Paediatric Chiropractic in Canberra

Adjusting infantAt Canberra Spine Centre, we help our littlest patients to be comfortable and perform at their best by improving their spine and nervous system function. Chiropractors understand that a healthy spine enables a child to grow healthy and strong, helps prevent injuries, and allows their all-important nervous system to do its job properly. It’s through helping the nervous system that chiropractic care helps many children live healthier lives.

Misalignments Can Happen Early

Many subluxations or misalignments to the spine start early in life. Whether through the birth process, slips and falls as a young child, or even sitting at a desk for years as a school-aged child, may start to cause problems with the child’s health.

These problems may influence their growth, movement, posture, concentration, and overall well-being, contributing to developmental delays. By the time they become an adult, a minor issue has become a big problem. At this point they often don’t understand where their problem came from.

Prevention is about taking advantage of this opportunity to make a real difference in a child’s health for their whole life, and we’re keen to get started!

The Gentlest of Care

Our chiropractic care for babies and children is gentle and comfortable. The chiropractic techniques used in our practice typically involve gentle finger-tip pressures (the kind you could tolerate over a closed eyelid) and specific massage. The team at Canberra Spine Centre also has years of experience dealing with injuries and disorders in older children and teens, including postural problems and sporting injuries.

Our approach with a child is entirely different. There are completely different tests, completely different measures for their progress, and completely different adjustments as well, depending on the age. We use a variety of techniques on children only that are very gentle, easy, and tolerable for babies up to older kids. Children can’t wait to climb up on our table for an adjustment because it makes them feel so good!

Where possible, we highlight things that young people or parents can do at home to help,
like stretching and strengthening exercises, training activities, ergonomics, and nutrition. Parents are often surprised to see their child sleeping and eating better after an adjustment.

Caring for the Next Generation

We take our mission of caring for children very seriously. Helping them achieve optimal health and keep it for their whole life is our goal. Make an appointment today to get started.
