Chiropractic For Children

Why would a child have a spine and nervous system problem? The list is endless – slips, falls, traumatic births, learning to walk, etc.  Yet, because children have such an adaptive capacity, these problems are often brushed off as “growing pains” or just a “phase they’re going through.”

“As the twig is bent, so grows the tree.”

Many research projects show chiropractic care being helpful for common childhood health complaints. The concern that many parents have is that chiropractic treatment will be too forceful. They mistakenly think that their child will receive treatment like they receive. Not only are adjusting techniques modified for each person’s size and unique spinal problem, a child’s spine rarely has the long-standing muscle tightness seen in adults. This makes a child’s chiropractic adjustments gentle, comfortable and effective.
