Why Would My Kids Need Adjustments?

“The Well For You” with Dr. Garst

Kids? Adjustments? Wait… should these words even be in the same sentence? Much like adults, the answer can certainly be yes. Children, like adults, need to be treated from the inside out. It is just that we don’t focus on the spine because unlike the outside, it is hidden away inside, being taken for granted. If you think about it, there are many things that can affect the alignment of your child’s spine throughout the course of his or her development. Learning to hold up the head, sitting upright, crawling, and walking, etc., are all examples of activities that affect spinal alignment and are important times to have a child checked by a Chiropractic Doctor.* At The Well Chiropractic Clinic, we see and treat children and young adults with adjustments for sports-related injury and trauma, allergic problems, ear infections, and yes, even bed-wetting. Remember, when the spine is aligned, all of our nerves are communicating at the highest potential level, thereby helping the body to communicate at its best and heal itself. Even wearing a heavy book bag for a long period of time, sitting too much in school, getting hurt in gym class, or taking a fall on the playground or from a bike, can potentially affect the spine’s alignment. Not to mention, gearing up for lifelong mobility with preventative chiropractic care gives your kids the edge to having a very long, very healthy, very mobile lifestyle. Our practice and office is super kid-friendly, and we often see and treat entire families in just one visit! At The Well Chiropractic Clinic, we do believe that many kids are in need of adjustments and can provide the right kind of care–kids love us! Live Well. Be Well.
