When you want to give your child a head start in good health and all the benefits of a conservative, drugless approach to health care, you should take your child to a chiropractor. It is important to have a chiropractic exam during the first year of a child’s life as spinal trauma can occur during birth, as well as from tumbles while learning to sit up or walk. Improper lifting and carrying can also contribute to spinal stress.

Your child’s spine grows almost 50% in length during the first year. This can be compared to a six-footer growing to nine feet tall in just 12 months! These tremendous growth and developmental changes make a complete chiropractic examination absolutely vital in the early stages of a child’s life. The earlier that problems are corrected, the less likelihood there is of it becoming a chronic or more serious problem in later life.

Doctors of chiropractic believe that it is far more important to prevent health problems rather than waiting for them to happen!
