Chiropractic care for children of all ages is gentle and effective. We use paediatric specific techniques, which require little more force than that required to test the ripeness of a tomato. Tension in children may result from physical, chemical and emotional stressors, such as bad posture, prolonged postures, sleeping on our stomachs, knocks and falls, poor food choices, dehydration, exposure to chemicals and toxins, and stress and anxiety
At Bay Family Chiropractic we are passionate about ensuring your child has every opportunity to develop, grow and play to their full potential. Brain development and nervous system function make up an essential part of every child’s care at our office.
Adjustments are generally an enjoyable experience, and we often find siblings arguing over who is having their adjustment first!
Many parents routinely bring their newborn children in for chiropractic assessments.
The birth process, as well as the nine months of development in utero, can cause stress to a newborn’s spine and nervous system. This tension can result in a range of different symptoms, from favouring one side of the neck (creating a ‘flat spot’) to irritability and feeding difficulties.
