How does your kiddos adjustments influence their brain function?

A chiropractic adjustment has been shown to light up the P R E F R O N T A L C O R T E X by 20%.

Trouble focusing, impulsivity, tantrums/meltdowns, emotional

dysregulation & trouble understanding the consequences of their actions, these are just some of the challenges we see on a daily basis improve under Chiropractic care.


When the Nervous System is Subluxated (stress/gas pedal stuck on) the Pre-Frontal Cortex shuts down. The Pre Frontal Cortex is our higher thinking and executive function brain, responsible for:


Decision Making


Problem Solving

Regulating Emotions

Impulse Control

Situational Awareness/Behaviour

Just to name a few.

Now this isn't just important during everyday life for us adults, but what about our kiddos who are in the midst of neurological development and learning how the world works, how to express themselves and how they fit into it?

When the stress response is stuck on, it can have significant impacts on a child's social, emotional and cognitive development, which looks like the challenges mentioned above, or could even manifest as full blown, diagnosed neuro-behavioural disorders (ADHD/ Sensory processing/learning challenges)

When we clear any interference in the nervous system, the Pre Frontal Cortex can engage and light up by 20%! Which makes a big difference to kiddos with these challenges and any kiddo in general to be their best in life! We are passionate to allow you and your kiddos to get the most out of life!
