Children and Chiropractic

DSCN0983A child’s spine is often subjected to repeated forces in the process of as they learn to walk, plus go through various childhood mishaps, sports related injuries, and postural strains.  Fortunately, chiropractic has had many positive results in treating some very common childhood maladies. Problems like colic, headaches, ear infections, scoliosis, and even asthma have been successfully treated with chiropractic care.  This is why it is important to have your child’s spine checked regularly for any signs of spinal imbalances or misalignments.

 

Is chiropractic safe for children?

Because a child’s skeletal system is still developing, there is a great deal of elasticity within the joints.  Light pressure is usually all that is needed to adjust a child’s spine. So the next time you come to our office, bring your children.
