The only major difference between adults’ bodies and childrens’ bodies is the size. Our organs are the same, so are our bones (for the most part. Children’s bones are mostly cartilage that slowly turns to solid bone as they age). Thus, they can experience the same ailments as adults. After all, they play, fall down, play sports, and can have poor posture. By investing in chiropractic appointments for your infant and children when they are young, you can ensure they grow up healthy and strong.

Flex Chiropractic is located in Lexington and Columbia. We offer chiropractic care for infants and children. Our family chiropractors have over 22 years of experience helping your family stay healthy. Below, we’ll take a look at just a few of the benefits of chiropractic care for infants and children.

BENEFITS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR INFANTS & CHILDREN

Promotes Proper Alignment of the Spine & Neck

Having good posture is critical to your overall health. Good posture can help relieve lower back pain, headaches, and helps with balance — all things that affect children and infants. With a properly aligned spine and neck, not only can your children avoid diseases such as scoliosis, but they will also have better neural pathways as their spines won’t have undue pressure on them.

Can Help with Sleeping

When infants’ and childrens’ spines are misaligned, it can affect their sleep. It can disrupt their nervous system and the messages sent to your brain via the spinal column.

Helps Realign Spine After Falls

Infants and children fall constantly as they are still developing balance and coordination. These falls can lead to microtraumas, which over time can lead to bigger issues, such as subluxations of the spine. This can cause other health conditions down the road.
