Babies & Children

A child's brain and nervous system experience tremendous growth and development during their first couple years of life. At birth, a baby's brain weighs about 12 ounces, which is about 25% of its full size. At age 2, a child's brain is about 80% of the full adult size. At age 6 the brain is about 90% of its full adult size. Proper nervous system function is incredibly important to a child's health and wellbeing. Chiropractic is able to positively affect the nervous system, which includes the brain, by locating and adjusting subluxations. Chiropractic care is great for children, including babies. The first major trauma we experience in life is birth. This is why, at Roots Chiropractic, we understand the importance of chiropractic care for children starting at birth. Chiropractic may help children reach developmental milestones and adapt to everyday stressors of life.
