Why take Kids to a Chiropractor?

Many spinal problems seen in adults begin in childhood. Proper spinal care beginning with birth is an important key to better health. The birth process can be one of the most traumatic events in our lives. Even so-called “natural” birthing methods can stress the newborn spine that is still developing. Irritation to the nervous system at birth can lead to common newborn complaints like colic, unexplained crying, poor appetite, breathing problems, etc. Developmental landmarks such as lifting the head, crawling, and walking are all important times that a child’s spine should be checked. If neglected then problems developing early on can lead to bigger problems later on in life. Regular chiropractic adjustments keeps a kids spine in good alignment and keeps their nervous system functioning optimally.

Pregnancy and Chiropractic

During pregnancy, the center of gravity changes and so does the stress on the spine. In addition to hormonal changes, laxity of connectivity ligaments develops and shifting of weight-bearing structures occurs. These changes can cause pain in all areas of the spine, especially the lower back. Besides helping relieve discomfort, chiropractic care helps a pregnant woman by ensuring that her nervous system is functioning to full capacity.
