A Great School Year Starts With an Optimally Functioning Nervous System in Royal Oak MI

Chiropractic Royal Oak MI School Year

With the new school year upon us, we’d like to help your child have the best one ever. As a chiropractor and the mom to two daughters, I understand the importance of nervous system health in promoting optimal physical and emotional health in Royal Oak MI.

In my latest Facebook video, I talk about the Four T’s, the fear-based child and the stressed-based child, the five love languages, and the role of chiropractic in calming the nervous system. Below are some highlights of the video.

The Four T’s in Royal Oak MI

Trauma: From falls throughout childhood to small daily traumas like kids wearing backpacks that are too heavy or playing video games with poor posture, traumas can add up.

Toxins: Chemicals in food, those found in cleaning products, and chemicals that are put on the body in the form of toiletries can take a health toll.

Thoughts: From social media and school stress to homework loads and peer pressure, thoughts are what bring most kids into the practice.

Technology: While video games and cell phones are here to stay, setting limits on tech time and taking breaks to play outside can help.

In the video, I dive into each T and talk about how to manage them.

The Fear-Based and Stressed-Based Child

Kids who are fear-based worry about everything and tend to be shy from a young age. They don’t like to interact much, tend to be inward and have low energy. They can become depressed and withdrawn teens.

Stress-based kids have high energy as well as anger and tantrums. They don’t sleep well, and neither do their parents. A stressed-based child has a nervous system that is constantly spinning.

The Five Love Languages

It’s essential to determine what your kids’ love languages are so you can keep their bucket filled. In the video, I talk about each one: gifts, physical touch, acts of services, words of affirmation, and quality time.

Chiropractic Calms the Nervous System

To drive your car, you need both a gas pedal and brake pedal. Anxious kids have a gas pedal that’s always stuck. The brake pedal is the chiropractic adjustment. Our goal is to use chiropractic to help kids function optimally and be happy, healthy and well-adjusted.
