At VANCOUVER Chiropractic we will conduct a careful and thorough evaluation of your child's spine. Dr. Nora Rahemtulla is trained to evaluate pediatric
spinal problems and will use gentle, specific skills to identify, evaluate, and treat any involved spinal areas.
Spinal adjustments for infants and young children involve very light finger-tip adjustments to correct malfunctioning spinal structures. A light spinal adjustment, using no more than 8 ounces of pressure, is usually sufficient to restore mobility to spinal joints which have become locked and are causing interference with the normal function of the nervous system. Some adjustments make a "popping"
sound when the spinal joints are moved, however this sound is
not always heard when children's spines are adjusted.
Children's spines are a lot more mobile than those of adults and as a result, usually respond to care in a shorter period of time.
