Why should my child get adjusted?
A great deal of research has been done on the benefits of chiropractic care for children. Spinal dysfunction or nerve irritation at any age can cause pain, decrease motion or change movement patterns. This becomes more important during developmental years because of the spinal problems seen in adults. Many of these problems start in children. Chiropractic improves spinal function, thereby optimizing the body's ability to heal. Each stage of our life subjects us to a variety of situations which may create spinal problems.
Infants: In addition to the birth process, infants are stressed due to the simple strain of holding their head up. They also have a number of bumps and falls from learning to crawl, stand and walk. Often, parents seek chiropractic care for their infants due to chronic ear infections, colic, asthma, add/adhd or other childhood ailments.
Children: They can suffer from various injuries while playing, and from contact sports, as they often start at a very young age. They may also have poor posture from sitting improperly at school, watching television or playing video games.
Teenagers: They are more than likely going through many challenges and the resulting stresses of puberty, advanced educational and athletic demands and an ever changing social structure. Many are also experiencing rapid growth with strain on the muscles and joints.
