Chiropractic for kids

Numerous studies and research have shown that paediatric chiropractic care is safe and can be highly effective in treating various conditions and promoting overall wellness in children.

The gentle techniques used by paediatric chiropractors are specifically tailored to the needs of young patients, ensuring their safety and comfort throughout the treatment process. However, it is important for parents to carefully choose a qualified and experienced chiropractor who specialises in paediatric care to ensure the best possible outcomes for their children.

At Inverclyde Chiropractic, we treat babies as young as a few days old. Newborn checks are a great opportunity to assess their little bodies after birth and check all the reflexes babies are usually born with.

If you have noticed your baby favours turning their head to one side when sleeping and at rest, or if baby is having difficulty lying on their back it would be a good idea to book in for a baby check with a paediatric chiropractor.

Treatment for the littlest ones in your life is very different to what you might expect from a Chiropractic visit. We are trained to use paediatric specific techniques, which for babies and toddlers, mostly involves gentle stretches and holds.

As kids get older, we start to see the same issues as adults with poor posture. Postural changes in kids has increased massively over the past 12 years that I have been working as a chiropractor. This is often due to increased device use. Spending extended periods of time hunched over devices can lead to back pain and other musculoskeletal issues in children. Chiropractors can work with kids to correct their posture and provide exercises and stretches to strengthen their back muscles. By addressing these issues early on, chiropractic care can significantly improve the overall well-being and comfort of both babies and kids, promoting healthier and more active lives.
