Chiropractor For Kids
Our chiropractor for kids can help your child with their spinal health. During the developing years, spinal problems have a way of happening from a variety of reasons. These commonly include such things as falling over when learning to walk, mishaps while at play, falling off a bike, technology use and poor posture.
It’s important for a parent to know that spinal issues left untreated can cause further issues down the track. Kids generally recover relatively quickly.
An example of this is scoliosis, an abnormal curvature of the spine. It can develop quickly during the periods of rapid growth. However, in many cases, early detection and treatment of spinal issues may help to ease the pain.
Why does a child need Chiropractic care?
Children are prone to trauma in their spines due to many different activities. These events can affect the vertebrae of the spine, irritating their spinal nerves therefore reducing mobility and function. Symptoms like pain appear early, but degenerative changes due to trauma can take years to show up, causing a lifetime of damaging effects.
When to visit our Chiropractor
Children can be checked at any point from after birth, through the toddler years, and then right through to their teens. So whether it is trauma due to the birth process, falls when learning how to walk, or injuries playing sport, our chiropractor for children can help your child with their health.
