Chiropractic and ChildrenIt is important to maintain children’s spines as they grow and develop. From the day a baby is born there is stress on the spine. 80% of babies will have a subluxation in the upper neck just from the birth process. As children start to become mobile there will be many falls and impacts. These impacts will put force into the spine and may cause some misalignment and subluxation. If these misalignments aren’t removed they may cause the spine to deviate from normal posture and biomechanics, which will in turn affect the nerve signals to the body. This may manifest itself in things like:

  • Colic
  • Bedwetting
  • Growing pains
  • Ear aches
  • Reduced immunity (getting sick more often)
  • Muscle pain
  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Constipation

Even if children do not present with any symptoms it is still important to get a checkup, just as it is important to get adults checked. It is far better to be proactive than reactive. Symptoms are often the last thing to occur and postural problems can exist for years before they arrive. Chiropractic for children is safe and gentle and very effective.
