Q.

Chiropractor

I''ve been told that a child should see a chiropractor at least once a year. My medical aid won''t pay for a routine consultation if there isn''t a ''real'' problem and my child has been refered by our dr.

Is this really important for my child''s health because it''s the first time I''ve heard of it but will pay if it''s important! (My children are 17months and 2 months and perfectly healthy)

There is no need for your child to be seen by a chiropractor. Both of your children are doing well and are healthy.
