Answer:
Chiropractic adjustments are safe for patients of all ages. Obviously a different technique will be used on an eighty-five year old woman with osteoporosis than the technique use when treating a twenty year old college football player.

The benefits of chiropractic care for children have become increasingly evident as the number of children receiving chiropractic care continues to rise. Chiropractic research has overwhelmingly shown the benefit of chiropractic care for children. 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. It is a highly skilled treatment, and in the case of children, very gentle.

Children are little healing machines, given the correct nutrition and proper, timely health care, they have a huge ability to heal themselves.  There is so much going on in their small bodies and the growth rate is so phenomenal that the chiropractor’s job is merely to align the spine and joints properly to allow for full expression of their nervous system and then get out of the way.

  1. America’s healthcare-system-induced deaths are the third leading cause of the death in the U.S., after heart disease and cancer.According to several research studies in the last decade, a total of 225,000 Americans per year have died as a result of their medical treatments:
    • 12,000 deaths per year due to unnecessary surgery
    • 7000 deaths per year due to medication errors in hospitals
    • 20,000 deaths per year due to other errors in hospitals
    • 80,000 deaths per year due to infections in hospitals
    • 106,000 deaths per year due to negative effects of drugs

    Fortunately there are natural alternatives that are safe, and without the life-threatening side effects. First among these is Chiropractic, the largest drug-free, natural healing profession in the United States.
