Benefits, Child's First Adjustment, A Wellness Lifestyle

Many times people will first see a chiropractor as an adult for some type of problem. Sometimes degenerative changes are found. The original damage may have occurred many years ago. Therefore spinal check ups for youngsters may prevent future serious problems and improve overall function.

An adjustment for a child is quite simple and gentle. ( about the pressure for checking if a tomato is ripe) The concept is the above down inside out concept.

Children Chiropractic/ Part 3 

Your Child's Developing Spine

There are three windows of time in which your child's spine will go through.

The first stage is birth through age 5. This is definitely the most critical
time, since it is the period that the child has many minor and repetitive injuries.

The second window of development is from 5-10 years of age. During this time, your child will begin school and spend time climbing on monkey bars, sliding down slides, playing sports and generally take many tumbles and falls.

Finally, from age 10-15, your child's spine will go through its last stage of development. Some of the effects during this period include improper backpack loading and carrying, poor posture, an inactive or sedentary lifestyle, repetitive
sports movements and general sports injuries.

Even if you missed one or more windows of care, it is still possible to get benefits
whenever you start.
