Did you know that by the age of 5 years old, the average child will have experienced over 2,000 falls, 10% of which would be considered serious? Although many parents consider this normal, the chiropractors at Stucky Chiropractic Center want you to know that child chiropractic care is very important for the child’s health and wellbeing. A growing number of studies have shown that children who receive regular chiropractic care get less ear infections, less asthma, less allergies, take fewer prescriptions, and require fewer doctor visits. Here’s an interesting news story about why some parents swear by chiropractic care for infants, and older children.
Dr. Becker would like to encourage all parents to make sure their children have their spine checked by a chiropractor early on. This is one of the best ways to ensure a happy healthy infancy, early childhood and better teenage years. It is easier to fix a small problem now then a big problem as an adult.
