Why Consider Chiropractic for Your Child?

In today’s digital age, many children spend excessive time on devices, leading to poor posture and postural strains. These stresses can cause the spine to grow abnormally, impacting overall health and well-being. Improper backpack usage, like carrying it on one shoulder, can create stress that may contribute to spinal misalignments.

Left unchecked, these issues may lead to aches, pains, and performance problems in the future. Early detection and correction are key to ensuring your child’s spine grows straight and strong.

Our team looks at ways to free up the stuck joints and help things move better, so they can function correctly. We also work with children to help change some of their harmful habits, whether that’s limiting their device usage or showing them a different way to use it.


What to Expect at Happy Spine

During your child’s initial visit, we’ll discuss your concerns, review their health history, and conduct a comprehensive digital posture analysis. We’ll use advanced nerve scans to identify any areas of nerve pressure caused by postural issues that have impacted the body’s natural healing abilities. Your child’s activity levels will dictate how much treatment is required.

We may recommend gentle, child-friendly X-rays to gain a clearer understanding of the situation. Our approach is always conservative, prioritising your child’s safety and well-being.

When to Seek Pediatric Chiropractic Care

If your child experiences ongoing pain for more than a day or so, poor posture, or difficulties standing upright against a wall without something sticking out, it’s time to seek professional care to prevent them from growing into an abnormal posture. For optimal spinal development, we recommend an initial assessment around six to eight years old for girls and eight to ten years old for boys.

However, don’t hesitate to bring your child in sooner if you notice any concerning signs. The earlier we address potential issues, the better we can support their growth and development.
