Chiropractic for Kids
Many people ask, "At what age can somebody be adjusted?" My answer is at any age.
I have adjusted babies on their way home from the hospital directly after birth up to severely osteoporotic seniors. Ideally the BEST time to start chiropractic care is when you are young. Even as a baby in the womb!
Chiropractic for Children in Asheville
Many subluxations actually occur as a baby is coming through the birth canal. But, the majority of all subluxations occur from birth to 20 years of age. Kids are active and as they learn to crawl, they fall and when they get older they jump and still fall. These traumas may seem insignificant to most people, but they can cause many problems as they grow into adults. I'm sure you've heard the saying, "As the twig is bent, so grows the tree." The same is true of children. If their spine is bent (curved), they will grow the same way.
Children treated regularly at a chiropractic office have been found to be healthier. They have less ear infections, colds, and other illnesses. It does not keep them illness-free, however, they will get over illness quicker, without the use of drugs. Most children under chiropractic care miss less school as well!
