One question some of you have that I would like to answer today is …”why would my chiropractor want to check my children when they are not in any pain?”.
There are a few different answers to this question but in my view the most important reason a chiropractor would want to check your kids is to detect any potential health issues that can be related to spinal misalignments or subluxations.
Some examples of such issues are pinched nerves, poor immune system function, headaches, text neck, computer neck, lower back pain, spinal degenerative arthritis and crooked posture just to list a few of the more common ones.[flashvideo file=http://lifechiropractic.s3.amazonaws.com/01.06.2015.chiropractic.check.up.for.kids.bi-1.m4v image=https://lifechiropracticcentre.ca/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/chiropractic.check_.up_.for_.kids_.jpg width=500 height=305 /]
Often times these issues can develop into serious health problems when they could have totally been avoided with early detection and early correction.
Not all chiropractors treat children but for those that do, this is one of the most important reasons why they would want to check your children.
