Pediatric Chiropractic in Melbourne

Mom holding babys feetChildren and adults have very different bodies, meaning they require varying versions of chiropractic care. While children are often hard on their small frames, they are also resilient. This resiliency tends to result in underlying damage.

Christie Chiropractic believes in the importance of natural health in children. Dr. Christie is committed to helping aid children stay healthy and do what they love.

How Young Is Too Young?

We provide pediatric chiropractic care to infants and children alike. Infant chiropractic care is completely different than the care we offer adult patients. Depending on the age of the child, there is no popping or manual adjustment movements. We use gentle touch, applying no more pressure than you would apply to an eyeball.

Contrary to popular belief chiropractic can greatly benefit infants, even those that are only hours old. Symptoms from the trauma they experience as their little bodies travel through the birth canal as well as the strain that nursing places on their necks can be addressed through specialized care. Earlier detection often leads to healthier development.

Common Benefits

Christie Chiropractic suggests wellness adjustments for kids unless another prominent health care issue is present. In fact, chiropractic care can be more beneficial than some prescribed medication. For example, adjustments have been proven to offer greater relief for ear infections than commonly-administered antibiotics.

Common symptoms treated with chiropractic care in children include:

  • Musculoskeletal issues
  • Ear infections
  • Colic
  • Scoliosis
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Headaches
  • Bedwetting
  • Growing pains
  • ADHA
  • Breast feeding issues
