From birth through puberty the human body goes through massive growth and changes – more than any other time in life. A healthy spine in a child is not something that should be taken for granted, or ignored. Chiropractic for kids helps ensure proper alignment through all those critical growth milestones. MoveWell Chiropractic of Waconia, MN and Hutchinson, MN provides services for all ages and stages of life, ensuring that your nervous system is communicating with your body at its full capacity.
A recent study done by Viola Frymann, D.O. demonstrates that 90% of newborns suffered the effects of birth trauma that associated strain through the neck and cranial areas following birth. Frymann studied more than 1500 babies across an 8 year period. She examined all the babies within the first 5 days of birth; some where even checked within their first 24 hours born. This study revealed that approximately 10% of the newborns had perfect, freely mobile skulls or cranial mechanisms. 10% had severe trauma to the head, evident even to untrained observers. The remaining 80% all had some strain patterns in the cranial mechanism.

Once children are on the move, they start to do normal childhood activities like riding a bike, skating, sports, etc. and these can result in small but significant spinal misalignments. If these spinal misalignments are neglected in childhood where we see the most rapid period of growth in a person’s life, these can lead to more serious problems later in life. Subtle trauma throughout childhood will affect the future development of the spine leading to impaired nervous system function. Keeping your children in a routine of getting adjusted throughout all the falls, tumbles, sports and everyday activities can help promote a healthy lifestyle for your child.
