Why Should Children Have Chiropractic Care?

February 25, 2014

Many parents are seeking chiropractic care for children to benefit their wellness and growth. Although it may seem that children are too young to require spinal adjustments, some infants experience subluxations (misaligned vertebrae) in utero, and as part of the birthing process. The process of learning to walk, crawl, tumble and ride bicycles can cause subluxations during formative years and can lead to serious issues later on in their adult lives.


Your vertebrae and its surrounding tissues help protect your spinal cord, which acts as the line of communication between your brain and body. Over time and with the rapid growth of childhood, subluxations can impede the nerve system and affect organs, movement, the immune system and a multitude of other medical conditions. Seeking chiropractic care for children can help prevent these serious health issues. Here are five other reasons your child should seek chiropractic care.

Brain and Nerve Development

A child’s brain is hard at work during the formative years. By ensuring your child’s spine is in proper alignment and removing possible neural stress, the brain and nerve systems are free to develop without interference.

Health and Wellbeing 

Children who receive regular chiropractic care have stronger immune systems and are often less prone to colds, ear infections and other childhood afflictions.

Allergies and Asthma

Chiropractic care for children has been helpful in reducing the frequency and severity of asthma attacks and other breathing disorders. It has also been shown to reduce allergy symptoms.

Behavior and Ailment

With a fully functioning nerve system, children receiving regular adjustments show improvement in behavioral issues, digestive issues, and colic. They also have an easier time overcoming bedwetting.

Body Mechanics

Proper posture and an aligned spine will allow your child’s body to reach its maximum growth and strength potential, as well as to improve coordination.
