September is always a special month in chiropractic
offices world-wide. Chiropractic was born September 18,
1895; which makes our profession 117 years old this
month. For most chiropractors this profession founded
over a century ago is our baby. We will do whatever it
takes to protect, serve and make sure chiropractic remains
the largest natural healthcare choice in this country. If you
have children then you understand this concept of doing

Chiropractic's 117th So, during this month, all of us at the chiropractic center
want to assist you in protecting your child's health. We
have declared this kids' month at our Glastonbury office
and would like to offer complimentary back to school
spinal evaluations for your children. This includes the
initial evaluation, x-rays, and report of findings.
In our country, we understand the importance of periodic
dental exams and x-rays. We want our children to have the

It is with our best intentions that we offer you an

More and more parents are having their children's spines and
nervous systems assessed. When you appreciate how causes of
nerve irritation (or vertebral subluxations) and their effects on the
child's health this makes sense. These irritations occur as a result of
normal every day stressors from physical, chemical and emotional
insults to their health, such as bad posture, knocks and falls, poor
food choices, dehydration, exposure to chemicals and toxins, and
stress and anxiety. Even before these lifestyle stressors have an
impact, nerve irritation can occur in the uterus from awkward
positioning, restriction of movement, and exposure to toxins, and
from birth complications such as long labors, very fast labors, or
forceps or caesarean delivery.
Ten Reasons to Bring Your Child for Chiropractic Care
1. To maximize your child's neural plasticity (brain and
nerve development).
2. To enhance your child's overall health and wellbeing.
3. To strengthen immunity and reduce the incidence of
colds, ear-aches and general illness.
4. To help with colic and Irritable Baby Syndrome.
5. To help with asthma, breathing difficulties and
