuries can cause improper alignment of your child’s spine causing unwanted pressure on the nervous system.

The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons have determined that carrying a load weighing more than 20% of your child’s bodyweight subjects him or her to serious spinal problems. As you are aware of, the nervous system controls and affects every physiological function of the body including taste, touch, hearing, digestion, breathing, elimination, immunity, and hormone production (American Journal of Pain Management).

Nobel Prize recipient Dr. Roger Sperry says that the spine is the motor that drives the brain. According to his research “90% of the stimulation and nutrition to the brain is generated by the movement of the spine.” Only 10% of our brain’s energy goes into thinking, metabolism, immunity, and healing. Dr. Roger Sperry demonstrated that 90% of brain energy goes into processing and maintaining the body’s relationship with gravity.

Dr. Seth Sharpless, a former neuropsychologist at the University of Colorado conducted studies on animals and determined how much pressure is required to create nerve interference. According to the report from this study, “a pressure of only 10 mm Hg produced a significant conduction block, the potential falling to 60% of its initial value in 15 minutes”.

So in layman's terms, 10 mm Hg is about the weight of a dime, not much.  Even this minimal amount of pressure was shown to block nerve impulses by 60% within 15 minutes of the pressure being applied to a nerve root!  Not good!

So why do I have to worry about my child?  Subluxations – misalignments of the spine are, by far, the most common source of nerve interference that undermine our health.  The good news is, according to the study, that the sooner subluxations are corrected and nerve interference is removed, the more likely it is that nerve recovery will occur.  The same report found that “after such a small compressive force is removed, nearly complete recovery occurs in 15 to 30 minutes”.  Translated this means that the nerve begins working properly after the pressure is removed.

Rather than just treating the symptoms, chiropractors seek the cause of your child’s symptoms, which could be caused by interference to the nervous system from misalignments in the spine.


When compared with children strictly under medical care, kids under chiropractic care had fewer ear infections, allergies, and lower incidence of tonsillitis (American Chiropractor 1993). A three-month study in the Journal of Physiological Therapeutic showed a 94% reduction in colic within 2 weeks. Dr. Ron Pero, NY Prevention Medicine Institute of Environmental Health reported that chiropractic can strengthen the immune system up to 200% stronger than those not receiving chiropractic care.

The sooner your child’s spine is evaluated, the sooner we may be able to detect harmful misalignment.  Call today, Natural Spine Solutions, 208-966-4425.
