Why would my child need chiropractic care?
This is a question that we hear quite often and we fully understand why it comes up. What we find is that most people think that a chiropractic adjustment for kids uses the same technique and force that an adjustment for an adult would. In fact they are completely different given the differences in size. We use a much lighter technique and rountinely work with infants that are less than 1 month old.
Children have stresses put on their nervous systems just like adults do, they just happen to be different stresses. Everything from the birth process to learning to walk and being colicky, kids must be checked for subluxations to ensure health and normal development.
