Chiropractic For Infants & Children
Most people do not realize that infants and children are just as much in need of chiropractic care as adults. Infants, in particular, are susceptible to a wide range of possible ailments related to slow or traumatic birth and c-sections.
These misalignments or subluxations put pressure on the delicate spinal nerves and interfere with the body’s ability to coordinate and control all phases of growth and development. Chiropractic for infants can help correct these potential problems through careful yet effective adjustments to remedy misalignments as they are identified.
Chiropractic care helps to promote health growth for children and teenagers
Children particularly need pediatric chiropractic care as they age because many of the problems we experience as adults actually come from our childhood – either because we fell (think about how many times a day a baby falls when they are learning to walk, sometimes 10-20 times per day), broke something, or simply had poor posture (which is extremely common today).
Posture problems particularly result from spending many hours in front of a computer or television, or playing rough, or carrying backpacks all day long at school. The most prevalent cause of problems, though, is sports, dance, cheerleading, and gymnastics. All of these activities exert a tremendous amount of stress on the spinal column, which can result in misalignments that can cause pain and problems decades down the road.
It is best to deal with any potential injury, misalignment, postural problem or other ailment and condition as soon as possible when it is identified. After all, the nervous system controls and coordinates every stage of growth and development; you should want to keep your child’s nervous system as healthy as possible through regular treatment.
