Chiropractic and Children

Children often face many of the same issues as adults such as poor posture, trauma, stress, and sports injuries. Stresses from their daily activities at home, school and while playing sports may result in muscular imbalances, muscle strains or tension and irritation of the joints of the spine.

Common conditions treated in children include:

  • Postural problems
  • Headaches
  • Back and neck pain
  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Growing pains
  • Sports injuries

One of the most common causes of back pain in children is carrying a backpack that is too heavy or not fitted properly.
