No matter your age, your body is subjected to a wide variety of stress. For infants, they are susceptible to this stress while in utero as well as during birth. This is why it is important for your baby to be checked as soon as possible—even as early as a couple days old! In addition to checking for spinal misalignment, these check-ups early on in life are important for a healthy nervous system as well.
As infants grow into toddlers and young children, their spines undergo many different forms of stress and trauma. This is strongly the case as they learn to walk, crawl, play, become independent and involve themselves in sports. A number of these may result in subluxations that Adapt Chiropractic can easily detect and resolve. Kids and teens should regularly receive chiropractic check-ups as healthy spines and proper alignment are important for overall health.
