Pediatric Chiropractors near Rockville-Derwood, MD
An infant can begin life with misalignments and subluxations due to the 70-90 pounds of pressure added on to their spine during birth. There is an increase of stress on the developing spine as the child is exposed to bumps and bruises while they grow and develop more physical activities, such as crawling and walking. As the twig is bent, so grows the tree. The most important time for a person to have outstanding spinal alignment is during the time of growth. Stresses that infants and toddlers encounter can cause spinal and nerve subluxations, which eventually could cause short to long term consequences.
Exposing your child to chiropractic care will determine whether the child has subluxations. Most people view pediatric chiropractic care as regular adjustments most adults are exposed to. However, spinal manipulation for children are as gentle as testing the ripeness of a tomato, without causing any discomfort. The purpose of pediatric chiropractic care is to reduce stress on a child's body, through a natural healing process of the body to heal itself.
Today more parents are bringing in their children for chiropractic care for familiar health concerns such as, colds, allergies and especially ear infections.
