Children Spinal Degeneration

Do you children need chiropractic care? YES

Does research support the need for children to have chiropractic care? YES

Do children see amazing results while under chiropractic care? YES

Technically, that should be the end of this handout. That’s all that needs to be said. But just in case you want to know WHY; here it is…

A Scottish medical doctor did a study on 154 10 year old children checking for the prevalence of spinal stenosis using MRI. He was shocked to discover that 9% of the 10 years old had spinal degeneration.1

In another study from 2015, it was found that 37% of asymptomatic 20 year olds had spinal degeneration. These kids have no symptoms!!! 37%! 2

Studies have shown that when the vertebrae of the human spine are in Subluxation (out of alignment) the physical stress on the spine begins degenerative processes within only 2 weeks! This is why the best ongoing care frequency is 2 weeks. If you are only getting adjusted every 4 weeks or less, your spine is in a degenerative state.

I’ve been adjusting my own children since birth. Not because I can, but because I NEED TO. I feel physically ill to my stomach if I have missed giving my boys their weekly adjustment. I know that stress is beginning to build up with their nervous system and they are not functioning at their best. I don’t want my children more vulnerable to ear infections, colds, headaches, spinal degeneration, cancer, etc. And I don’t want that for you or your children either. #GetAdjusted

Graciously serving,
