Don’t forget… your children need chiropractic too!
During the early formative years, spinal problems have a way of happening from a variety of reasons. These commonly include such things as mishaps while at play as well as poor postural habits.
But it’s important for a parent to know that any spinal condition left untreated may eventually degenerate, causing more serious problems later in life.
Happily, if discovered early enough, a child’s spinal condition recovers relatively quickly and completely.
An example of this is scoliosis, an abnormal curvature of the spine. It can develop quickly during the periods of rapid growth. However, in many cases, early detection and treatment can correct the problem.
So, just as it is important to have your children’s teeth checked, it is also important to have their spines regularly checked for healthy development.
Why Do Children Need Chiropractic Care?
Learning to walk, ride a bicycle. and other childhood activities can cause serious spinal problems. While a bandage and some comforting words can help a skinned knee, the unseen damage to the child’s spine is the unique domain of a chiropractic doctor.
Many childhood health complaints that are brushed off as “growing pains” can often be traced to the spine. Regular chiropractic checkups can identify these problems and help avoid many of the health complaints seen later in adults.
Naturally. chiropractic adjusting procedures are modified to a child’s spine. Most parents report that their children enjoy their chiropractic adjustments and seem healthier than other children.
