Many parents ask the question, is chiropractic safe for children? YES!
As a matter of fact chiropractic care is extremely important for infants and children. Many spinal problems in adults can be traced back as far as birth.
Birth and other spinal trauma can stress the child’s spine and nervous system leading to colic, sleep disturbance, allergies, and chronic infections.
During the first few years of life, the spine begins developing its curves which are vital to its overall strength. Also during this time, the nervous system and spinal cord are growing rapidly. If trauma occurs during this time of rapid growth, it can cause long term effects. Seeking regular chiropractic care can realign the spine allowing the nervous system to grow and function properly. For these reasons it is important to have your children checked as soon as possible.
Children’s Chiropractic Safety Research
-The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association conducted a study on the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic care. The results were outstanding! Not only did the study show that chiropractic care is safe for children, but parents reported unexpected improvements with their child’s care: improved sleep, immune function, behavior and attitude.
