Chiropractic and Kids
More and more parents are seeking chiropractic care for their children. Many spinal problems seen in adults began as early as birth. Even so called "natural" birthing methods can bring stress to the infant's spine and developing nerve system. The resulting irritation to the nerve system caused by spinal and cranial misalignment can be the cause of many newborn health complaints. It is important to note that spinal misalignments may or may not result in immediate pain or symptoms. Regular chiropractic checkups can identify potential spinal problems.
Since significant spinal trauma can occur at birth, many parents have their newborns checked right away. As the infant grows, learning to hold up the head, sit, crawl and walk are all activities that affect spinal alignment and are important times to have a child checked by a Doctor of Chiropractic. Drs. David and Melody are experts in checking the infant and child-sized spine. Chiropractic adjusting procedures are modified to fit a child's size, weight, and unique spinal condition. They are gentle, safe and specific to the child's developing spinal structures. Most parents report that their children enjoy their chiropractic adjustments and look forward to subsequent visits. They also report that their children experience a greater level of health while under regular chiropractic care.
Make the correction early in life and help avoid many of the health complaints seen later in childhood and adulthood. Proper spinal hygiene is an important key to better health.
