Chiropractic Care For Infants, Children and Teens
You’ll probably never see your five year old bend over to pick up a toy and freeze in pain saying “oh, my back went out again” Spinal degenerations and vertebral subluxations that cause that kind of pain will generally not appear in children – but it started there.
There are three windows of time in which your child’s spine will go through major stages of development. The first of these is birth through age five. From birth trauma to repetitive injuries this stressing the spine. The second window of development is five to ten years of age. From organized sports to school and playgrounds, various body systems are strained. Finally teenage years. From improper backpack loading and carrying, poor posture, and puberty.
