"Your nervous system controls everything.
Chiropractic looks at the way your child's nervous system is functioning through feeling for small restrictions in the movements of the spinal joints. These restrictions are the body's way of communicating any imbalances. The nervous system controls what muscles tighten up and consequently, what joints are restricted. It can also work vice versa, the joints, be them irritated/sprained, may cause irritation back to both the nervous system and the surrounding muscles. By relaxing any stiff/irritated joints in the spine, the stimulus that may be causing the child to be irritable, is decreased, and the child then begins to feel more comfortable, more able to cope with everyday stimuli, and living with a nervous and immune system that is now functioning optimally. You may notice your child's response to treatment in other ways too – some feed easier, some wind easier and some are generally a lot more content during awake times." ~BabyCalm, http://goo.gl/Aww9P
