From when your child is born, their body undergoes an immense amount of growth over the first four years. As their muscles stretch and their bones grow, making sure they are in alignment can help with their development and overall health. Getting your child chiropractic treatments early on in life can help them reduce any physical pain and discomfort they may feel during growth spurts.
Since a child’s spine experiences the highest rate of expansion during the first 10 years of life, simple events like wearing a heavy backpack, having poor posture, even suffering injuries during sports can take a toll on how their spine develops. When the spine is misaligned, this impacts the nervous system and can result in a host of illnesses and conditions such as colic, asthma, ear infections, bedwetting, even a weak immune or digestive system.
Taking your child, even as an infant, to receive all natural and non-invasive chiropractic treatments can be an effective way to keep their spine healthy during these critical development years.
Do pregnancy and pediatrics chiropractors need specialized training?
