All jokes aside, constipation can be a serious issue for children.  Children should be going to the bathroom daily with good quality and consistency of their stools.  Children who do not go daily are at risk for twisting/torsion of the intestines or physical blockage.  This blockage can be problematic or at worst, life threatening.  Chiropractic techniques may be of assistance to children by decreasing physical blockages and improving neurological function.  Chiropractic and soft tissue manipulation techniques can help free restricted tissues and joints thereby decreasing the obstacles that affect normal bowel movements.  These same techniques may also improve parasympathetic nervous system function.  The parasympathetic nervous system is an area of the nervous system responsible for the “rest and digest” functions.  This part of the nervous system helps us digest food, retain nutrients and get rid of waste products.  Stimlation to this part of the nervous system by physical & mechanical techniques can help a constipated child.  Take a look at this clip to get a better idea of how these techniques work.  For more info, feel free to contact Dr.Dino or Dr. Marie us at 708-532-2346 or email the doctors at thecfim@gmail.com.
