Chiropractic Care for Kids
How do Little People Get Spinal Problems?
From their Parents
It’s sad but true. Your own posture is mimicked by your children to a point that they can develop the same bad spines; forward head postures, the same dropped shoulders and the same twisted pelvis. Even people who do like-minded activities will develop the same posture patterns. To copy is what we do best as humans, it is how our children learn and in the case of spinal misalignments (vertebral subluxation), it is how they can grow.
During Daily Life
Spinal misalignments can result from many daily activities. Knocks and falls, playground incidents, chairs pulled out from under them, sporting stacks, prolonged postures like from smartphones or playing Xbox or PlayStation… and the list could go on.
Kids can also become misaligned from birth complications such as long labours, very fast labours, or forceps or caesarean delivery. It’s never too soon to introduce your kids to Chiropractic.
How do you know when your kid needs a Chiropractor?
Well, the honest answer is, you don’t. The only way to know is to be checked: a proper spine and nervous system exam, a full posture analysis and, only if necessary, a standing spinal x-ray.
For many kids it is not until the problem has been there for years do they actually experience any pain, if any. The problem usually begins long before the pain does.
It doesn’t hurt to be checked. In fact, it’s fun. At least you know if anything is going on.
We think your kids will love our office and our chiropractors too!
First Chiropractic Visit for Children in Albury
Having your child’s spine checked regularly makes sense. Just like brushing your teeth makes sense. A healthy spine makes sense.
Without a healthy spine, things don’t work well.
Children with correctly aligned spines will be able to reach their maximum potential – whether that’s at school, sport or socially and they will be more adaptable to daily stressors.
Starting spinal maintenance early is the key to unlocking healthy future spines for generations to come. Give us a call to find out more about our Albury kids chiropractor and how we can help you children.
