Children and Chiropractic Medicine:
A spinal check-up is just as important as getting your teeth checked. The jumping, falling, running, and bumping of normal childhood can cause vertebral subluxations (rotations) that cause nerve interference leading to health problems. Having your child’s spine checked early can prevent injury, and boost the immune system therefore decreasing the need for medication.
Spinal adjustments for infants and young children involve a very light finger-tip adjustment to correct misaligned spinal structures. A light spinal adjustment, using no more than two pounds of pressure, can cause mobility to locked spinal joints; therefore, restoring normal nerve function.
Some childhood conditions helped through chiropractic care are:
- Ear Infections
- Sinus Problems
- Poor Coordination
- Poor Posture
- Back Pain (heavy back packs)
