Chiropractic is a healing art that focuses on the alignment of the spinal vertebrae. This is important because once a bone in the spine becomes misaligned it can put pressure on the nerves exiting the spine at that level and cause a reduction in nerve flow. This is what leads to the symptoms that people have when they seek chiropractic care.
We all know adults benefit greatly from chiropractic but what about kids? The answer is a resounding YES! Kids benefit from chiropractic care. Most people don’t realize that the problems they have as adults often stem from unaddressed issues they had as children.
Think about it. When you were a kid how many times did you fall or injure yourself? Probably almost daily right? Kids bodies are affected by physical stress just like a grown ups and once a spinal bone becomes misaligned it causes the same problems in a kid as in a grownup.
Often times however these problems are not addressed and don’t actually result in symptoms bad enough to seek care until years later. I often suggest starting kids on chiropractic care to not only correct problems they may have an youngsters but also to prevent many of the common problems people have as adults including headaches, sciatica, mid back pain and more.
Get your kids adjusted. They will thank you for it now and years down the road!
