Similar to requiring regular dental check-ups, children require regular spinal check-ups, to insure the development of healthy spines. Many significant spinal problems can have their origin in the accidents of a normal, active childhood and even in the process of childbirth, itself. There have been a number of studies linking a healthy spine and nervous system with increased immunity. Many parents report fewer missed school days when their children are checked regularly. Chiropractic adjusting procedures are adapted for a child’s smaller spine.
