A child encounters many physical stresses during their growing years. The resulting problems in children’s spines can occur at almost any point in their development and growth. The birth process is one of the most traumatic events of our lives, and the resulting irritation to the nervous system can be the cause of a number of health problems with new-borns. Many developmental milestones such as learning to hold up the head, sitting upright, crawling, and walking are all activities that are affected by spinal alignment, hence the benefit of having your child checked by a chiropractor. Additionally, falls, sports injuries, playground bumps, heavy school bags and sitting all day in the classroom are all physical stresses to the growing child’s spine and nervous system. We are able to adjust our chiropractic techniques to fit a child's size and unique spinal problem. It is important to make sure your child's spine is correct during these years, as if left unresolved the issue will only get worse and cause problems later in life.
