Including Scoliosis, Migraines and Overall Wellness
Some people are surprised to see many children receiving chiropractic care. The typical question is, “how can a two-year-old have a backache?” Getting children checked for vertebral Subluxations has nothing to do with back pain. Children need chiropractic care like anyone else because little spines are also subjected to physical stress and trauma. Think about the birth process. This is probably the most traumatic experience in most people’s lifetime. It is very common to detect subluxations in the upper neck that can be associated with many health problems that can be seen immediately or arise in the future.
We recommend having your child checked early and regularly. This is especially important during growth periods for early detection of scoliosis or other spinal curvatures.
The Treatment You Get
The chiropractic adjustment is a very specific maneuver designed to correct the position and movement of a vertebrae. Depending on the age of the child, adjustments are modified to accommodate their spine. Research has shown adjustments to be very effective in cases of infant colic, chronic ear infection, asthma, allergies and of course scoliosis. Remember, chiropractic adjustments don’t treat the condition, but correct spinal balance that alleviates nerve irritation to the affected organs and glands.
