I know there is so much controversy between chiropractic and medical care, but if it were not for chiropractic I would still be in pain. A car accident left me with constant lower back pain. I tried everything from painkillers to preparing to have surgery. I heard stories from my friends who had surgery and to this day wish they never had it. So I decided to go to a chiropractor before the surgery and I am so thankful that I did. My back pains are gone and I am living my life to the fullest and pain free.

Children also benefit from regular spinal exams!

Why do kids need Chiropractic?

Spinal trauma may occur as early as birth. Pulling, twisting, or interventions such as vacuum extractions, forceps delivery or c-sections can all impact the newborns spine and nervous system. The good news is that children can be checked for interference to their nervous system (called "Vertebral Subluxation Complex" or "VSC") as early as moments after birth.

Children experience contant physical changes as they grow while learning to roll over, sit, stand, crawl, walk, ride a bicycle, swing from the monkey bars, etc. Sometimes all this activity can cause stress, pressure, or irritation to the nervous system that may lower the child's resistance to illness or set them up for future health issues as an adult. If detected during a spinal checkup, this can be easily corrected by a chiropractic adjustment. Children generally have a quick and favorable response to chiropractic care. Spinal checkups will help your children's bodies function at their highest potential.

Chiropractic care for children is much more than just spinal exams. Your chiropractor can also address important nutritional needs, offer correct exercise programs, and help to prepare your child for a healthy adulthood.

Is Chiropractic Safe for children?

This is a valid and common concern among parents who mistakenly believe that their child will receive adjustments like the ones they receive. Adjusting techniques are modified for each person's size and spinal condition. Infants' and childrens' spines rarely have the longstanding muscle tension seen in adults. This makes childrens' chiropractic adjustments gentle, comfortable and effective.
