Right when you walk into our office one of the first things new patients notice in the kids play area is that we have one wall labeled "All-Star Chiro Kids" with their pictures on it. Most people are surprised to see that we take care of so many children, and usually ask "why do kids need chiropractic care"?
The top three reasons parents bring their kids in to get checked by a chiropractor are:
1. Ear Infections
3. Digestive issues
When we have parents under care we always encourage them to have their kids get checked for subluxations. Kids have a spine and nervous system too, and why wouldn't you want it functioning at 100%? Kids also usually respond very quickly to chiropractic care, quicker than adults, because they don't have the years of build up of traumas, accidents, and poor spinal health.
Often times one of the most truamatic things we go through in life is birth, which is often forgotten about because we don't remember it. So it is best to get your child checked after birth, so that there are no problems later on down the road.
