Chiropractic & Kids

5 Reasons for kids to see a Lake Forest Pediatric Chiropractor

1. Birth Creates trauma. Many births can be complicated and lead to hours if not days of pushing and compressing a babies developing body. In addition, pulling, twisting, yanking during delivery on the child’s head or forceps and vacuum extractions. All these cause trauma to the spine of a newborn creating subluxations and spinal cord damage that can be silent for years. In lake forest pediatrics Chiropractic treatment improves the spinal adjustment of the new-born, helping them to recover from the birth-trauma.

2. Our nervous systems, made up of our brain and spinal cord, control every function of the human body.

Rapid physical and chemical changes during pregnancy can aggravate existing spinal problems and can make the spine and pelvis unstable through relaxation of the ligaments.
