Chiropractic Care for Children

Chiropractic care offers the benefit of better health and well-being in children. Spinal stress and trauma can occur at birth, affecting the infant’s spine and the developing nerve system. It can lead to various health complaints such as: colic, reflux, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions and chronic infections. Therefore, it is essential for parents to have their new-born’s spine checked right after birth.

The physical development process in children such as learning to hold the head erect, sitting upright, crawling, and walking can affect spinal alignment. In addition, children also experience physical stress from other activities such as falls, sports injuries and playground bumps which create stress on the spine and nervous system. Seeing a chiropractor regularly can avoid spinal problems in children as they grow.

Chiropractic care is safe and effective for children. The chiropractor will examine the child’s spine to evaluate. Chiropractic skill locates specific spinal areas which need gentle adjustments that are appropriate for an infant and child’s spine and cranium.
