CE: 2 hours
Rated 4.7 out of 5.0 based on 1495 reviews

Course Summary

Chiropractic treatment has become more common as a complementary and alternative form of holistic care in the pediatric population. Children who sustain injuries or those born with hereditary spinal conditions can benefit from specific spinal treatments by a trained chiropractor. Infants have also been treated for conditions germane to the birthing process that can lead to subsequent discomfort and crying. More research is needed to evaluate the role of chiropractic care for musculoskeletal dysfunctions in children of all ages.
