Can chiropractic help children, and is it safe to adjust a child?
Yes, Dr. Cate does adjust children. In fact, Dr. Cate has checked children as young as 2 days old. Children are little people and they need adjustments too. Dr. Cate is great with kids and adjusted his own kids as they grew up. Children love to be adjusted and it is very gentle. Most of them find it fun. Often a child can fall and receive an early subluxation to the neck and low back. A subluxation can be a choke hold on good health and a chiropractic adjustment is the only form of treatment that can restore spinal function and reduce nerve interference. A forceps delivery can cause a spinal subluxation to the upper neck and the infant should be checked as soon as possible. There has never been a documented case in the history of chiropractic where a spinal adjustment has injured a child. It is virtually unheard of for an adjustment to injure an adult. Statistics show very clearly that you have more of a chance of getting struck by lightning than getting injured by a chiropractic adjus
