Supporting your child’s optimum development

Chiropractic care at the right time can prevent and ease many common childhood conditions.
Children go through many developmental changes as they grow. The nervous system is the first to develop and it controls all the other systems. It is therefore very important to have the nervous system develop at its optimum. Chiropractic can help determine if there is a misalignment of the spine, which results in irritation and poor functioning of the nervous system.

How we help

The first and most traumatic misalignment to the spine can be during the birthing process, which can put pressure on the baby’s spine and affect the nervous system. The pressure we apply in treatment is equivalent to testing the ripeness of a tomato.

The most common conditions we see in children and can help address are:

  • Trouble turning the neck to one side resulting in a flat or distorted skull shape.
  • Excessive crying or irritability if there is a spinal trigger.
  • Difficulty in rolling over that could have a spinal origin.
  • Difficulty in crawling or walking that could have a spinal origin.
  • Breastfeeding issues and uncontrolled crying, if the cause is related to a baby’s spine being misaligned.

We can also check if your child’s development is appropriate with age and other relevant milestones.

Chiropractic care should be an important part of your child’s health care plan, as it helps set the foundation for a healthy life and offers benefits through non-invasive therapy.
