We are often asked, “Why do kids need chiropractic care?” If you think about it, the answer is obvious.
First of all, think about the trauma that a child is subjected to. It can start at the very beginning of life with a difficult delivery or a forceps delivery. There are numerous falls while learning to walk, ride bikes, skateboards, etc. Children are also subjected to the stress of carrying heavy backpacks to school, sports and often, poor posture.
Many of the problems that we suffer today as adults began from traumas that we had as children. The falls and stresses take a toll on young joints. While children may not often experience the “back pain” that adults suffer from, other complaints such as headaches, neck pain, and other joint pains are common. These then become the early stages of more trouble, as we get older.
In addition to various pains that a child may suffer, chiropractic care has been shown to improve the function of the immune system, help with an ear infection, ADHD and even asthma among others.
Adjusting techniques are modified for children. Most kids really like their adjustments. If you are unsure if chiropractic care is appropriate for your child, call us for a FREE CONSULTATION. You will be able to discuss your concerns with one of the doctors and get answers to your questions.
Conservative care is usually a better option than bombarding our kids with more drugs.
