Pediatrics and Chiropractic

Have you ever heard the saying “as the twig is bent, so grows the tree?” This implies that a tree’s structural integrity is only as good as it’s early life as a twig. This rings true with our health as well. It’s unfortunate that many sick children grow up to be sick adults. The good news is that healthy kids have a much better chance to grow up to be healthy adults. After all, many health complaints we see in adults began in childhood.

As children learn to walk, run, jump, climb, and play they inevitably end up with bumps and bruises that may misalign one or more of their spinal bones. These misalignments can irritate their nervous system and affect the way they develop. Research has shown chiropractic to be effective for children with asthma, bedwetting, allergies, diarrhea, constipation, and ear infections, among many other conditions.
