Kids and Chiropractic
Why do Kids Need Chiropractic Care?
From birth, babies fight an uphill battle. Traditional medical birthing procedures put harsh stress on the spine, especially the bones of the neck during labor. The result can be irritation to the nervous system and may cause many newborn health complaints. Unexplained crying or colic, poor appetite or feeding problems, poor sleep patterns, breathing problems and allergic reactions can often be traced to nervous system dysfunction caused by a malfunctioning spine.
It is also important to understand that an infant’s spine grows almost 50% in length in the first year. As babies grow, childhood activities can jar the spine and cause Vertebral Subluxations. Kids need chiropractic care during this time of rapid growth to correct spinal problems before they “grow into” larger ones or more significant health problems. Many adulthood heath problems were present during childhood. Early detection and prevention is the key and can be accomplished by having your children’s spine checked by a Chiropractor as soon as possible.
