INFANTS & CHILDREN
Children have spines just like adults. They can just as easily get injured during sports, recreational activities, or just in day-to-day life. In fact, the very first subluxation that most children experience is during the birth process. These subluxations can lead to a variety of childhood ailments. Addressing these problems early on can prevent bigger issues from arising and help your child live an active, healthy life.
Chiropractors have been adjusting children’s spines for over 100 years, and with an excellent track record.
