What To Expect


We believe that every child should have the opportunity to have their spinal core checked for subluxation BEFORE symptoms of poor health or spinal problems emerge.  The ever changing developmental stages of a child gives great reason as to why we at Core Health utilize superior technology so we may Gauge and never guess on your child's health.

If you study Latin, you might know that the clinical term “subluxation” refers to “less than full light”. Chiropractors use this term to describe a form of spinal nerve interference that dulls the spinal nerve signals controlling our health, wellness and vitality. The spinal column or spinal core is filled with nerve connections linking the brain to the body. It is a system that is designed to be durable, yet incredibly sensitive and alert to the tiniest of stressors. It is the body’s growth, development and repair lifeline that must be cared for from birth throughout an entire lifetime. 

As a result of the effects of subluxation we have invested into state-of-the-art technology in order to provide the best care and recommendations possible.  

Today’s advancements in technology allows for our office to check any child of any age for subluxations. Nerve interference is likely to be painless and symptomless in its early stages. However, subluxations do alter the electrical nerve signaling in and around the spine. If the subluxations are more involved, they can actually alter the temperature around the spine and the regularity of the heartbeat. This is why highly sensitive sensors had to be developed for use with babies, children, adolescents, adults and even seniors. The incredible INSiGHT “Subluxation Station” was designed to detect these small but dangerous interference patterns by simply placing sensors on the spine and checking the heartbeat.

Children are the most vulnerable to subluxation. They are rapidly growing and developing while exploring their environment. Continual bumps and falls can place unhealthy strain on the spine. Poor seated posture, especially in adolescents, can create subluxations. Diets high in sugars, corn syrup and preservatives are actually toxic to the nervous system. Add emotional stress to the mix and the body’s control circuits are continually overloaded. As this overloading continues, reactions occur throughout the child’s developing spine and nervous system.

Here are the 4 most common symptoms of a subluxated child:
1. Failure to thrive/ fatigue/ lethargy
2. Distracted concentration/ altered behaviors
3. Lowered immunity with recurrent infections
4. Heightened environmental sensitivities and allergies

Interestingly, spinal pain and symptoms are not the primary complaint of a subluxated child or adolescent. These certainly can come later as the muscles and joints develop, but it is the non-spinal symptoms that are most troubling to parents and chiropractors.
