A study done by Anderson-Peacock in 1996 on asymptomatic children revealed that 15.8% of children had incorrect movement (restrictions) in the joints of their neck and 40% had pelvic restrictions. This demonstrates the need for all infants and toddlers to be assessed by a chiropractor regardless of pain, as the restrictions should be resolved as soon as possible, in order to avoid any long-term changes.

We recommend a spinal-screening for your new born baby (regardless of the mode of delivery) to ensure they have correct and full movement in all of their joints. It is better to treat your before it presents with symptoms (eg. Colic). Prevention is better than cure!
