Chiropractic treatment for children, babies and during pregnancy

A specialised area of chiropractic treatment that Walkley Chiropractic Clinic has great experience with is providing chiropractic treatment for children, babies and during pregnancy.

A children’s chiropractor or paediatric chiropractor can help with a number of complaints that may be affecting your child or baby.

At Walkley Chiropractic Clinic, every patient we see, young or old, receives treatment based on the sound foundations of taking a full patient history delivering evidence-based treatments and therapies to aid recovery. In addition, we may develop a programme of rehabilitation exercises to help with recovery and prevent recurring problems.

So how can Walkley Chiropractic Clinic help with your family?

The spinal cord is the first part of the body to form in the womb and it is our main nerve route super highway. Kinks, compressions and pressure can lead to all sorts of distortions which may result in symptoms that you wouldn’t necessarily associate with the nervous system and the spine, and yet gentle manipulation and chiropractic care can lead to a significant improvement in symptoms.

Typical symptoms a chiropractor may treat

Chiropractic treatment can promote healthy brain and nerve development. Our nervous system controls everything from breathing, digestion, thinking, our senses and so on. Chiropractic care and gentle manipulation to release any distortions can make babies and children more settled and less aggravated by the symptoms they were once feeling.

Chiropractic care encourages good spinal posture which leads to good posture habits early in life. This is especially important now, when the use of computers and other devices have the potential to cause many and varied postural problems.

Help with sleeping problems. Discomfort can affect sleeping patterns. A properly-aligned spine can help your child’s or baby’s body relax and encourage a restful night’s sleep.
