Chiropractic and Kids
Unlocking the nervous system opens up new opportunities for you and your child to enjoy your bodies’ function, perception and adaptation. How old do you have to be to see a chiropractor? Many parents who are being seen at our office ask us this question and we have a very simple answer, there is no age requirement! Full body wellness through chiropractic adjustments should and is available to any person, even newborns. Taking your child to the chiropractor is the natural way to help your child grow in the healthiest way possible. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, parents who look for alternative forms of wellness for their children choose Chiropractic care the most often. The immune boosting quality that the adjustment offers can be an alternative form of healing from things like: the common cold. Chiropractic care boosts the immune system and helps with anxiety, stress, back and neck pain, and other musculoskeletal problems.
Parents choose alternative therapies for their children because of word of mouth, fear of drug side effects, chronic medical problems, and, to a certain extent, dissatisfaction with conventional medicine.
