Chiropractors are trained to assess an adjust the spines of children at all ages and stages of development. If you choose to bring your children into Body In Balance Chiropractic your Chiropractor will begin with a detailed health history from their time in the womb through to the current day.
Assessment of your child will include primitive reflexes, developmental milestones, spinal structure and function and appropriate orthopaedic and neurological tests.
Chiropractors do five years of university training and are qualified to assess and manage children and babies at all ages and stages of development. We use gentle techniques that are specifically designed for children and babies.
Techniques are adapted for a child’s age, body size, developmental stage and personal preference. They are gentle and specifically designed for children. We DO NOT crack, crunch or perform heavy manual adjustments on babies! In fact the amount of pressure required to adjust a newborn is as much pressure as you can tolerate on your eye ball – not much!
We completely understand that making the decision to bring your child to the chiropractor can be confronting for some people. Particularly if your understanding of chiropractic has been in relation back pain and headaches in adults. We get this! So we do take the time to discuss your concerns, and we do take the time to assess your child thoroughly, and we do take the time to discuss your options BEFORE any chiropractic care is given.
