As a child is growing and developing, it is very important that they get adequate sleep, maintain a proper diet, get enough exercise, and so on. Lack of sleep and a poor diet are often a major contributors to other issues in kids, such as ADHD, stunted brain growth, developmental issues, and behavioral problems. Other underlying health issues can contribute to child’s poor behavior and their inability to get adequate sleep, and vice versa.
What most people don’t realize is that a Lithia Springs chiropractor, like Dr. Ronnie Bolar at Vital Life Chiropractic, can provide care that gets to the root of any child’s problem, particularly when it comes to sleep disturbances and behavioral issues.

It’s not uncommon for many parents to seek out specialized medication in order to alleviate behavioral issues. However, the problem with medication as a solution to those problems is that medication is only a temporary fix or a mask for the problem and it doesn’t get to the root of the issue. Behavior-altering medications also can change the personality of your children and affect other parts of their lives, such as their sleep habits and their appetite.
Since sleep and behavior in kids often go hand-in-hand, it’s important that parents find a natural and effective way for their children to get enough sleep and simultaneously alleviate other behavioral issues. This is where Lithia Springs chiropractic care comes into play as a natural, non-invasive solution for sleep and behavioral issues.
