Children suffer injuries that lead to misalignments just as adults do. Children generally respond very well and quickly to gentle chiropractic adjustments.
A case in point is that of a 5 year-old boy who complained of back pain to his parents for a couple of years. His pediatrician took x-rays and said the pain was due to his above-average size. His mother was hesitant to see a chiropractor but felt as though she had no other options. The boy’s response to care was quick.
According to the boy’s mother: “After the first treatment, I could tell a difference in how his back was feeling. The complaints and constant requests for heating pads and back rubs began to decrease. My only regret is that I didn’t make his appointment much sooner!”
