Is chiropractic care safe for children?

How old do you have to be before seeing a chiropractor? 

The answer is: 0 days old! 

Yes, I have adjusted newborns the day they are born.  If you think about it, being born is the one of the most traumatic experiences many of us will ever go through.  Here we have this tiny baby whose skull is still mostly cartilage being squeezed through an opening that isn't all that big. 

Some of our neck and spine problems can be traced back to day one! 

While we do treat some infants and very young children, most of our pediatric patients are grade school age and beyond, and many of them are in athletics where they are beating themselves up on a normal basis. 

Fortunately, kids are resilient and typically respond very quickly to chiropractic adjustments. They usually don't need quite as much work as we old folks! 

Long story short, chiropractic is totally safe for young spines and can be a good start to a long, healthy life!
