Care For Children
people ask whether it is appropriate for children to receive chiropractic
care. Not only is it appropriate, it is necessary for the proper development
of a child's spine. Given the tremendous amounts of falls and mishaps
children experience as they grow, there is a great probability of
minor injuries occurring. We call them minor injuries, because in
most cases, children get the type of injuries that are not causing
them significant pain at the time of injury. However, these minor
injuries, if left untreated can accumulate over the years until such
time that a more significant health issue is evident. Dorland's Medical
dictionary describes health in part as not just the absence of pain,
but a state of wellness.
chiropractic adjustments of a child's spine will aid in keeping the
spine mobile and in its best possible functional position. This, along
with the proper additional support from the child's pediatrician allows
for a team approach to healthcare. This is an approach that works
well for the child because various different health philosophies and
treatment are used for the child's best health interest.
analogy that seems appropriate at this point of our discussion: It
is better to prevent a sapling from growing bent, than to attempt
to straighten out an old tree.
today's world, with the health advances in all professions, it is
not necessary for our children to suffer with the same difficulties
of past generations.
