Chiropractic for Kids
Children go through many changes from infancy to 18 years old. When they are infants their bones and joints are growing and developing. When they first start to crawl, the gravity on their neck and lower back is what creates the arches in your neck and lower back that remain in adulthood. This time period will somewhat determine their spinal health for years to come. We recommend children get checked out at milestones such as being able to pick up their head, starting to crawl, starting to walk, or if they are extra fussy, having trouble nursing on one side. Beyond those milestones we recommend a few adjustments a year. Kids fall down, run into things, fall out of trees all the time. You as an adult sleep wrong and your neck hurts, so imagine falling off of your bike. The techniques we use can be altered and modified a number of ways, and the amount of force we use is much less on kids. Please voice any questions or concerns and we will be happy to answer your questions to put your mind at ease.
