How can chiropractic care help an older child who is not sick?

Chiropractors help to correct spinal misalignments that can cause health problems; they do not treat diseases. As we all know, youngsters take numerous tumbles while growing up. Accidents may occur that can cause misalignment of the spine from everyday childhood activities such as learning to ride a bike or simply jumping and running around. Injuries from athletic activities are common in children as well. A twist in a young spine from the sacking of a quarterback or pitching a ball can throw a vertebra out of alignment. If left uncorrected, serious problems could arise as the child grows into adulthood.

Doctors of Chiropractic not only correct these problems but can also help improve performance on and off the field by assisting the body to function at its optimum level. By treating young patients naturally and without drugs, including regular adjustments, counseling on exercise, posture, and proper nutrition, the chiropractor can help ensure that your child grows up both structurally and functionally sound.
