All kids should be checked for subluxation to make sure their nervous system is functioning properly.
Chiropractors have been caring for children for more than 100 years. Many common childhood ailments respond to this safe, natural form of health care. More and more parents—especially those who are already chiropractic patients themselves—are seeking chiropractic care for their children.
As children grow, they encounter many physical stresses throughout their developing years. At any point during their growth, children’s spines can sustain trauma that can cause problems immediately or years down the road. The earliest trauma can be encountered in utero, where an optimal birth position is not present, resulting in a forceps/vacuum delivery or a C-section. This birth trauma causes spinal segments, also known as vertebra, to move out of place resulting in a subluxation. Subuxations cause various symptoms, such as ear infections, breastfeeding difficulties, colic and acid reflux, just to name a few.
Other causes of vertebral subluxations in children can be falls, accidents, sports injuries as well as poor posture. Dr. Sara Mahalko is board certified in pediatrics. She is highly qualified to adjust children to rid their bodies of subluxation, thus resulting in optimal health. Her mission is to serve the Wauwatosa area and provide high quality, natural healthcare.
