Paediatric Chiropractic at 1st Chiropractic Centres

Whether the birth process was natural or a C-section, it’s an incredibly traumatic experience for the newborn and can create unknown issues. Of course, infants can’t talk, but they can communicate what’s going on in their bodies with crying, stomach reflux, bowel issues and other symptoms.

At 1st Chiropractic Centres, we want to help babies and children feel and function their best from the very start of life. That’s why we offer a free check-up for them! We’ll let Mum and Dad know what we find and explain how chiropractic care may be able to provide relief for their little one. Often parents are relieved to learn that what their child has been suffering with is something that chiropractic can help with.

What to Expect

To ensure that your baby is relaxed, we suggest bringing something that smells of home, such as their blanket. We’ll lay this on a pillow so it feels comfortable and soothing to your little one. We only ever apply gentle Activator® adjustments or a light-touch massage technique for infants.

For older children, we have toys, colouring books and various items to keep them entertained. Starting at around age 2, we use hands-on manipulation techniques that are gentle and age-appropriate.

Our Chiropractors have special training in paediatric care and are skilled in making children feel comfortable with the process.

Every patient in our clinic receives care that is tailored specifically to their needs, so we don’t offer a one-size-fits-all approach to care. We’ll let you know what to expect regarding the frequency of visits based on your little one’s unique situation.

Home-care Advice

We’ll offer advice to help ensure your baby’s spinal health at home. A common recommendation is to put your baby down to sleep with their head turned in alternate directions rather than always facing the same direction. This encourages symmetrical neck movements.

Help Your Child Flourish

We’re passionate about helping babies and children thrive, and we’ll take the time to answer all of your questions so you know how Chiropractic may be able to benefit your little person.
