Is A Chiropractor Safe for Kids?
Myth #6: Only adults can see chiropractors.
Fact: Chiropractors receive training to adjust all people, from babies to the elderly. Some chiropractors receive additional specialized training for babies and children.
The American Chiropractic Association cites a study done in 2014 confirming that chiropractic adjustments are overwhelmingly safe in infants and children. Chiropractic care can be an effective preventative technique to help limit the chance of spinal issues in adulthood. It has also been known to decrease stress and anxiety, increase energy, and even prevent ADHD and similar neurodevelopmental disorders.
For children who play sports or engage in other activities where injuries are commonplace, chiropractic can be used as a tool for both prevention and recovery.
