Babies and children are precious assets to parents which is why we help to look after them. Chiropractors are trained to look at the special needs of these little people so that they can have the best possible opportunity for growth and development.
The birth process can be a traumatic experience which can leave stresses and strains for babies and which may persist through life. Everyday knocks and bumps that children encounter, can also create disturbances that can often be helped with chiropractic care.
We also look after mothers during pregnancy and after the birth of their baby we encourage them to bring the baby in when we see the mother for her post delivery chiropractic check. We try to ensure that the baby has the best possible start in life.
Chiropractic for babies and children often also involves using craniopathy or craniosacral therapy, a particularly gentle treatment involving the head. McTimoney chiropractic is a whole body approach that is also very gentle. We use both these methods to help babies and children reach their full developmental potential so that they have the best opportunity to grow into healthy active adults.
We are always happy to have a chat about any worries a parent may have regarding their childrens’ wellbeing so if you would like further information, please give us a call.
