Trauma and stress to the body and spine can start as early as childbirth. Difficult deliveries or cesarean sections could easily cause misalignments for infants. The only way infants communicate is by crying, so oftentimes pain can be overlooked since children cry for just about anything. One of the common symptoms in which we see infants here at Rise is Colic. The chiropractic adjustments have shown to be one of the most effective standard treatments for colic baby.
As children begin to crawl and walk, they become more vulnerable to injuries and falls that may not seem too harmful but could eventually turn into misalignment. One of the biggest causes of poor posture is backpacks that children carry. If you have a chance to prevent your child from some of the symptoms you now have in the adult life, why not make use of that opportunity? It is more beneficial to have children get adjusted at their age so that aches and pains seen in adults can be prevented.
Being proactive about your child’s overall health and wellbeing will limit and support them through colds and infections and allow them to meet their optimal potential!
