This can set the stage for scoliosis, “growing pains”, and a weakened immune system.
The vertebrae that protect the spinal cord can easily become misaligned during the normal slips and falls that occur while a child learns to walk. Delicate nerve tissue can be damaged, lost muscle tone can weaken the important support of the spine, and disc and soft tissue can swell and become inflamed.
