Kids and Chiropractic
The top 4 reasons why children are under chiropractic wellness care:
- To ensure that the child's brain-spinal cord-nerve pathway is clear with no interference.
- To ensure that the child's spine grows in proper alignment through every stage of growth and development.
- To remove trauma to the spine and neck caused by childbirth or other activities related to being an active child.
- To teach children that health comes from within and that the answer does not lie in a bottle of pills. This can significantly impact your child's concept of wellness-and his or her future health-related choices.
Do chiropractic adjustments hurt children?
No, absolutely not. Adjustments are tailored specific to a child's spine and are very gentle and enjoyable. Sometimes an instrument is used and sometimes it is hands-on, but rest assured, your child will not be harmed and the benefits are astronomical. In fact, it has been our experience that children fight to get on the table first.
