Ever noticed how responsive and reactive kids are to just about everything?
Even though they’re immune systems are still developing, neurologically they are way more sensitive.
We think this is because they have different brain patterns and this causes their nervous systems to react differently to adults.
I’m a Chiropractor and in practice I find children generally need far less Chiropractic adjustment, and far less force with each adjustment as compared with adults.
I call this the 10x phenomenon.
10 adjustments for an adult is one for a child.
Now this is my observation and other Chiropractors may argue this point. This is what I observe in my practice and I’ve been doing this for over 20 years.
The LESS IS MORE concept, I feel applies much more in kids as it does in adults, in general.
Of course, there are always exceptions, specific problems which need to be managed however, in my view kids respond very quickly and with very little input.
It’s a bit like the ripple effect.
Have a chat to your Chiro about this and let me know your thoughts.
