North Georgia Spinal Care has the expertise to confidently and safely assist your child as they grow and develop.
More and more parents are seeking chiropractic care for their children because many spinal problems seen in adults begin as early as birth. Even so called 'natural' birthing methods can stress an infant's spine and developing nerve system. The resulting irritation to the nerve system caused by spinal misalignment can be the cause of many newborn health complaints. Colic, breathing problems, nursing difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions and chronic infections can often be traced to nerve system stress.
Given the tremendous amounts of falls and mishaps children experience as they grow, there is a great probability of minor injuries occurring. If neglected, these injuries may lead to more serious problems later in life. Subtle trauma throughout childhood may affect the future development of the spine, leading to impaired nervous system functions.
Your child's spine grows almost 50% in length during that first year (the equivalent of a six-footer growing to nine feet in just 12 months!) It's this kind of tremendous growth and developmental changes which make a complete chiropractic examination so important in the early stages of your child's life.
