Parents try to provide their children with the safest and healthiest environment to grow in. With increased drug side effects concern and opioid epidemic awareness, chiropractic treatment and spinal manipulations are becoming a common healthcare choice when caring for children 18 years and younger.
Dr. Tilson is a pediatric chiropractor, providing gentle adjustments to hundreds of infants and children, one as soon as the baby was born at 7 days old!
These are the most common questions about pediatric chiropractic care:
Why would an infant or child need chiropractic adjustments?
Infants and children undergo numerous physical changes. Rapid growth can lead to spinal dysfunction and vertebral subluxations. An infant's spine grows by 50% in the first year alone.
Changes to the spine directly affect both the nervous system and joint health.
Being proactive now ensures healthy future development. It's much harder to correct an issue than to prevent it.
