How Chiropractic Adjustment Can Help with Growing Pains

Growing Pains - Chiropractic Care For Kids - Dr. Shane Silver Growing pains affect just about everybody between the ages of around 11 and 14, and while many people just write them off as a part of growing up, there's no denying how painful they can get. As their name implies, growing pains seem to be caused by growth during adolescence, although some experts claim that they're caused by minor injuries to the spine when children play. The injuries seem minor, but they can cause minor aches and pains in someone who is still growing. Most of these pains are felt in the arms and legs, but some children do feel pain in their backs, which fits with the back injury theories.
