I want to ensure my young child's proper growth and development, is chiropractic right for him?
The growing spine houses a growing child's nervous system. Imagine a trauma (birth, childhood falls /accidents) or bad posture can cause compensation patterns which have a long-lasting effect on the whole body.
Chiropractic supports the growing spine by ensuring proper alignment and joint functions. Children's bodies are highly adaptive and treatment effects can be much more pronounced than adults. It is also important to instill the concept of spinal care from a young age much like the concept of dental hygiene. Regular spinal check-ups are recommended once every 6 months throughout childhood, and especially during puberty to look out for development of scoliosis.
