It seems children never run out of energy, they go all day long running, jumping, and playing hard. Sometimes all this physical activity puts stress on the spinal nerves; this may lead to lowering a child’s resistance to disease and open the door for many illnesses.
The slightest misalignment can cause a child to suffer from adult type problems, such as headaches, back pain, poor concentration, irritability, etc. and for many, a simple, painless spinal exam will allow your Chiropractor to find, and treat if necessary any misalignments.
Chiropractic Care for children is a very important step to make sure your child is growing up to their peak potential. A minor subluxation/nerve interference left unchecked can turn into substantial problems down the line. Sometimes the subluxation has been around since birth (the birthing process can be extremely traumatic). Dr. Hyack recommends that your entire family have their spine and nervous system examined. The good news is that, in comparison to adults, most children need very little chiropractic care to get them back on target.
