Kids and Chiropractic
Is Chiropractic safe for baby or child?
The neck is made up of the first 7 vertebrae of spine, including ligaments and muscles. It’s main role is to support the heavy weight of the head and allow movements such as nodding and shaking of the head. As you can imagine, this is a tough role for the neck.
Neck pain can present as acute, sub- acute and chronic in nature and can be related to an injury or just the stress of the type of lives that we live. Neck pain will affect most people at some point in their life and is usually short lived and not all presentations will develop into a chronic problem.
Usually neck pain that does not go away by itself will require a full assessment from a health care practitioner.
