Yes, we do recommend you bring your child in for a spinal exam. As a child grows and develops so does their spine. During childhood, many disruptions to the normal growth and development of the spine can occur.  Rolling over, crawling, learning to walk and run as well as playground and sports injuries can all interfere with a healthy spine and nervous system. Our Chiropractors are trained to detect normal function and mobility of the developing spine.  If a problem is detected, gentle corrections can be made to help maintain a healthy spine. Also, we love working with children. Dr. Erin Rice has extensive post graduate training in pediatrics.
