If a baby was born with a deformed spine or the spine got deformed due to a fall, or is asthmatic, or has some other condition, it can go to a chiropractor. Older children can be injured in sports or during play, and they can benefit from chiropractic treatment.

How Does A Chiropractor Adjust A Baby?
