Chiropractic care is an essential part of your child’s overall wellness. The nervous system controls everything in the body, including growth and development. When we have interference in the spine, this can cause dysfunctional communication from the brain to the body. This can interfere with a child's capacity to thrive and cause decreased function throughout their rapidly growing body.
Infants, children and adults can all experience subluxations in the spine. Infants and children can become subluxated from birth trauma, other minor or major traumas and developmental stress. During the first five years of life, the body produces more neural pathways than at any other time. It is vital this production is optimized through children’s chiropractic care, as the first few years are crucial to each child’s potential.
Even if your child is in excellent health, minor traumas from bumps, bruises, falls and spills accumulate over time and can result in pain, discomfort and health issues in their teen and adult years. Chiropractic care for infants and children is very safe, effective and beneficial for their overall health and well-being. Chiropractic care is modified to fit a child’s size, weight, and unique conditions. Chiropractic adjustments are gentle and specific to the child’s developing spinal structures and nervous system. Many parents report that their children enjoy their chiropractic adjustments and look forward to subsequent visits. They also report that their children experience a greater level of health while under regular chiropractic care.
