Kids First

We often hear from parents that they appreciate the importance of regular check-ups for their child’s teeth, eyes and ears, but they draw a blank when it comes to a spinal check-ups. Yet that could be one of the most important check-ups your child will ever have.

Far too often the problems we see in adults are chronic and actually began in their childhood.  For example, the “growing pains” of a 12-year-old boy can become crippling low back and leg pains in adulthood: the “jolly jumpers” used by a toddler can cause spinal curvatures (scoliosis) in the adolescent. Your child’s spine is his or her lifeline.  It has two functions; the first being posture and the second to protect the spinal cord.

We recommend that ALL children be checked by a Corrective Care Chiropractor.  The reality is chiropractic has nothing to do with neck pain or back pain and has everything to do with your child’s overall development.  Children who are active (especially athletes) and children with poor posture are beating up their bodies.  As these kids continue to grow and develop into young adults, the poor posture becomes their new normal and will impact them for the rest of their lives.  This is why you see people age differently…some so poorly they have a low quality of life.  The good news is that kids respond to Corrective Care Chiropractic phenomenally and achieve results much quicker than adults who are suffering with chronic problems!
