Does my child need Chiropractic and is it safe?

This is a question we often get from not only the public, but our own families! There is a misconception that all Chiropractors do are “crack” bones. If you have ever met a good chiropractor, this is far from the truth.

Here at HealthFit, we take a very holistic approach to all of your complaints. Your problems are not just limited to back and joint pain, but can address a host of other issues not traditionally labeled “orthopedic” in nature.

95% of infants have misalignments after birth. Chiropractic is shown to relax muscular tension, improve sleep, can reduce colic symptoms,and can improve breastfeeding outcomes in newborns.

Is your child suffering from allergies that aren’t being “cured” with western medicine? Does he/she complain of back and neck pain from sittingand studying all day?

Chiropractic adjustments do not technically have to result in the “crack” which most of the public equates with treatment. Depending on the client, there are many forms of adjusting which can move the joints with gentle directed pressure with use of hands or specific instruments. We address the joints, muscles, ligaments, organs and even the emotional stresses of life with a variety of methods.

Kids need Chiropractic just as much or even more than their parents. With the prevalence of overuse injuries due to poor posture with prolonged hours on their phones and gaming devices; as well as early sports specialization, kids are being subjected to a great deal of stress on their bodies.

It’s time to get your kids functioning optimally today!
