Important information about chiropractic for kids.
Hey everybody, it’s Dr. Colin!
I wanted to take the time to make this very special video for parents and grandparents. Although it’s quite common, I’m always shocked when we have children that come in for their exams and find they have significant abnormal curvature in the spine. Children come in, sometimes with symptoms and they sometimes have no symptoms at all. But you know what, it really doesn’t matter either way because if we find a shift in the spine, we know that there is pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. Take a look at this x-ray right here. This is one of our patients, who is a 10-year-old boy. You can clearly see the shift in the spine. The spine should be straight up and down, however the spine is shifting to the left. This is what you may know as “scoliosis”. With our specific and specialized adjusting techniques, we’re able to rehabilitate the spine, allowing it to straighten out.
On the first x-ray, there is pressure on the spinal cord and nerves and in the post x-ray there is no pressure. It is essential for us to make sure that pressure is cleared out and corrected, whether you are an adult or child. Sometimes this spinal shift or scoliosis can be hereditary. Meaning whatever is in the child would be the parent or what is occurring in the parent would be occurring in the child.
