One of the most common questions I get in the clinic, “Is chiropractic safe for my child?” The short answer is “yes,” and in fact, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that chiropractic care is introduced at a young age. This is because growth occurs at such a rapid rate for the first few years of a child’s life.
Many times, aches, pains, and other functional issues might arise. To help promote the proper growth of children and to prevent functional issues which might potentially arise, we remove the interference on the nerves and joints and promote proper mobility. A proper line of communication between the brain, spinal cord, and rest of the body is important for proper development and self-healing throughout these crucial years.
I have seen children as young as 7 WEEKS old and children who are in the middle of adolescence, both of which have seen significant benefit in both the short and long term. Simply put, there is no age limit on getting adjusted!
