OMAHA, Neb., May 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fox42 News featured Chiropractic Health Clinic in a recent news segment about the increase in children receiving pediatric chiropractic care. The news segment discussed how chiropractic adjustments are being used as an alternative treatment option to help manage everything from asthma to bed wetting in young children. Fox42 News interviewed Bonnie Giles, the grandmother of Chiropractic Health Clinic patient Aubree. Giles discussed how chiropractic care is helping Aubree with bedwetting and her desire to seek an alternative treatment to medication. Chiropractor Dr. Andrea Eiler, who treats Aubree, also discussed the benefits of pediatric chiropractic care.
Omaha chiropractor Dr. Andrea Eiler was recently featured on Fox42 News discussing the benefits of pediatric chiropractic care. Pediatric chiropractic care is an increasingly popular service that is offered through her practice, Chiropractic Health Clinic. Children may receive adjustments to address a host of health problems, including asthma, bedwetting and colic.
"Traditionally, we think of chiropractic care as a drug-free pain management technique," said Dr. Eiler. "But that's just half the picture. Chiropractic adjustments improve nerve system functionality, removing communication blockages that can aggravate health problems. A child's body experiences physical stress just like anyone else, and this physical stress is manifest in the nervous system's poor communication with the rest of the body. Chiropractic care helps to address these nervous system issues."
While chiropractic care cannot cure health ailments, Dr. Eiler told the Fox42 News team that chiropractic adjustments can help to relieve symptoms and reduce the need for medication.
That's one reason Bobbie Giles says she takes her granddaughter Aubree, aged 5, to Chiropractic Health Clinic for treatments. In an interview with Fox42 News, Giles says she like chiropractic care because it is an alternative to medication and antibiotics, which can deplete the immune system. In addition to addressing Aubree's bed wetting, Giles says that chiropractic adjustments help reduce the need for antibiotics and also help with ear infections.
Chiropractic adjustments are effective with children because they bring proper alignment back to the spine following the traumatic process of birth, says Dr. Eiler.
"Birth is a very tragic but very exciting time in someone's life," Dr. Eiler told Fox42 News.
"Being pulled out during birth can be a traumatic process that affects the upper neck, leading to cervical spine misalignments," said Dr. Eiler. "The earlier we can address these misalignments, the more we can do to ease communication through the central nervous system."
Dr. Eiler says that chiropractic adjustments are gentle and safe for individuals of all ages, including children, adults and seniors. "No matter your age, chiropractic care can make a big difference for improving overall health," said Dr. Eiler. "We see this especially with young children who may struggle with bedwetting or colic. Adjustments relieve underlying disturbances that are triggering these problems."
