spine before it becomes a problem?
"How could a child have a
subluxation (spinal misalignment) at such an early age?"
Since the birth process itself can have a

for subluxations (spinal misalignments). Later, as children begin to sit up,
crawl, walk and run, the spine is introduced to new stresses. Ordinary childhood
falls and mishaps often cause subluxations (spinal misalignments). Left
unchecked, these misalignments will remain and cause problems in adulthood, if
A spinal checkup could be one of the most
important checkups of a child's life. Because the spine is the housing for the
spinal cord, the nervous system is affected by even one spinal bone being out of
proper alignment. The nervous system controls the functions of all the organs,
glands, muscles and tissues in the body. With a healthy spinal column, a body
can better defend itself from ear infections, fevers, sore throats, childhood
diseases of all kinds. .
