Children's Adjustments

Children's Adjustments

Children should get adjusted just like adults. Much of the pain and discomfort experienced later in life is due to something that happened in our youth. Young people are highly active and experience impacts on their spine just like everyone else. Children tend to be more resilient than older people, but they should be checked by a chiropractor to make sure that small accidents, like falling off a bike, or daily habits, such as poor posture and sleeping habits, don't lead to problems down the road (like subluxation). Getting adjusted as a child can also support proper growth and development. And don't worry, adjustments on a child are done more gently than adult adjustments.
