Most parents invest in regular checkups for their children’s hearing, vision, eyes, and teeth, but many do not think of scheduling regular checkups for their child’s spine. The spine is an incredibly important part of the human body. It protects the central nervous system which is in charge of sending messages to and from all parts of the body, as well as controlling body function.
Any trauma, subluxations, or immobility in the spine can hinder the nerves’ abilities to communicate throughout the body. Fortunately for most children, the subluxations in their spines do not usually result in pain, though they might. These pain free subluxations are called silent subluxations. Left untreated, silent subluxations have many negative symptoms throughout the body.
These symptoms may include:
According to the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, “chiropractic care for children offers your family a solid foundation for wellness. Throughout pregnancy, birth, and childhood, the chiropractic lifestyle offers choices and benefits for your greater health and well-being.”

To put it simply, the nervous system controls everything the body does. From the spinal cord are nerves that control every organ, gland, tissue, muscle, and cell in the entire body. Since the nervous system is housed within the spine, keeping the spine in alignment is crucial. One misalignment in the spine can result to many negative side effects for your child such as constipation, colic, allergies, ear infections, bed wetting, fussiness, trouble sleeping, reflux, anxiety, and more. Chiropractic focuses on removing these subluxations, allowing your child’s body to function at its peak!
Having a well-maintained and functioning nervous system is crucial for proper growth and development, especially for children who grow so rapidly! By helping pediatric patients keep their spine properly aligned, we believe we are helping them establish the foundation for a healthier life.
Children are incredibly active, and subluxations can easily occur with every bump, trip, fall, trampoline bounce, soccer kick, birth, etc. Children are also put under much more stress to perform these days. Whether it’s pressure on the sports field, academically, or emotionally, it impacts their bodies. The tightened muscles that are so often experienced with stress can also cause misalignments in their spines.
