Regular chiropractic checkups can identify and correct any potential spinal injuries or misalignments in your child. Addressing these issues early in life can help avoid many of the health complaints seen later as an adult.

These misalignments, or subluxations, can be caused by an awkward birth, problematic growth, a slight injury or many other factors.
