We are often asked if chiropractic care is safe for children. The answer is, yes! In fact, recent studies have shown that chiropractors are the most common non-medical provider visited by children.
In general, chiropractic care is very safe for children and is tailored to the childs needs. The adjustments are much softer and gentler because the child’s joints are looser and easier to move. In addition, children generally heal much more quickly than adults so they typically require just a few treatments to restore normal function.
Most children generally look forward to their appointment!
