How important is seeing your chiropractor? Well, if you have a spine and a nervous system. I believe having a spinal check up is just as important as having a dental check up. If you have (and want to keep) your teeth!
As we grow and develop, it is vital to ensure proper alignment and movement. Kids need flexibility and balance in the spine and muscles as mobility changes. Chiropractors are trained to assess all of the above and re-establish as well as correct areas of inflexibility and limited movement of the musculo-skeletal system.
Children should receive spinal check ups at different milestones and as they grow. For example: sitting up to pushing on their knees, crawling to walking, walking to running.
Insufficient time spent learning the basics of crawling or walking can limit the stimulation of important pelvic stabilizers and core muscles when running, jumping, or even transitioning from varies positions. Thus leading to undesirable consequences in adolescence. Poor posture, stress, text neck, falls, and sports injuries are among many things that can cause strain to the body and can result in dysfunction and subsequent pain.
Check it out before symptoms and noticeable imbalances present itself.
