Early and Regular Care for Children

Caring for children from birth, and even before, is vital to their healthy development. Stress starts while still in the mum’s belly. The baby feels it when she’s stressed, and birth is the ultimate stressor!

Children’s bodies are continuously growing and changing, making them susceptible to imbalances that may lead to issues later in life. At Papakura Chiropractic, we focus on paediatric chiropractic care, ensuring children grow with a foundation of good spinal health from birth. Regular adjustments as they develop keep their spine healthy, allowing them to grow and thrive.

Our Gentle Approach With Children

For our youngest practice members, the process includes a thorough intake form assessing pregnancy, birth, and developmental milestones followed by non-invasive exams and INSiGHT™ scans appropriate for the child’s age.

Our doctors perform a general health check of the child, a spinal check, and cranials as well to assess for problems like latch or breastfeeding issues, head shape or difficulty turning to one side. We also check their primitive reflexes to see if everything is present as it should be. Adjustments, if needed, are tailored to be gentle, secure, and suitable for infants and young children.

Getting Benefits Beyond What’s Seen

Chiropractic care for children extends beyond addressing acute problems. It is about ensuring that as children grow, they do so with a spine and nervous system that works as optimally as it should, giving them the best chance to develop into the best versions of themselves.

As your child goes through the various stages of development, they will experience all the bumps, bruises and falls normal to young children. Chiropractic care helps ensure proper posture and a structurally and functionally sound foundation. Crawling, walking, and other milestones become easier to attain. From cases of colic to bedwetting and behavioural issues, chiropractic care can have profoundly positive effects on a child’s overall well-being.

Achieving Successful Outcomes

Chiropractic care has produced successful outcomes for many practice members. One such practice member is a boy whom we still see for maintenance care many years later. When he was younger, he had some anger issues, which resulted in him getting in trouble at school. After a bit of care, he’s now performing well and getting certificates in school, and his mum is so grateful.
