Dr. Bonnie Chuter of Richmond Family Chiropractic answers a question about
Children and Chiropractors
I believe that children have the most to benefit from early preventative health care. Children, especially, children in sports like hockey, gymnastics, dance, skating, martial arts, lacrosse, football, and any other competitive sport need regular chiropractic checkups.
Any stress or trauma to a developing spine can lead to long term health problems; including scoliosis, postural problems, back and neck pain, headaches, digestion trouble, poor immune system, lowered concentration and poor energy. If children are checked and adjusted regularly, they may have better range of motion, better immunity, fewer injuries, more energy, better athletic performance, better concentration in school, more strength and coordination, fewer aches and pains, less need for medication and antibiotics.
Chiropractic care for children is safe, gentle and effective.
At Richmond Family Chiropractic, I use drop table adjustments and instrument adjusting to make sure children are adjusted appropriately for their body size and age. I have taken additional post graduate training in helping women during pregnancy and pediatric chiropractic through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. My focus in practice is family wellness care.
If you want your child to be healthy, excel in their sport and prevent injuries, include regular chiropractic adjustments in their life.
