My children are too young for a backache, do they really need chiropractic care? This question has been hot topic in the media this year and the answer is yes, absolutely! Receiving chiropractic care is about much more than back aches. Studies have shown that regular pediatric chiropractic care can bolster children’s immune systems, improve sleep quality, even improve behavior and attitude.
Just because our children don’t complain of back pain doesn’t mean that their isn’t strain on their nervous system. In fact, most people’s first subluxations, or spinal misalignments, occur as early as birth. Further subluxations can occur with any subsequent falls and injuries when learning how to pick their heads up, learning how to walk, or playing sports, for example. All of life’s little boo-boos can interfere with nervous system function which can affect our children’s general health and happiness. Regular chiropractic adjustments help resolve these interferences and allow our children a greater state of well being and every chance to be their joyful selves.
