Chiropractic care for kids!
Pediatric chiropractic care is a growing field and one that many parents are investigating. As adults, we understand the stress our everyday lives can put on our bodies; however; many people have the misguided thought that children do not need the same attention that adults get when it comes to the care of their spine.
Even from birth, the sensitive structures in a child’s spine can be put under stress. Joints designed to move with ease become tight and lack mobility. In a child this spinal stress can manifest itself as irritability, a depressed immune system, excessive crying, headache, local discomfort and chronic infections to name a few. However; spinal stress can often go unnoticed until the child is an adolescent or adult at which time obvious pain and stiffness creeps in.
Chiropractic care of the pediatric patient is unlike that of the adult. Because the delicate spinal structure in a child differs from that of the adult, “adjustments” to the spine are more gentle and non forceful.
