I believe chiropractic care for babies and children is especially important because their nervous system is experiencing rapid growth and development and it is important to maintain optimal communication between the brain and body for this to develop properly.

Being a mother myself, I know what a huge privilege it is to treat your child. I always endeavour to help you and your family, whether it is with chiropractic treatment, herbs, nutritional advice or just a safe space to chat honestly about parenthood.

PASSIONATE ABOUT CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR CHILDREN AND BABIES. 

WHY IS IT RECOMMENDED TO TAKE YOUR KIDS TO THE CHIROPRACTOR?

As adults, we can recognize when our bodies aren’t functioning as they should. Children and infants can also experience dysfunction within the body, and may struggle to express what the problem is. To help support babies and toddlers during these explorative years, they need to feel safe in both their internal and external environment.

Common concerns from many parents with infants include:

CHIROPRACTOR FOR CHILDREN

HOW I CATER FOR CHILDREN AT MY PRACTICE

Most parents bring their babies to see me following a referral, or because they are concerned about a particular issue, such as a traumatic birth process or because their child has had a fall. 

 

When you bring your baby or child to see me at The Adjustment Joint, you will be asked pointed questions for a thorough history. This will allow me to learn all about your baby/child and any concerns you have.

 

A physical examination will then be performed, which is tailored to your baby/child and their main issue.

 

I will then explain what I have found, what I can do to help, what appropriate treatment is involved and if any other examination or treatment is involved from other health professionals. Any proposed treatment is explained and demonstrated. Chiropractic treatments for babies and children are modified for their age, size and particular issue.

 

Treatment will only occur if the parents are comfortable to proceed and as long as there is nothing in the history or examination that warrants further examinations.

CHRIOPRACTIC TREATMENT FOR BABIES & CHILDREN

Chiropractic treatment for babies and children is very different to adult sessions because the techniques for children need to be varied to suit their spines.

A baby’s spine is very supple during the first few months of life, and so I perform very gentle mobilisations. I do not perform any chiropractic adjustments (“cracking”) on children.

Babies can be seen at any age. I have treated babies from the day they were born.
