The treatment is a natural, drug-free treatment that is safe and effective for the whole family including babies and children.
We have treated children in our clinics since 1991 with great results.
But in all fairness I was not truly aware of the problems that a child can have from the day they are born, both from the way they are cooped up in the womb and also the trauma they sustain from the normal birthing process, until my daughter was born.
She has received treatment from the day she was born and has been a very contented baby. She had a very uneventful birth, but still had problems in her neck, mid and lower back.
Chiropractic treatment can benefit people of all ages, including small children and pregnant women.
Pregnancy can cause uncomfortable effects, including changes in posture due to weight gain that cause pain in your back, hips, groin and legs. Postural changes may also influence the ligaments and muscles attached to the pelvis and in turn the positioning of the uterus and birth canal.
Although a natural process, birth is sometimes traumatic for both mother and baby and chiropractic can help you and your baby recover.
As children grow, we can help not only with the strains caused by the rough and tumble of life but also with some of the symptoms that children can suffer in their first years.
Chiropractic is a natural, drug-free treatment and is effective for the whole family.
Although back and neck pain is not considered common childhood disorders, they should always be thoroughly investigated. Spinal problems in children can be due to many reasons and can be categorised by age groups and developmental milestones.
The diagnosis and treatment of spinal problems in children is a specialised task and should be undertaken with great care.
Symptoms of back and neck pain in infants and young children can sometimes be difficult to understand due to the inability for children to communicate effectively and some symptoms may not appear to relate specifically to spinal problems.
Problems can develop within your child’s spine during birth or at other times during childhood from general bumps and knocks when your child learn how to crawl and walk, and in later in life from falls, accidents and carrying heavy school bags. These problems can lead to various pains, which normally respond very well to chiropractic tretment:
Other problems that sometimes present to chiropractors where some of the symptoms can be helped are:
Early assessment of your child may help to prevent some of the above symptoms and ease symptoms of the above conditions.
The treatment for babies and young children is modified using a slight pressure (sustained release) most commonly rather than the manipulative technique used on adults. It is safe, gentle and effective.
Do not forget that children have genuine problems. As a parent I know that sometimes they say things to get attention.
But a good way to ascertain if they are telling the truth is to ask them to point at the pain. If they are consistent, assume that they are telling the truth.
Sometimes children do not complain if they are uncomfortable. They might just not want to participate in physical activities as a result and give other excuses.
I am very fortunate to work with a group of chiropractors that are very conscientious and skilled.
Many parents have brought their children for treatments for various conditions and if we can't help we will tell you.
