arents report that many childhood health problems resolve with chiropractic care.

Parents report that many childhood health problems resolve with chiropractic care.

Why would a child have a spine and nervous system problem? Traumatic births. Learning to walk. Slips. Falls. The list is endless. Yet, because children have such an adaptive capacity, these problems are often brushed off as ‘growing pains’ or just a ‘phase they’re going through’ but “As the twig is bent, so grows the tree.”

Some evidence suggests that chiropractic care may be helpful for colic, ear infections, erratic sleeping habits, bedwetting, scoliosis, growing pains and many other common childhood health complaints.
The concern that many parents have is that chiropractic adjustments will be too forceful. They mistakenly think that their child will receive adjustments like ones they receive. Not only are adjusting techniques modified for each person’s size and unique spinal problem, an infant’s spine rarely has the long-standing muscle tightness seen in adults. This makes a child’s chiropractic adjustments gentle.
