Chiro for Kids

How are you caring for your child’s spine?

Every parent wants to give their child the opportunity to grow, develop and reach their full potential. However, physical trauma and hereditary problems of the spine and nervous system can interfere with this process.

Chiro for babies

Do you know that many babies are injured as a result of the birthing process?  

Problems in the spine occur frequently from birth. The forces and stresses of birth, especially if intervention such as forceps or suction is used, can result in significant trauma to the spine. In fact, Dr Towbin (Harvard University Pathologist) states that it takes 90-140 pounds of pulling pressure to produce spinal damage and that it is not uncommon for this to occur in a normal delivery process.

If your baby is suffering from a spinal misalignment here are some signs to watch out for:

– favouring one breast during feeding
– abnormal posture such as head tilting to one side
– noticeable curvature to the right or the left during tummy time
– abnormal amount of irritability and crying.

Chiro for children

Did you know research shows that 48% of children land on their head in their first year of life?

Simple events such as falls, tumbles or bumps to the head can cause trauma in kids’ spines and nervous systems. Hereditary problems of the spine can also interfere with the natural development of kids’ bodies.

We highly encourage children to have their spine assessed if they have had a significant trauma, if they are complaining of pain or if you notice a significant postural imbalance.

Chiro for teenagers

Do you want your child to grow up and develop the same spinal problems that you have as an adult?

There are no guarantees that your child’s spine will develop properly, especially if there is a history of spinal problems in your family. Previously, spinal degeneration was viewed as a result of ageing and ‘wear and tear’. However, research has recently revealed that there is also a substantial influence of heredity on spinal degeneration.

Spinal misalignment is also one of the most common causes of headaches and migraines, especially in teenagers.
