Why should kids visit a chiropractor?
How Chiropractic Helps Kids
From learning to walk, run, ride a bike and play sports, kids fall hundreds, if not thousands, of times. More often than not, when we have trauma as a child, we are told to shake it off and get back in the game.
What people don't realize, is that many problems that we experience as adults stem from injuries that we had as children. If these problems get detected and corrected early on, they are much easier and quicker to fix.
Children also experience micro trauma every day from spending hours sitting at desks in school, slouching while playing video games, and watching television.
Being sedentary and sitting with poor posture causes structural and neurological stress to the body.
If neglected, these issues continue to worsen and can cause serious challenges when we become adults. The best time to start chiropractic care is now, before the problems occur.

These prescription drugs have never been tested on children, and have negative side effects that can be worse than the condition itself.
Unfortunately, parents are not sure of the alternatives and even where to go to get help.
Many of the parents who come into our practice have noticed improvements in the following areas:
Every child deserves the opportunity to grow up drug-free, and live to their true potential.
