Young Musculoskeletal Systems Need Adjustment Too

People tend to think of chiropractic adjustment as something that becomes necessary only in adulthood, in response to an acute injury or following years of wear and tear. But the truth is that human beings face serious musculoskeletal challenges right from the first moments of life. Even the passage through the birth canal can create spinal alignment problems in newborn infants -- problems that have the potential to affect their growth and development for many years to come.

But that's just the beginning. Babies and toddlers take plenty of spills and bumps as they learn to crawl, walk, run and play, with any of those impacts possibly shifting vertebrae out of their proper alignment. The school years bring playground roughhousing, backpack usage and school sports into the equation. Last but not least, the spinal column can fall prey to scoliosis as the body nears puberty. Any of these issues would be reason enough to ask a chiropractor on our team to keep an eye on your child's spinal health.
