Chiropractic Care for Pain Relief in Laurel
This weekend as my one-year-old was playing on play equipment, he forgot to duck as he went under a tunnel. Of course he banged his head on the (thankfully well padded) surface and quickly sat back down! After a quick check to comfort and make sure he was ok, I marveled at how quickly he seemed to forget and ignore bumps and bruises that would probably give me headache or neckache for hours. Although young toddlers may quickly recover from minor injuries, it seems that as we get older, those minor injuries can cause mild to moderate pain that might last for a week or so! In these instances chiropractic care in Laurel can often be of help!
