The birth process is often the cause of your child's first subluxation. Emotional stress, another cause of vertebral subluxation, is becoming a bigger issue for kids today as they try to cope with common scenarios like divorce, violence, and peer pressure.
The five major food allergens (chemical stressors) with children are; gluten, dairy, soy (infant formulas), corn (found in a majority of processed foods) and peanuts. Other chemical stressors to children are ingredients that can be found in vaccines. These include mercury, aluminum, hydrochloric acid, formaldehyde, ethylene glycol, latex and MSG.
The common mental stressors that affect children of all ages are often overlooked. One in eight children experiences anxiety, and it's often linked to fractured families, bullying and failure to succeed. Fifty percent of 13- to 15-year-old girls believe they are overweight, and 80 percent of 13-year-old girls have already tried dieting. Twenty percent of teens will experience depression and 30 percent will develop a substance abuse problem if not properly treated.
During puberty, numerous changes taking place in a teen's body can place significant demands on muscles, joints and bones. These changes can cause muscle imbalances, subluxations and injuries.
