Why or how would a chiropractor "adjust" young children, being that young children are so flexible anyway?
Health Hooey. Imho this is medical quackery at it's worst. Although some chiropractics claim to be pediatric specialists, neurologists, evidenced based medicine does not bear this out. Bony manipulation also doesn't cure allergies, autism or adhd. There is clinicial evidence that chiropractic medicine can be useful in the treatment of adult low back pain. There is some controversy w docs who care for adults.
To build a practice. I am aware of some "practice builder" CD's that were sold on line by chiropractors.They suggested that offering to adjust kids was a good way to get the family involved & have a constant supply of patients. No science, just salesmanship. Most straight chiropractors cringe at the idea that these folks are out there.
