From toddlers to school-age, children are developing and increasingly engaged in a variety of activities that can affect the neuromuculoskeletal system. Learning to walk, riding a bike, growing pains, tumbles and falls, rough-housing during play, heavy backpacks and school sports can all contribute to creating imbalance or inciting injury.
Chiropractic doctors understand the complexities of the neuromuculoskeletal growth in children and how to minimize damage from strain on the spine cased by using mobile devices, also known as ‘text neck syndrome.’ Chiropractic care provides exams and adjustments to optimize joint function in the spine and extremities to help keep kids running at their pull potential. Doctors of chiropractic also offer exercises and techniques to maintain proper posture, provide guidance for ergonomic positioning and counsel families about tech time times to help young people find a healthy balance with technology use.
