Chiropractic is not only for adults it is for children also.  Birth is a traumatic experience on the mother as well as the baby.  Kids have falls every day.  All of these things add up and may misalign the spine which needs to be checked.

 

A misaligned vertebra is the shifting of a bone in the spine from forceful trauma or repetitive movement.  A misalignment changes the normal mechanics of the spine causing pain and altered function. 

An adjustment is a specific, controlled force into the body using the hands to correct a misaligned vertebrae.  This force is applied in the direction of the misalignment with the intention of restoring its normal position. 

Chiropractic is a form of physical medicine.  If a physical force has caused a problem in the body, then a physical correction can cure it.  Chemicals cannot correct a physical problem.
