Did you know that chiropractic care is beneficial for babies and children? While many parents seek chiropractic care for their children after an accident, it can be quite advantageous as a preventative measure. The bodies of children and infants are constantly changing, growing, and moving. As a result, their bodies have a high probability of developing spinal alignment issues that can affect their overall well-being.
From the birth process itself to learning to sit, crawl, and walk, the spine can easily lose its proper alignment. For example, the trauma of birth can cause nursing difficulties, colic, and sleep disturbances. As children grow, their activities such as bike riding, running, and playing sports can have an effect on their spine.
