More parents are seeking chiropractic care for their children because research shows many health challenges seen in adults began as early spinal problems from birth. One of the most common reasons parents seek care for their child is some form of trauma. Trauma can result from anything as small as learning to walk and crawl, falls on the playground, or even the birth process itself. These traumas create subluxations that can result in immediate pain and visual symptoms or even hidden symptoms that can lead to more significant health challenges down the road. Chiropractic adjustments detect spinal injury from these traumas, and early detection and correction can help avoid many of the health complaints we see children develop in the future. Pediatric adjustments are gentle and safe and can help prevent future health challenges. Proper spinal alignment and nervous system function is vital to maintaining your child’s health!
