Why Children Need Chiropractic Care!

Why Children Need Chiropractic Care! by your chiropractor in Chelsea, Manhattan and BrooklynChiropractic care for children offers your family a solid foundation for wellness. By having your child’s spine checked you are maintaining the health of your child’s entire body, and the best of all, naturally! Chiropractic care is gentle and safe. There is very little force needed to adjust a child, so there is no need to worry about potential side effects.   

A child encounters many physical stresses during their growing years. The resulting problems in children’s spines can occur at almost any point in their development and growth.

A ground breaking study from ICPA on the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic care for children shows outstanding results. The results also show that chiropractic care is totally safe for children. Even more significant is that parents reported three unexpected improvements with their child’s care:

  1. Improved sleeping
  2. Improved behavior and attitude
  3. Improved immune system function
