Why a Kid’s Chiropractor in Ballina is Beneficial to Your Child’s Development

There are numerous benefits to taking your child to our highly-trained and experienced kid’s chiropractor in Ballina. While parents can understand the benefits of chiropractic care for themselves as adults, many may not know the importance of regular visits to a children’s chiropractor for young kids, such as improved digestion and better sleep. This can also ease milestone transitions, which can cause a  lot of stress on young ones.

Children’s bodies go through many changes and stresses from the moment they are born as they play and navigate the world around them. Our exceptional chiropractic care can support their body’s development by improving spine alignment and alleviating muscle tension which can cause other health conditions or physical issues.

Other benefits of pediatric chiropractic care include minimising injuries and improving behavioural issues.

The Benefits of Taking Your Baby to a Chiropractor

Children can benefit from regular visits to a chiropractor from infancy through adulthood.

  • Your spinal health has influences on your overall health, meaning proper chiropractic care can alleviate issues other than the symptoms caused by neck and back strain. Consider booking an appointment if you have limited range of motion that makes it a challenge to pick up a laundry basket or get out of the bath.
  • Improve breastfeeding: The birthing process can take a toll on a baby’s body, resulting in difficulty latching or nursing for an extended time. Our friendly and gentle chiropractor can realign a baby’s shoulders, neck, and spine, making it more comfortable for your infant to breastfeed. Getting your baby chiropractic care may also relieve any breastfeeding stress, knowing that your child is not in any pain or discomfort.
  • Better sleep: A misaligned vertebra can cause your child discomfort or disrupt their nervous system resulting in disrupted sleep. Tailored chiropractic care from our knowledgeable professional may be the ideal solution to adjust your child’s spine and improve their sleep.

What You Should Know About Newborn Chiropractic Care

Our chiropractor for kids provides excellent care in a friendly, warm, and welcoming environment and will answer your questions during your comprehensive initial consultation. However, consider these points below before you come for your first visit.

  • Signs your child may benefit from chiropractic care: It can be difficult for parents to recognise spinal misalignment in a child. However, you can look out for a few signs that may indicate an issue. Common symptoms can include your baby’s head consistently tilting to the side, difficulty breastfeeding, disrupted sleep, and restricted neck motion on one side. Other conditions in children that may improve with chiropractic care can include growing pains, bed wetting, headaches, and sinus problems.
  • Treatment is hands-on: Spinal adjustment in babies and young children can involve light finger touches to correct any misalignment. Our chiropractor takes exceptional care of babies and uses minimal pressure to improve spinal mobility and nervous system function.
  • Chiropractic care is tailored to your child’s requirements: Your child’s condition will influence the number of adjustments and chiropractic appointments they’ll require. However, as children’s spines are generally more mobile than adults, they usually respond much faster than adults as they have not been enduring their issues for as long which allows us to restore mobility and proper function quickly.

Bring your child into our chiropractic practice, and we can answer any concerns you may have about our care.
