Chiropractors are the only doctors who have extensive training in spinal conditions and posture and how that affects health.  By having your child checked you can make sure they are growing properly and prevent future problems.  This is especially important for scoliosis.  Only a CBP doctor has the ability to recognize early signs of scoliosis and provide proper care and management.  Unfortunately, scoliosis exams done in school are not valid and are often performed when a child is almost done growing which makes it harder to correct.
