We all know how active children are. They play hard, running, jumping, climbing, and horsing around with each other. While this is extremely important, all of this physical activity can put added stress on the spinal nerves as a result of multiple mini traumas. The spine is home to the spinal cord, the most amazing bundle of nerves that controls every cell, tissue, and organ in the body. Even the slightest misalignment of the vertebrae can cause interference to these nerve bundles resulting in diminished function of very important neurological processes.
We think nothing of having our children’s teeth and eyes checked routinely, yet many times we neglect the importance of a spinal checkup. Childhood should be a time of fun, growth, and preparation for a healthy adulthood. Many times children spend this precious, limited time plagued with adult-type problems such as fatigue, nervousness, poor concentration, headaches, back pain, or irritability, just to name few. Far to many times adults present to our office with problems stemming from an accumulation of childhood, adolescent, and adult mini traumas that build up over the years.
