During a child’s formative years the spine is at its most vulnerable. Even before birth a baby’s head, neck, and back is placed under a lot of stress as it moves within the womb. This trauma is often further increased during the birth process. Treatment can consist of a series of gentle adjustments to the parts of the spine which are misaligned, as we would begin to remove any nerve stress and return the body to a state of ‘willingness’. Our Doctors may also give you a nutritional and postural advice.
As your child grows, everyday playing, athletics, and the stress of growing and life can all lead to sublixation in your child’s spine. This may lead to a lowered resistance to illness and can result in poor function in the body’s natural healing process.
This is why a spinal check-up should be part of a yearly examination schedule. Prevention is key to a healthy and happy existence.
