Chiropractic for Children
Many babies and children have received Chiropractic care at KEY Chiropractic.
People often wonder why babies and children would need to see a Chiropractor. Intrauterine constriction, difficult birthing, falls learning to walk, playing with friends and playing sports can all contribute to spinal problems. Children are often subjected to falls, accidents, jolting and jarring as they grow. With the advent of computers, tablet and mobile phones, children and teens adopt poor postures that create stress in the spine.
Chiropractic techniques used in the care of babies and children differ from techniques used with adults. Typically these techniques involve gentle finger tip pressures (the kind you could tolerate over a closed eyelid).
Where possible we highlight things that young people (or parents) can do at home to help, like stretching and strengthening exercises, training activities and ergonomics.
