The first subluxation usually occurs at birth due to the immense pressure of a baby moving through the birth canal. During this stage, the compression to the spine may cause the baby’s tiny bones to be pushed out of alignment.
As children grow, they learn how to sit, crawl, stand up and eventually walk – their spines endure more subluxations. Part of their childhood often includes falls, riding bikes and playing sports thus causing even more subluxations. We are even seeing subluxations caused by text neck and improper backpack posture.
All children should have their spines checked for subluxation. Dr.Chait offers a complimentary posture analysis and consultation for children of all ages. Call us today at 941-371-1070 to schedule your appointment. Our children deserve to grow up with healthy spines!
