Caring For the Health of Your Children
Drs. McGovern are committed to working with children from birth forward to make sure that their nervous and immune systems are functioning optimally!
Drs. Ashley and Matthew will also monitor your children to make certain that they reach their developmental milestones in a timely and appropriate manner, because a child that doesn’t can have difficulties with academic, social, behavioral and motor learning later on in life.
At McGvoern Family Chiropractic we will perform a full neurosensory evaluation on children with delays or who have been diagnosed with a neurodevelopmental condition and implement an appropriate program so that these children can reach their maximum potential in life!
Why Do Children Need Chiropractic Care?
Vertebral Subluxations are subtle misalignments within the spine that lead to nervous system interference between the brain and the body. Spinal subluxations can occur during fetal development or during the birth process. Therefore, it is important that newborns be checked at birth by a pediatric chiropractor to ensure the baby is free of subluxations, allowing for proper communication and development.
As the child grows they are at risk to develop further subluxations from traumas such as falls while learning to walk or other repetitive injuries such as carrying heavy back packs, sitting at computers or playing sports. Maintaining a subluxation free spine throughout life is essential for optimum health!
