Chiropractic care for children is safe, gentle and effective.  Many parents bring their children to Back To Health Chiropractic Centre for regular chiropractic care. 

Mom and Child HappyHow do you know if your child needs a chiropractic spinal check-up? Consider this …

1. The birth process. Whether natural or Cesarean, birthing can be traumatic for the new born baby, especially when forceps  or vacuum extraction was used. All children have been through the birth process therefore they deserve a chiropractic spinal check-up. 

2. Milestones. When a child progresses through major milestones, like crawling, sitting, walking, this is an important time for a chiropractic spinal check-up because the normal curves of the spine are developing during these milestones.  

3. Falls and tumbles. Certainly when there is a serious fall the child’s spine must be checked. However, an infant may have “little” tumbles many times throughout their childhood from playing and from activities like bike riding.  Each of these tumbles add stress to the spine and nervous system over time even when there is no pain.  Therefore, a chiropractic spinal check-up is certainly necessary.
