My 10-year-old has arthritis!?

Most, if not at all adult spinal problems start in childhood.  Wow!  Really?  Yes.  Wear and tear spinal damage (arthritis) can take years to develop, we all know this.  This is one reason why we always want to check infants and kids, and one of the main reasons my kids have been checked and adjusted […]
