Many people wonder why kids should be checked by a chiropractor. Admittedly, their lives are not like adults, but they should be checked for different reasons.
For starters, the birth process may have been hard on their little bodies, not to discount mom’s experience. Then, it is all the falls and bumps associated with learning to crawl and walk. This is followed by spending time in desks for approximately thirteen years, without the benefit of an ergonomic assessment. Don’t forget about sports injuries either, or heavy backpacks or horsing around with their friends.
There is also the obvious benefit of having someone uniquely qualified to assess your child’s spine for a scoliosis screening. (Scoliosis refers to a curve in the spine that should not be there.)
The lovely thing about seeing kids is how quickly they respond to care. If you have spent a sleepless night with a sick child, only to have them bright-eyed the next morning, while you are struggling, you know how fast they can get better.
