Chiropractic care has been used in the treatment of many common childhood ailments, such as colic, respiratory distress, fever, ADHD, and earaches. As they grow, children will often suffer injuries as a result of falling or playing sports. Regular checkups can identify problems and may help to avoid some of the health problems that are so common in adults. Chiropractic care can stabilize and reduce scoliosis, improve health, and correct poor posture in children.
Generally, it’s never too early to begin chiropractic on children. Although the adjusting techniques used on children are modified, the benefits are just as great. Since a degree of spinal trauma can happen during childbirth, when the spine and neck may be injured as the baby is pushed through the birth canal, we encourage parents to bring their newborns to be checked.
