We were hit in an accident. My 18 month old was doing fine overall. Chiropractor said he has some tender spots. Should we get him fixed at this age?

In brief: Depends on you

In my own experience of 3+ decades of pediatric practice I have never found any value in chiropractic care for kids.
I do occasionally get testimonials from happy parents but no evidence based studies.If you're a chiro person do what you feel is right.The sessions may comfort you & your child will see your response & relax. Simple followup with your regular doctor is all i would do for my kid.

In brief: I don't think so

Before subjecting your child to numerous adjustments, i would seek a second opinion.
Consult a local pediatric orthopaedist who will do a comprehensive exam that may include x-rays.
