Paediatric Chiropractic at Chiro Works Bayside

child having their back adjustedAt Chiro Works Bayside, we recognise the importance of nurturing children’s health from the beginning. Our natural paediatric chiropractic care ensures your child’s growth and development occur in the healthiest way possible.

Why Do Children Need Chiropractic Care?

As children grow, their bodies go through numerous developmental stages, with the nervous system being the first to form, controlling all others. A well-functioning nervous system is vital during these critical stages.

Children often face minor traumas, from long hours in car seats to falls while learning to walk or playing sports. These seemingly minor incidents can accumulate over time, affecting their musculoskeletal health.

Correcting these issues while they are minor and the child’s structure is still easy to mould helps prevent long-term problems when they become adults.

Compassionate Care for Kids

Parents can bring their child to our office from just a few days old. Early care helps set a foundation for a lifetime of optimal health. Our techniques for newborns, infants, and young children differ significantly from those used for adults. We prioritise gentle, low-force, and low-amplitude techniques, ensuring your child’s comfort at all times.

Preparing for Your Child’s Visit

It’s always a good idea to arrive a little early to help your child become familiar with the environment. We suggest dressing them in easy-to-remove clothing, but nothing else is required. Our clinic is a child-friendly and welcoming place, with toys, colouring materials, and special toy Activators® for kids.

Our care for children uses low-force techniques, such as the Activator, and focuses on stretching, cranial work, and reducing tension. These gentle approaches ensure a positive experience for your child.

Common Reasons to Seek Care

Some of the most common reasons parents often seek our care are musculoskeletal issues, headaches, postural concerns, torticollis, plagiocephaly (flattening of the head), digestive issues, sleep problems, and breastfeeding difficulties.

Parents often ask if chiropractic care hurts children. Our doctor assures them that chiropractic should never hurt anyone, and we take extra care to ensure your child’s comfort by using only the most gentle techniques.
