The only way children can truly reach their fullest potential in life is to have a nervous system free from interference so that their mind and bodies can adapt to all of the physical, chemical, and mental stresses that our current environment carries. When properly balanced throughout their developmental years their energy can be used to access higher levels of creative thought instead, processing, and mobility. In other words, they have the best possible chance of reaching their fullest potential in life.

More and more parents are seeking chiropractic care for their children and teens. Many spinal problems seen in adults began as early as birth.
Many newborn health complaints such as Colic, breathing problems, nursing difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions, chronic infections and more are correlated with an irritation to the nerve system caused by spinal and cranial misalignment.
As children begin to participate in regular childhood activities like skating or riding a bike, small yet significant nerve dysfunction may occur. If neglected, the injuries during this period of rapid growth may lead to more serious problems later in life. Subtle trauma throughout childhood and teen years will affect the future development of the spine leading to impaired nervous system function. Any interference to the vital nerve system will adversely affect the body’s ability to function at its best.
Regular chiropractic checkups can identify potential spinal injury from these traumas, make the correction early in life and help avoid many of the health complaints seen later in adults.

Starting with chiropractic care while your baby is days old can help forge a lifetime of good health.
