Children & Chiropractic

Are chiropractic adjustments safe for children?
Absolutely. Because a child’s skeletal system is still developing, there is a great deal of elasticity within the joints. Light pressure is usually all that is needed to adjust a child’s spine. So the next time you come to our office, bring your children. The few minutes you invest in your child’s spinal check-up will save them needless suffering, now and in the future.
Fortunately, chiropractic has had many positive results in treating some very common childhood issues. Problems like colic, headaches, ear infections, scoliosis, asthma, and even some cases of behavioral problems and bed-wetting have been successfully treated with chiropractic care. In fact, a recent study showed that children under chiropractic care suffered from fewer ear infections than those whose parents sought medicinal care alone.
