By now, you may have experienced first hand the benefits of chiropractic care to your health. What about your children? Have you ever considered bringing them in for a chiropractic checkup?

Chiropractic care for kids

Did you know that the first stress placed on a child’s spinal column is during childbirth? According to research, 26% of children surveyed at school reported a history of back pain. A kid’s spine is always subjected to repeated forces in the learning process of walking, postural strains, and other childhood injuries. A lot of adults going to a chiropractor’s office show evidence of childhood injuries being a contributing factor for their pain today. This shows the importance of regular checkups on your child’s spine for any symptoms of spinal misalignments.

In addition, chiropractic has had a lot of good results in the treatment of common childhood maladies. With chiropractic care, problems such as headaches, colic, ear infections, scoliosis, asthma, and some cases of behavioral problems have been successfully treated. A recent study showed that children under chiropractic care had less ear infections that those who sought medical care alone.

Are chiropractic adjustments safe for children?

Absolutely! Because a child’s skeletal system is still in development, their joints become elastic. To adjust the spine, all that is needed is light pressure. So the next time you visit our office, bring your children. The few minutes you invest in your child’s checkup may save them from pain in the future.
