Hello, so I’m sure your wondering why I chose Billy The Life Cell for this weeks SigTalks episode. Well the reason is pretty simple. Sometimes I think we forget about our most important patients, that being the children. This simple story explains to kids and adults how the human body works. From the white blood cells and their job of fighting off infection to the communication between the brain and the body and how a subluxation can interfere with that communication. It touches on how symptoms work and how the body uses these symptoms to let us know that there is something wrong.
The story is only about 6 minutes long, but it educates everyone in a fun and memorable way. Dr. Sig was always trying to get his patients to understand the importance of chiropractic care for the entire family and how chiropractic is safe for children. There has been several large-scale research studies verifying the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic care for kids. The amount of force used to adjust an infant is comparable to the amount of force you use to test a ripe tomato at the grocery store. Those of you with kids know that they are certainly able to withstand a lot more pressure than that! We as chiropractors have been helping kids lead healthier lives for over 100 years, but why do kids need chiropractic care?
