Children and Chiropractic Care

Children Need Chiropractic Care Windsor Ontario Huron Church Chiropractor and Family Wellness CentreIt is never too early to bring your child to the chiropractor. Children benefit from chiropractic care at any age and during all stages of development.

Consider how your child’s body reacts to the normal day to day events of childhood and the resulting stress on their spines:

  • Playing sports
  • Spending time sitting at a desk
  • Playing on electronic devices
  • Carrying heavy backpacks

How often should your child see a chiropractor? 

Chiropractic for children varies as much as chiropractic for adults and it’s often difficult to know when your kids need chiropractic care, as problems may not manifest as painful symptoms.

Here are a few signs to be aware of:

  • Pain from an injury or fall
  • Poor posture
  • Signs of imbalance such as limping or head tilting
  • Restricted head or neck movement
  • Problems sleeping

It’s a good idea for children to visit a chiropractor twice a year to ensure any problems can be discovered early on.
