Most parents don’t blink an eye when it comes to routine visits to the dentist for check-ups. So why not the chiropractor? But his/her back doesn’t hurt! Why should I take them to a chiropractor?
Well, just like the dentist a spinal check-up performed by a chiropractor could prove to be valuable in the health of your child.
Traditionally, chiropractors have been identified with back pain and adults. The role of children and chiropractic has been lesser understood. However, the spine, which houses the nervous system, functions to control the entire body. Sometimes messages travelling throughout the nervous system via the brain, the spinal cord, the body and back again can be impaired. The condition by which spinal vertebrae that are not functioning as well as they should and causing nervous system interference is termed a subluxation. This is most certainly a condition that chiropractors are good at resolving.
Doctors of chiropractic modify their techniques and methods to suit children of all ages.
