Chiropractic for children and youth
Chiropractic is very beneficial from early childhood through adolescence, as it helps strengthen the immune system and can lay the foundation for lifelong health. Chiropractic adjustments in children and adolescents ensure good physical and emotional development and, in general, achieve optimal results more quickly and easily than in adults.
Already at the time of delivery, whether it is natural or by cesarean section, the baby may suffer subluxations, especially in the neck area, so it is highly recommended a chiropractic review of the newborn to ensure that your spine is well aligned. If forceps have been used or if the delivery was difficult, a check-up by the chiropractor is even more important, as the baby’s fragile spine will have been subjected to increased stress. In this examination, the chiropractor also checks that the baby responds well to various stimuli and makes sure that everything is working properly.
If your baby suffers from colic or breastfeeding problems, chiropractic can be very useful, because they usually disappear in a few sessions (even in a single session depending on the case) and in a very natural way. If your baby cries a lot, or you often see him restless and nervous, he will also find relief thanks to chiropractic, as the adjustments will help him relax and sleep much better.
And, don’t worry, chiropractic cannot be dangerous or harmful to your baby because the adjustments on babies are specific and very gentle: they consist of light pressure with the fingertips on the back and skull. Just look at the relaxed faces of the babies who visit us after their adjustment and the satisfaction with which their parents look at them, whom we thank for their confidence in us. For your peace of mind, in our LinQ centers many babies have benefited from chiropractic and receive adjustments from chiropractors accredited with the specialty of pediatric chiropractic and with a lot of experience in this field.
Benefits of chiropractic in infants

- Facilitates baby’s rest
In later stages of your child’s development, chiropractic can also be very beneficial. It will help with posture and back problems. If he or she already has bad postural habits or back pain from backpacking or poor posture at home or at school, chiropractic will help correct them without almost realizing it. More and more children spend hours and hours sitting, often poorly positioned, which impairs the proper growth of their spine to the point of causing back discomfort. If your son or daughter has scoliosis, chiropractic care can help prevent it from getting worse. Do not hesitate to ask us any questions!
Chiropractic not only has postural benefits for children, but it has also been shown to improve their ability to concentrate, which improves their school performance. It also helps them relax and rest better at night. It is also especially useful in cases of enuresis or hyperactivity.
On the other hand, chiropractic is beneficial in strengthening their immune system, showing a substantial improvement in case of colds, infections or allergies. If your son or daughter often gets colds or has many ear infections, a visit to a chiropractor is highly recommended.
Finally, even though children may appear rubbery, the frequent falls they suffer throughout their development can cause a misalignment in their spine from the impact received, so it can be very beneficial to check that their spine is aligned and has the correct motion by having a chiropractic check-up from time to time.
Ultimately, chiropractic care for children ensures their optimal growth and lays the foundation for good health in the future.
Many children come to our LinQ centers, and in just a few sessions they usually correct the reason why they came to us. We love to see them grow up healthy and happy!

In adolescents, chiropractic helps with postural problems associated with the use of cell phones, tablets or computers, which usually consist of an excessive curvature of the back, with advancement of the shoulders and, in some cases, even rectification of the curve of the neck. Thanks to the adjustments, young people can recover the correct alignment of the spine and have a more upright posture, which favors their general good health and prevents the appearance of back problems in adulthood.
Chiropractic also helps to better manage the pressure of studies and promotes greater control of emotions, making this stage of change more bearable.
In sports, chiropractic care helps prevent injuries or accelerate their recovery, and helps to have a more harmonious and agile body, with greater physical performance.
Like children, young people often respond quickly to chiropractic adjustments. Our advice on postures or exercises can be a good complement to chiropractic care.
