Chiropractic For Children
We believe that chiropractic offers a gentle, effective and drug free approach to children’s health care. There is a gap in health services available to our little patients and their families; this gap encompasses babies and children who don’t align with the medical model of being acutely unwell, yet repeatedly present to medical practitioners with issues causing parental concern. Often the cause of these issues remains a mystery, even after vigorous testing, and the diagnosis frequently boils down to “first time parent” or “anxious mum” or simply “getting used to daycare.”
Like adults can be hindered by an interruption to the brain-body connection, children can be equally, if not more, susceptible to these effects and may need their spines checked to ensure optimal development. The spine of an infant or growing child is susceptible for many reasons depending on their age, including the trauma of labour and delivery, knocks and falls from copious rough-and-tumble incidents, spectacularly unusual sleep positions, sporting endeavors, heavy school bags, increased screen time and emotional stress. The list is endless, however because children have such a great adaptive capacity these problems are often brushed off as “just a phase” or “growing pains.”
Reasons Children Should See a Chiropractor?
- To enhance the child’s overall wellbeing.
- To alleviate any growing pains and aches.
- To help with gait (walking) problems.
- Help with excess crying.
- Childhood Headaches, Neck pain, Back pain.
Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Pregnancy is a very special time when health and well-being is of great importance to you and the child developing within. During this time there are many demands on your body and hence both your spine and nervous system are under greater pressure. As the baby grows, your body’s biomechanics must constantly adapt and unfortunately this is no easy task! It can cause poor movement patterns to develop, which can ultimately detract from what should be an exciting and positive pregnancy experience.
