Paediatric Care in Rotorua

Why Should My Child See a Chiropractor?

As a parent, you want your child to be as healthy as possible. That includes having a healthy nervous system that’s working well. The birth process is traumatic for infants, so they should be seen as soon as possible after birth.

The chiropractor assesses the baby for any subluxations and relieves them with an extremely gentle touch. Children need to continue care during their first year as their spine grows and bones fuse together.

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 foundation that is structurally and functionally sound. Crawling, walking and other milestones become easier to attain.

When you bring your baby to our office, our caring staff will show you around. You’ll see the changing station and other support we have for our mums and their babies. Once you sit down with your doctor, they’ll talk to you about any issues with the baby and how chiropractic may help.

With the parent’s permission, the doctor will do a very gentle, precise adjustment of the spine. The adjustment is safe and very fast; the amount of pressure is no more than what you would use to touch an eyeball.

We want older children to have an enjoyable experience. We’ll work with their level of comfort. Some may want to lie on the table, but we can also do the adjustment while Mum holds them.

Starting chiropractic care when your child is young provides a strong foundation for a healthy life. They learn about good health and wellness habits, which can help prevent illness later in life.

When injuries happen, chiropractic can correct any subluxations that may occur. Regular adjustments may speed up the rehabilitation process and restore proper function faster. Chiropractic can help with colic, sleep issues, latch problems, and much more.
