Care For All Ages
At CHIRO CARE for KIDS we aim to provide the highest possible quality of care to our patients.
We aim to restore normal physiological balance though gentle, specific adjustments to the spine and related muscles and joints.
We take particularly interest in chiropractic treatment for babies and children, and hold additional postgraduate qualifications in chiropractic paediatric, as well as 25 years experience of working with children.
Paediatric Chiropractic for babies
The way a normal, healthy baby learns to hold her head, roll over, crawl and eventually walk is common for all of us. In our DNA is ‘human software’ for movement. We call this ‘posture’ and ‘motor control’.
While normal development has considerable variation, even amongst siblings, it follows a pattern. Babies don’t choose to: “sleep with the head turned to the left all the time” or “not crawl”. The lack of normal action is because they can’t do normal.
We take a detailed history and perform a thorough examination to rule out pathology or any structural deformity. If such is determined, we refer the baby to the family GP, paediatrician or whoever appropriate.
The following presentations may benefit from chiropractic care:
- Torticollis, or wry neck.
- Can’t turn to feed to one side.
- Sleeps with the head to same side.
- Head/ cranial deformity.
- Doesn’t roll over in time.
- Doesn’t crawl in time.
- Crawls while dragging one leg.
