A healthy child may partake in sports, dance, running, and other forms of exercise. This regular activity, although great for the body, can cause minor injury to the spine, mostly masked by the resilience of youth. But, over time, these slight changes in the spine can lead to pain and posture issues.
Chiropractic car in children can be a form of preventative medicine can help ensure their physical state remains optimal far beyond their youth.
When Injuries Occur
Chiropractic care can also treat children and teens who have been involved in falls or motor vehicle accidents. Whiplash and other strains on the neck and back may be shaken off or ignored in children due to their youthful physical state but these jarring injuries, if left untreated, could lead to more serious problems later in life.
