Why does chiropractic work so well for kids milestone issues?
While chiropractors work with the spine, many people think it is only for spinal issues. In fact, chiropractic can help with the central control system of the body; the nervous system. By providing gentle adjustments in the spine, it allows your child’s spine to develop a healthy structure which also directly effects the function of the nervous system. If the nervous system if functioning more efficiently it gives your child the best chance to develop as there are no interferences in the body. This will allow your child to develop the way it should thus increasing the likelihood of reaching certain milestones along your child’s growth.
