What is Pediatric Chiropractic Care?

A child’s body undergoes a lot of trauma from the moment they are born. Children find their way and learn how to move and are frequently in a state of play and discovery.

Children experience not only physical but emotional stress in their daily lives.

Chiropractic care works well for children because their bodies are still growing. The alignment of the spine is essential for proper development. Chiropractors can alleviate tense muscles that lead to a misaligned spine or subluxation. (link to our blog post on this)

This condition leads to other health conditions and physical issues. These include ear infections, headaches, asthma, posture problems, and more.
