This list may not cover all the benefits of chiropractic, but certainly some of the most common responses we hear from our patients at Nandish Chiropractic.
Back and neck pain can be common in both adolescents and teenagers, as most are sitting in classrooms all day. In addition to this, this age group tends to have very poor posture. The increased use of cell phones and computers in the classroom generally lead to poor posture, as children tend to slouch at their desks and hold their head in a forward position when looking at their cell phones. This tends to lead to children losing the normal C-shaped curve in their neck, and developing a straight neck. Technology makes our lives easier, and our posture worse. However, like scoliosis, the loss of the cervical curve can be reversed with early detection.
If you would like to get chiropractic care for yourself or are looking for a pediatric chiropractor, join us at Nandish Chiropractic. We are committed to the health and wellness of you and your family. Children have mandatory dental check ups, why not get their spine and nervous system checked too?
