It seems children never run out of energy, they go all day long running, jumping, and playing hard.Sometimes all this physical activity puts stress on the spinal nerves; this may lead to lowering a child’s resistance and open the door for many illnesses.The slightest misalignment can cause a child to suffer from adult type problems, such as headaches, back pain, poor concentration, irritability, etc. and for many, a simple, painless spinal exam will allow Dr. Sitzmann to find, and treat if necessary any misalignments.In addition to spinal care, we will also examine and monitor the growth of your child’s body, address important nutritional needs, offer correct exercise programs, and help to prepare your child for a healthy adulthood. Your child should receive a chiropractic examination as soon as possible following birth. Travel down the birth canal and the birth itself is arguably the most traumatic event to happen to the infant spine. After the initial examination and treatment if indicated, your child should be checked at all major developmental milestones (crawling, standing, walking) and periodically for slips and falls and all the usual childhood tumbles.
