Paediatric Chiropractic Care

”Birth is the biggest trauma in one’s life”. This can be especially traumatic for the fetus who is in breech (baby in bottom down or transverse position) and those who need intervention during birth. All this can contribute to spinal misalignment and muscle imbalance in our newborn.

There are some common signs and symptoms we see in newborn and infant which chiropractic treatment may help:

(Left: Breech position; Right: Normal position)

  • Unsettling lying on his/her back
  • Legs flexed and struggle to lie flat
  • Struggle with head rotation to one side or other
  • Screaming and unsettling crying
  • Difficulty in breastfeeding
  • Colic
  • Constipation
  • Sleeping problems
  • Physical developmental delays
  • Toddlers (toe walking)
