One of the most common questions I get from my patients is “how old do you have to be to become a patient?”
This question normally stems from the understanding that we develop problems as we grow up. Accumulating stresses in life from such a young age. Bad postural forces are acting on our bodies from the day we start nursery or preschool.
The youngest patients we see at Vida Plena Chiropractic Centre are only days old. Unless there is a severe problem (like an inability to suck) it is wise to wait a week before bringing your baby in to receive a check for vertebral subluxation. However, if you do have a concern bring them in straight away.
The 2 biggest reasons parents bring their babies in are because of a fall on their head and colic symptoms.
Regular chiropractic adjustments promote proper bone and nerve development. Your child´s bones, nerves and spinal cord are constantly making huge strides towards their final development. Chiropractic adjustments ensure that your child´s bones stay in proper alignment and their nerves are not pinched interrupting connection from the brain to the body.
Remember, your children learn from what you do. Start getting your spine checked and it will be more natural for your child.
