Kids and Chiropractic
Is Chiropractic safe for baby or child?
With the rough and tumble of life for children from sporting injuries to complaints of headaches and neck pain, we often see children at the clinic with musculo-skeletal complaints. At Bulimba Chiropractic, we use gentle non-manipulative techniques with children under the age of 12 years such as activator method, gentle stretching and for the child under 2 years, Niki uses particular cranial work taught by Inspiral Chiropractic for infants. At your child's first appointment, Niki will spend 40 minutes discussing your child's history and assessing your child. Following this, Niki will deem if Chiropractic is suitable for your child and discuss a short treatment plan. If you child suffers with a musculo-skeletal complaint, please feel free to call Niki to discuss your child's case and she can advise if gentle chiropractic care is suitable for your child.
