Breaking Free from Constipation: A Holistic Approach

toddler on balance bikeDoes your little one seem uncomfortable with bowel movements? Is it because they don’t poop frequently, and each session seems to be a struggle? You’re not alone— constipation is a common problem among kids. Let’s take a look at a holistic approach to dealing with constipation that applies to everyone, including adults.

The Need for Regular Elimination

It’s a myth that it’s normal for kids to poop every 7 to 10 days. The fact of the matter is regular elimination is crucial for overall health. Good digestion is fundamental to our well-being, regardless of age. You can try traditional ways like prune juice, coffee, better hydration, more fiber, better sleep time, and physical activity to promote regularity.

Power of Physical Activity

Nourishing your body with frequent physical activity is also key to staying regular. Engaging your body in different ways, such as running, jogging, walking, or even squats, can help get things moving—literally. This is especially helpful for older kids or adults with sedentary lifestyles.

Get Things Moving With Chiropractic

When traditional methods aren’t enough, we invite you to consider chiropractic care. From a chiropractic standpoint, the sacrum, a triangular bone in the lower part of our spine, plays a significant role in digestion. Especially in kids who start to walk and fall often, the sacrum needs adjustments. This could be the key to unlocking your child’s digestion.

At Innate Family Chiropractic, we use thermal scanners to assess the heat imbalances within the digestive zone. This helps us to zero in on the cause of the problem and find a solution for it. The brain, which controls and regulates everything in the body, including our digestive system, sends a signal down our spinal cord and to the nerves that go to the digestive organs. If this signal is obstructed, it can very likely lead to impaired digestion.

According to Dr. Chris, the good news is that more than 50% of kids dealing with constipation start to see a noticeable change after one to two adjustments.

Book an Appointment

If your child’s constipation issue persists, we invite you to book an appointment with Dr. Chris or Dr. Adana. They are skilled in assessing the issue and are equipped with the right tools and knowledge to provide a solution.
