Children and Chiropractic

Why do children visit a Chiropractor?

Here is why:


Newborns should be examined soon after birth, to remove the spinal nerve stress that frequently occurs, and spinal check-ups should continue as an infant develops.  Sitting, crawling and first steps are all milestones that should be accompanied by a pediatric chiropractic examination.

As a child grows, physical activities become more intense and the likelihood of spinal misalignments increases.  Regular chiropractic check-ups, and gentle spinal adjustments if necessary, allow the nervous system to grow unimpeded.  Chiropractic adjusting procedures are modified to fit a child’s size, weight and spinal condition.
