What are Spinal Subluxations?
Many physical and mental conditions can result from imbalances in a child's musculoskeletal system or nervous system. which include: torticollis, the onset of autism spectrum disorders ADD through schizophrenia, scoliosis, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain Injury, and congenital or developmental delays. Many children are born with vertebral subluxations This can be due to routine medical birthing procedures and in-utero mispositioning which cause tightened muscles along the fetus neck, back, or hips. Often these imbalances go undetected and uncorrected, and a host of problems result later in life. Many leading chiropractic and medical childhood developmental experts agree that spinal imbalances in-utero and after birth contribute to the abnormal development of a child.
