A child's nervous system is the controller and regulator of all the other systems in their growing body. From blood flow, to brain function and bone growth, the nervous system plays a central role in keeping things working and healthy. Stress and misalignment of the spine can have serious impacts on your child's overall health, behavior, and development. Fox Chiropractic Wellness Center is a chiropractic clinic that offers gentle and non-invasive therapy that works to correct underlying issues before they become hard-wired in during development, providing support for a pain-free and successful childhood.
What’s the value of chiropractic care for children in Gig Harbor?
Keeping your child in good spinal health is an essential element to their healthy growth and development. As soon as children develop problems in the spine, the body begins compensating for it and problems may develop.
A subluxation is a misalignment of the spine that closes an opening and affects nerve function. A subluxation can be caused by a sports injury, falls, car accidents, etc. Most subluxations are painless, often without obvious symptoms. Checking to determine if this is occurring in your child’s spine is very simple, easy, and painless. Because of the importance Dr. Fox places on pediatric chiropractic, he will determine the presence of a subluxation prior to proceeding with an exam or taking x-rays.
