Does your baby cry for no apparent reason, have difficulty feeding, refuse to turn their head to the side, or protest against ‘tummy time’?

Is your older child suffering from recurrent colds or infections, not hitting their developmental milestones, or struggling with learning difficulties? These are some of the many reasons why parents choose to bring their children to see our Chiropractors.

What is a Vertebral Subluxation?

Infant and Child Care A vertebral subluxation is when joints of our spine don’t move or function correctly, this may alter/interrupt the effectiveness of signals being sent through your nervous system to your entire body. As the nervous system is the master controller of all bodily functions, if it is not operating at its optimum capacity, your body will not work as it is designed to. And can cause pain, muscle tightness, lack of flexibility and lack of mobility just to name a few. A Vertebral Subluxation can occur at any stage of your child’s life. In fact, your child’s very first subluxation may well have occurred at birth. By correcting Vertebral Subluxations and removing interference within the nervous system, symptoms of many common childhood conditions may be reduced or alleviated. We often see children who are experiencing:
  • Poor sleep
  • Flat headedness
  • Digestive disorders
  • Constipation/Diarrhoea
  • Ear infections
  • Chronic colds
  • Growing pains
  • Learning difficulties
  • Concentration problems
  • Behavioural problems

Give your child a head start in life with Chiropractic!

Infant and Child Care Our Chiropractors are clinically trained to locate subluxations and reduce or correct them via a series of spinal adjustments. We take the time to ensure that you, the parent, have a thorough understanding of your child’s condition and find the best course of treatment to optimize your child’s health. No treatment is provided to your child until both parents, where appropriate, are in agreeance. Adjustments for a child are a very gentle procedure. With no more pressure applied than you would use to test the ripeness of a tomato. Our chiropractors support the safe and effective use of evidence-informed practice with children. We recommend regular ongoing checkups to monitor spinal development as infants sit upright, begin to support their head, learn to crawl, and take their first brave steps!
