Signs your Child’s Spine may not be Aligned
As a parent it is obvious to you if your child has poor posture, complains of neck or back stiffness, headaches or other aches & pains but there are many ‘silent’ signs of spinal dysfunction that can occur during your child’s developmental years that are often missed. A few very important signs and often missed signs to watch for with your child include:
They find it difficult to take a deep breath.
Their shoes wear out unevenly or one leg appears shorter than the other.
Uneven shoulder height, waistline, hips, eyes or ears.
Rotated rib cage.
A ‘winging’ shoulder blade or they appear to be leaning to the side when standing straight.
Joints that crack - either on their own or elicited by child.
Fatigue or sleep issues.
Asymmetrical movement patterns with arms & legs.
Recurring colds, fever or ear infections.
If one, or a number of these signs are present we recommend a formal spinal assessment with a Chiropractor. These signs can be indicative of a number of issues but as always, early detection & intervention can be key to improving future outcomes & minimising any impact on long-term development.
