Because children have healthy growing spines, they are the perfect chiropractic patients. A small spinal curve or other issue can be easily spotted in a chiropractic exam and quickly addressed. The spine is similar to a young tree that begins to grow crooked. If you don’t give it the support to grow straight, you’ll end up with a tree with a curved trunk. Children are much the same. It’s also important to protect children from the neurologic health changes that are often caused by a misaligned spine.
