Chiropractic Care & Children
Whether they are learning to crawl, running around the playground, giving you preteen attitude, or heading off to college, a child’s spinal column enables them to bend, twist, and jump around, all day long. Made up of 24 independent vertebrae, the spinal column also helps to protect their central nerve system, which controls their body’s ability to repair and function, as well as grow, by signaling each and every organ, cell, and tissue within.
When two or more vertebrae are restricted, ultimately making it difficult for the body to send signals out, this is referred to as joint dysfunctions – or subluxations – and this can occur from simple daily activities that your child participates in, as they grow. In fact, joint dysfunction in a child can be caused by everyday activities throughout their development cycle. From falls taken while skipping to grabbing that heavy grocery bag from the car (to help mom), learning to walk, and even staring at mindless dribble on their tablets; these are all fine examples of what your child can do to cause a subluxation.
Often pediatric physicians and parents alike turn to chiropractic care as an all-natural and medicine-free way to effectively help with their child’s health and wellness.
