Chiropractic care for children has shown to be highly effective in addressing a wide range of conditions, including colic, conditions affecting the spine, bed-wetting, sports injuries, scoliosis, neurodivergence, ear infections, and sleep disturbances. Through gentle adjustments, chiropractic improves nervous system function, alleviates discomfort, and enhances overall health.

When is the best age to start?

Today! It is always a good day to get your child’s spine checked. Birth, as natural and part of the human experience as it is, can be traumatic for both the mother and the baby. It is perfectly safe for infants and young children to see a chiropractor. In fact, infants can benefit greatly from the care of our paediatric-trained chiropractor for a full health assessment ranging from spinal alignment, movement, primitive reflexes and assessment for tongue ties. As children grow up, regular visits to the chiropractor are important. If you notice your child is expressing discomfort, avoids certain activities, or is displaying poor posture, that is a sign that you should take them to see a chiropractor.
