Do kids need Chiropractic? [spoiler alert: YES]

I'm often baffled at why many people believe that kids - and babies in particular - do not need chiropractic.  By the time most adults find their way to chiropractic, they are suffering from chronic symptoms that have been developing over the course of many, many years - often from injuries sustained and left untreated during their childhood and teenage years! Children's skeletons and nervous systems are rapidly developing, and they are very sensitive to changes. Babies in particular are vulnerable, particularly after invasive or traumatic birth experiences, and unfortunately, they are unable to verbally communicate what is going on. A chiropractor specifically trained in the delicate art of baby-adjusting can help to literally change a person's life. I am going to include a link here to a great article about a life-changing adjustment given to a wailing baby up in an airplane a couple of years ago:

Food for thought!

And incidentally, if you are interested in learning more about chiropractic philosophy
"from the inside," I highly recommend the Spinal Column Radio podcast.  It is pure gold for chiropractors, chiropractic students and lovers of chiropractic philosophy. Health comes from the inside, not the outside. Drugs and surgery are awesome for traumatic emergencies, but they've got little to nothing to do with day-to-day health and wellness. For that, you need a sound nervous system, and that starts with a healthy spine and brain!

And that is all I have to say about that.  Be well!
