Why Every Child Should See a Chiropractor

Think about a child’s life. They run and jump, fall and roll. They grow and change, experiencing numerous injuries from the fun of life. They are surrounded by germs and toxins, and oftentimes end up taking antibiotics several times in their young years.


Children are resilient, yes, but they can also experience health problems and injuries due to their active lifestyles. Chiropractic care is a natural, safe, and effective way to help children remain as strong as possible. 

If a child’s spine is out of alignment, he or she will be more susceptible to injury, sickness, and disease. We at Shapiro Family Chiropractic know that all children can, and will, benefit from regular chiropractic care for these very reasons.

The focus of chiropractic care is the body's natural ability to heal itself.

When the body functions efficiently, germs, toxins, and stresses do not influence the health of a child as rapidly. In addition, regular chiropractic adjustments can have a positive impact in reducing the number of ear infections, growing pains, and stomach problems in children.

Because chiropractic adjustments free the spine from extra stress, children sleep better. There have also been numerous cases of improved behavior and attitude, as well as better immune system functioning.

Children who play on athletic teams will also benefit from chiropractic care, as adjustments improve performance and reduce the chance of injury.

Dr. David Shapiro of Shapiro Family Chiropractic has personally witnessed the amazing benefits of regular chiropractic care in his children and the lives of his pediatric patients.
