How could my child benefit from seeing a Paediatric Chiropractor?
The early years of life are the most critical and important in developing motor control. Motor Control is our posture and how we move. All healthy babies are born with a genetic code, or a ‘human software’. This ‘human software’ determines how and when to roll over, crawl and eventually walk.
Children presenting with the following, may benefit from seeing us:
- Baby not rolling over
- Baby can only feed on one side
- Baby developing a wonky head shape
- Baby crawling while dragging one leg
- Bum shuffling
- Slow to roll over/ crawl/stand/walk
Children are meant to move as they grow in order to develop their bodies. Everybody knows that and yet the modern world we live in tells a different story!
Smart phone neck posture, SMS thumbs and weak spinal muscles have become far too common amongst our children.
Presentation that may benefit from chiropractic care:
- Poor Posture
- Poor Coordination
- Turning Foot in
- Knocked Knees
- Sitting in “W Position”
- Pain after sport and exercise
“Do you also see adults too?”
YES! We certainly do. Small kids and big kids alike. Chiropractic can be helpful for functional neuro-musculo and muscle-skeletal conditions.
Some common presentations are:
- low back pain
- disc bulge or annular tear
- neck pain
- tension headaches
- elbow and shoulder pain
Sometimes the body just does not feel right and while corrections made to your daily life and lifestyle will help, so may chiropractic.
A healthy functioning, strong spine and better posture are vital for just about all human behaviour.
