Chiropractic Care for Children

According to two separate studies conducted in the USA, 11 – 21% of all chiropractors’ patients are children and adolescents under the age of 18. It is also estimated that 3% of all kids in the USA will visit a doctor of chiropractic at least once before reaching adulthood. In other words, chiropractic care for children is a lot more common than one may think.
