Have you ever taken your child to the chiropractor? Your child’s spine and nervous system need to be cared for just like an adults, especially as they go through periods of rapid growth and development! It is a chiropractor’s job to examine the spine and evaluate for proper movement, function, and alignment. If any vertebral subluxations are found, they gently adjust the spine to reduce inflammation and restore nerve function.
