Today’s question: “Why do my children need chiropractic care?”
This question comes up pretty often. It seems a lot of people are unaware that children also benefit from chiropractic the same way adults do.
The birth process is often the cause of your child’s first subluxation (problem area/misalignment). A soft and undeveloped spine of an infant can suffer trauma during delivery. It is estimated that as much as 80lbs of pulling pressure can be exerted to remove a baby from the birth canal.
As children grow up and become more curious, the number of injuries to their spines become countless. The repeated falls as children learn to walk, the running, jumping, twisting, bumping and falling all over the place while playing in the yard will often cause children to become subluxated. Often children do not show any signs or symptoms of being subluxated until later on in life. Chiropractic care offers your child a more responsive body, a more balanced flow of energy and overall increased performance as she/he passes through their windows of development. This also minimizes the risk of future health challenges.
We encourage parents of children all ages to consider chiropractic. Why wait and treat later what can be prevented today!?
