Pediatric Chiropractic Care
It is easier to fix things earlier than by trying to fix it after it gets worse or problematic.
Only 10% of the nervous system feels and transmits pain (nociception) so you can have problems without going through pain/symptoms. Pain-free or symptom-free doesn't mean that their body is healthy or having an optimal function. Childhood is the most important stage of life, both physically and neurologically. About 90% of a child's brain develops within the first 6 years of life.
As children continue to grow, their spine undergoes many different forms of trauma as they learn to crawl, walk, play, and become involved in sports. Also, due to increased rates of C-section, forceps, and vacuum delivery, traumatic birth can also lead to spinal stress that can start from early on in their life. Our doctors feel that it is extremely important to have your child checked for spine misalignment as soon as possible so it is not limiting your child's ability to function at their full potential. Wouldn’t you want to proactively promote your child’s health during their early years?
Pediatric chiropractic care may be helpful with nervous/muscular/skeletal system dysfunction in children with:
Head tilt or favouring to look into one direction
Fussiness from discomfort
Pain from injuries or accidents
If you feel that your child may have any signs of subluxation, please contact our pediatric chiropractic Vancouver office to find out what you can do about it.
