In Australia, chiropractors provide care to more than 30,000 paediatric patients (0 – 18 years old) every week. At Kiama Family Chiropractic we have provided gentle and safe care for thousands of children in our 30 years of practice, from newborns through to teenagers.
Chiropractic Care for children is modified depending on the age of the child and Paul has undertaken numerous hours of extra study to ensure the best techniques are available for our chiro kids and babies. Most adjustments on babies and children are very gentle and do not involve direct joint manipulations, rather we use specific low force adjustments, often with an instrument called the activator.
Many parents seek out chiropractic care for many different reasons or conditions and we do a comprehensive initial consultation with parents and child to see if chiropractic is appropriate for your child. Birth trauma, falls and accidents, poor posture, too much time on devices (see our Slouch Busters Program) and stress all have the potential to effect your child’s spine from birth and through their growing years. Chiropractic is well placed to correct these dysfunctions and improve the neuromuscular/ skeletal health of your child.
Chiropractic care is valued by many of our parents and forms part of their overall comprehensive approach to paediatric care.
Not sure if chiropractic care is for your baby or child? Paul is happy to have a chat, at no cost, to discuss your concerns and see if it’s appropriate to bring your child in for a check.
