On October 26 and 27th 2018 Dr. James Schofield attended a chiropractic educational conference in Longbranch, New Jersey. Doctors of chiropractic from the United States and Canada met to discuss various aspects of healthcare.
One topic was the treatment of children and adolescents. Many adults don’t realize that children may have health problems that chiropractic can help. It is not uncommon to find children suffering from tension, migraine and/or sinus headaches. Frequently children from juveniles to teenagers have problems with their neck and upper back due to poor posture when using technology devices like cell phones. Many children who are involved in sports at an early age can develop aches and pains of their lower back. Infants, toddlers and grade schoolers may be prone to ear aches and infections. Chiropractors are trained to evaluate spine for misalignments. Just as these conditions can occur in adults, they can also cause children to suffer. The diagnosis these types of conditions and subsequent methods of treatment for correction were discussed at the conference.
