Can Chiropractic Help Children?
Children are more than ever needing chiropractic care. From the strain and trauma of the birth process and/or c-sections, misalignments can start from the beginning of life for some babies. Nursing difficulties, sleep disturbances, colic, ear infections, torticollis can all be signs to get checked by a chiropractor. Left untreated this stress affects the growth and development of the spine.
Older children are often seen by a chiropractor after a fall or sports injury. They are more likely to talk about pain, but it is a good plan to have their spine checked on a regular basis. With the continuous use of computers and technology, we are finding more stress to the neck and upper back than ever before!
Chiropractic is essential for the health of their spine and nervous system.
