Chiropractic is definitely safe for kiddos!!! We see people in our office from newborns to the elderly. It is always such an honor to have a parent entrust the health of a child's nervous system to us.
Chiropractic has a huge amount of benefits beyond just pain relief. There have been many success stories regarding children with colic, ear infections, and trouble with breast feeding. Many peoples first ‘trauma’ to their spine, is the process of being born. At this time a tremendous amount of force is being applied to the newborns body. Most people assume that a child is adjusted in the same manner as an adult would be. This is not the case. The force needed to adjust an infant’s spine is the pressure needed to determine if a tomato is ripe. A clear and functioning nervous system has vast benefits to a child and their well-being. We've compiled a list of 10 reasons parents choose to take their children to see a chiropractor.
