Paediatric Care

Sunday 19th, November

 

Special care is given to paediatric (newborn and up) patients suffering from: birth trauma, colic, restlessness, recurring ear infections, Plagiocephaly, (crooked skull), scoliosis, torticollis and many other conditions.

 

The first thing I will do is to conduct a thorough history of your child’s health and any complaints that you or the child has.  This is followed by a complete  examination of the child’s spine where I will use gentle, specific skills to find the source of the problem.  Years of experience makes it possible to detect spinal mis-alignments with a very light touch. With babies, I use their movement and squirming to my advantage to detect mis-alignments.  I will review the condition with you prior to commencing care.

Treatment by a chiropractor is called "spinal adjustment". Spinal adjustments for infants and young children involve very light fingertip pressure to correct their spinal misalignments. This is usually sufficient to restore the mobility to spinal joints which have become locked and are causing interference to the normal nervous system function. A demonstration can be performed on the parents wrist. Babies/children usually respond very quickly. It is not uncommon for parents to see a difference with the child after the first visit, but please be prepared to allow 2-3 visits for a substantial change.

 

A recent study done by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) in the United States, Canada, and Europe showed that only a few children (out of more than 10,000 visits) experienced minor discomfort and fussiness. The remaining children in the study had no adverse reactions to the adjustment. This data tells us that chiropractic care for children may be one of the safest forms of health care available
