Like adults can be hindered by an interruption to the brain-body connection, children can be equally, if not more, susceptible to these effects and may need their spines checked to ensure optimal development. The spine of an infant or growing child is susceptible for many reasons depending on their age, including the trauma of labour and delivery, knocks and falls from copious rough-and-tumble incidents, spectacularly unusual sleep positions, sporting endeavors, heavy school bags, increased screen time and emotional stress. The list is endless, however because children have such a great adaptive capacity these problems are often brushed off as “just a phase” or “growing pains.”
