I am often asked should I get my child checked by a chiropractor. My answer is a resounding yes!!
We all have spines and they can all become misaligned or locked up. It may start from the birthing process which can be one of the most traumatic events in a human beings life. Especially if forceps are used which can be damaging to the new borns spine.
Between the age of 1 and 2 the childs spine will have suffered between 1500 and 200 knocks and falls. It only takes one impact or a repetitive impact to start spinal subluxations.
As the child is growing up look at all the bumps and falls that happen, sporting injuries, poor posture from being on the computer or slouching in front of the TV, carrying that massive school bag and so on.
Parents generally don’t think twice when visiting the Dentist to keep their teeth healthy, so what about keeping their spine and nervous system healthy.
Poor posture and spinal misalignments (Curvature of the spine) often runs in families.
