Why would a child have a spine or nervous system problem? Traumatic births. Learning to walk. Slips. Falls. The list is endless. Yet, because children have such an adaptive capacity, these problems are often brushed off as “growing pains” or just a “phase they’re going through.”
The concern that many parents have is that chiropractic adjustments will be too forceful. They mistakenly think that their child will receive adjustments that twist or “crack” the neck or spine. Knowing exactly where to adjust, newborns and infants are adjusted with no more pressure than you’d use to test the ripeness of a tomato. This makes a child’s chiropractic adjustments gentle, comfortable and effective. Many parents have commented that they see almost instant improvements in the well-being of their child.
