Chiropractic is a highly skilled treatment, and in the case of children, very gentle. It is widely recognized as one of the safest, drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal complaints, according to the American Chiropractic Academy. In fact, after an extensive study of care for lower back problems, the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research, a federal government organization, recommended spinal adjustments as the only safe and effective form of initial professional treatment.
