Should your child see a Chiropractor?
Chiropractic treatment is based upon basic biological and physiological sciences that apply to children from birth to full development as they do the adult. It is an effective treatment for neuromusculoskeletal conditions of the neonate, infant, toddler, pre‐school aged, pre‐adolescent and adolescent child.
The Alberta College and Association of Chiropractors (ACAC) asserts that chiropractic treatment is as beneficial to children as it is to adults and that the efficacy and benefits of the delivery of chiropractic care to individuals 18 years of age and under are well supported by a body of ongoing research and documented case histories.
