Children & Chiropractics
As children grow, they learn to sit upright, crawl, walk, and then later run, jump, climb and play. All of these activities can be improved with smoother, unimpeded movement facilitated by a healthy spine. Some of these activities can lead to falls that can cause vertebral subluxations. In addition, children have immature immune systems, causing more frequent illnesses, but it is not normal for your child to experience frequent colds and ear infections. One way to boost their immune system is to remove interference to the nervous system. Many experts believe that uncorrected spinal problems during development and growth can lead to chronic, difficult-to-correct subluxations seen later in life.
