Kids and ChiropracticDid you know that the use of vacuum extraction devices or obstetric forceps during the delivery process will place 140lbs to 170lbs of dangerous pressure or force to the very delicate cervical spine (neck) of your baby? This birth trauma is one of the many reasons we provide care for so many children.
Even without the use of the afore mentioned birthing devices, your children will sustain painless spinal trauma on a daily basis. A fall off the monkey bars or bicycle will contribute to poor spinal and nervous system health. Student athletes benefit from chiropractic care as they take sport specific spinal trauma in practice and games. Performance improvements have been shown in the student athlete as a result of regular adjustments to maintain the integrity of their spine and nervous system. The typical student posture consists of slouching, forward head carriage, and rounded shoulders which absolutely contribute to poor health. And how heavy is that BACK pack, anyway?
Scoliosis, a very serious spinal and nervous system condition, is yet another common childhood spinal affliction that responds well to corrective chiropractic care. As do ear infections, colic, allergies and many other childhood issues.

It’s our distinct honor to make sure it does. That is why we adjust all spines from ten days to ten decades.
So please join us as we invite you and your family to become part of our wellness mission. We are looking forward to providing Chiropractic care for you and your loved ones.
