Paediatric Chiropractic Care

Nurturing Growing Spines and Developing Brains

At Tamar Chiropractic, we understand that a child’s spine and nervous system require focused chiropractic care as they grow and develop. That’s why Dr Michelle (Chiropractor) has invested in extensive postgraduate pediatric training, including a 3-year certification program through the International Chiropractors Association (ICA). With this advanced credential, our team provides tailored techniques to guide optimal health from birth through childhood.

Let’s take a look at how our gentle care may help kids of all ages:

calm child adjustment

Newborns & Infants

From day one, we use incredibly gentle fingertip adjustments to address issues like neck tightness, discomfort while lying, or irritability arising from the birth process. Checking for active/inhibited primitive reflexes also allows us to identify and support proper brain-body communication and development.

Babies & Toddlers

As little ones start moving more, we can detect and address restrictions or imbalances causing difficulties with milestones like rolling over, crawling or walking. Chiropractic care supports proper neuromuscular coordination.

Growing Children

The elementary years bring increased sports, heavy backpacks, excessive device time and postural distortions like scoliosis. We focus on optimising mobility, core strength and healthy movement patterns.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is chiropractic care safe for children?

We use age-appropriate, low-force techniques precisely adapted for your child’s stage of development to ensure they are comfortable and protected.

When should I start bringing my child for chiropractic care?

Many parents start as early as a few days old to check for any issues from the birth process. However, care can begin at any age when particular needs or developmental delays arise.

What are some signs my child may need an assessment?

Signs can include frequent crying/irritability, asymmetries or favoring one side, delays with milestones, poor posture or gait, growing pains or scoliosis. If you have any concerns, an evaluation is wise.
