Yes, children can benefit from chiropractic care. Children are very physically active and experience many types of falls and blows from activities of daily living as well as from participating in sports. Injuries such as these may cause many symptoms including back and neck pain, stiffness, soreness or discomfort. Chiropractic care is always adapted to the individual patient. In the case of children, it is very gentle. Dr. Sklar has been treating his own son with chiropractic care for over 26 years from 6 weeks old. His son is very healthy, active and pain free. Additionally, his son has never had an ear infection nor has he ever needed to be prescribed anti-biotics.
