Chiropractic Care For Children
Children also benefit from regular adjustments!
Chiropractic care for children greatly contributes to their health and overall development. Your child’s first subluxation (misalignment of the spine) most likely came when they were first born. The birth process is a combination of compression, contractions, torques and traction, not to mention the use of obstetric instrumentation that may further amplify the effects of such forces or may induce injury alone. The birthing process can be a very traumatic event, causing a tremendous amount of stress on the spines of both baby and mother!
Since significant spinal trauma can occur at birth, many parents have their newborns checked right away. Chiropractic adjustments for infants and children are gentle and safe, and ensure they start life with a healthy nerve system, preventing the cause of many newborn and childhood health complaints. From learning to hold their head up, crawling and walking, to performing their first dance recital or touchdown, your child will experience all sorts of activities that will affect their spinal alignment. Having their spine checked on a regular basis will help prevent chronic subluxation and enable their nervous system to be free of interference and their body to function at peak performance.
