Chiropractic has been shown to be helpful with scoliosis and many other so-called “normal” childhood health problems. Since significant spinal trauma can occur at birth, many parents have their newborns checked for Vertebral Subluxation Complex. Later, childhood activities such as learning to walk and ride a bicycle can cause spinal problems. While a bandage and some comforting words can help a skinned knee, the unseen damage to a child’s spine is the unique domain of a chiropractic doctor.
Many childhood health complaints brushed off as “growing pains” can often be traced to the spine. Regular chiropractic checkups can identify these problems and help avoid many of the health complaints often seen later in adults. Naturally, chiropractic adjustments are modified to a child’s spine. Most parents report that their children enjoy their chiropractic adjustments and seem healthier than other children.
