Adjustments for Children and Infants

Have you counted the number of times your child has fallen in the last week, the last month, and the last year? How many times have they been sick this year? Have they started a sport? Skating? Soccer? Gymnastics?  Have you felt the weight of their backpack lately? Children’s developing spines and nervous systems are under tremendous amount of stress each and every day, just like an adult spine.

Chiropractic care works to enhance your child’s nervous system by removing interference that can affect how their body functions. In doing so, chiropractic care can be beneficial for many childhood conditions. Headaches, colic, ear infections, ADD, bed wetting, constipation, poor sleeping habits, and growing pains can be all be outward signs of a child’s nervous system under stress. Have you had your child’s spine checked by a chiropractor?
