Why Chiropractic Care? My Child is Not Sick or in Pain
Pediatric chiropractic care offers therapeutic treatment options for a wide range of conditions that affect infants and young children. Although most children are not suffering from back pain, many are dealing with illnesses and conditions that are just beginning – and now is a great time to stop them in their tracks before they progress any further! Birth is typically the first traumatic incident that many children face. A prolonged, traumatic, or complicated birth that involved spine, neck, or shoulder compression, pulling on the baby’s head, twisting, delayed birth, and many other conditions may have compromised the nervous system and/or skeletal alignment from the start. Additionally, repeated hard falls while learning to walk, sitting for hours on end, strapped and immobilized in various seats, and the numerous bumps and injuries common in any child’s life may have created a situation ripe for the development of serious misalignment and nerve dysfunction. Even if your child does not appear to be sick or in pain, we can perform an evaluation to make sure that he is starting life with every advantage possible.
