Chiropractic is for kids too!
Although anytime is a good time to have your child examined by a chiropractor, certain milestones are good times to ensure that the spine is developing normally without stress.
- A checkup after birth helps ensure a reduction in stress on a baby's spine during the pregnancy from poor positioning (transverse, breech), or during birthing.
The curve in our necks develops as a baby starts to hold their head up around 3 months. The curve in our upper backs develops as a baby starts to sit around 6 months.
The curve in our low backs develops with crawling around 9 months.
These landmarks are good times for checkups, in addition to during growth spurts
Monthly checkups help keep our children strong and healthy!!
