TIME AND YOUR HEALTH
By Dr. Jennifer L. Franz
school year has begun; many of us have children or know of children
who are back in the busy school time schedule. It is an exciting
time, however, sometimes challenging with the stress of making new
friends, learning new things, winning for the team, and the changing
seasons ahead of us. Developing children are usually quite active,
in addition to these simple stresses to them. When stress of
any kind affects the body, our freely moving spines misalign or subluxate.
The nervous system that is housed within your spine is directly affected
by even the slightest pressure put upon it. Without proper motion,
conditions develop such as learning disabilities, ADHD, asthma, stomach
troubles, recurrent ear infections, visual problems, and lowered immune
systems to name a few.
a developing child, actually many of the first subluxations occur
at birth. The birthing process often puts a tremendous amount
of torsion and pressure upon an infants pliable neck in order to get
them out of the birth canal. This aiding in birth puts undo
stress on the infant and left untreated can cause serious deficits
such as learning disabilities, visual and hearing disturbances, and
ADHD. That is why it is imperative that children be checked
not only during school age but more importantly after birth.
There is no guarantee that Chiropractic can cure everything, but there
is a guarantee that your nervous system functions better when there
is no nervous interference to it.
have shown that children who are under regular Chiropractic care perform
better in school, have better attention spans and less symptoms of
ADHD, have fewer ear and eye infections, as well as have fewer if
any winter colds and flu’s. Of course, regular Chiropractic
care is one part of a healthy individual, as is proper nutrition,
adequate rest, and a healthy happy environment and mental attitude.
My goal is to help children, as well as adults, utilize all of the
aspects of optimum health and well-being so that they can develop
at their full potential. I have treated children ranging from
newborn to 92 years young. Everyone benefits from Chiropractic
care, especially young developing children. I am trained in
many specific, safe, gentle, and effective techniques to best help
people of all ages. I myself being raised by a Chiropractor
and adjusted since I was an infant, have been healthy my whole life,
