A Chiropractic spinal checkup could be one of the most important of your childs life! Why? The jumping, falling, running and bumping of a normal childhood often may cause undetected Chiropractic Vertebral Subluxation Complexes (V.S.C), with serious health consequences if uncorrected.1 In addition, the birth process can put tremendous stress on the newborns's spine tha could lead to many health problems.2
Emotionally Healthy Children: Clinicians and parents have observed often dramatic improvements in the physical, neurological and emotional health of children following chiropractic spinal care. This includes children with learning disabilities, anxiety, concentration and attention problems, hyperactivity, attention deficit disorder (ADD), dyslexia, discipline problems, low IQ and low grades.3-7
