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.

  • Clicking jaw. 

  • Joints that crack - either on their own or elicited by child. 

  • Fatigue or sleep issues.  

  • Stress/anxiety.

  • Poor concentration. 

  • 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.
