Children’s Chiropractic

kids heads together At Cactus Chiropractic Lifestyle Centre, we love helping kids of all ages enjoy optimal health and flourish! That’s where chiropractic care really shines, as it plays a crucial role in a child’s health and development. It removes stress on the spine and nervous system by increasing the spinal joint’s motion range and positional awareness. Chiropractic helps improve posture and balance and prevents spinal problems from worsening as children grow.

Tackling Common Childhood Problems

Chiropractic care may benefit little ones suffering from common issues like colic and ear infections. Research shows that chiropractic adjustments can lessen colic-associated crying. Ear infections often occur from obstructed eustachian tubes, and chiropractic care can assist by facilitating drainage and decreasing inflammation, possibly lessening the number and intensity of infections.

Suitable for Every Age Group

Children of all ages, from infants to teenagers, can benefit from chiropractic care. It can remedy birth-related injuries, such as those caused by forceps or vacuum extraction. As kids learn to walk and inevitably experience stumbles and falls, chiropractic care helps maintain correct spinal alignment. Additionally, it can offset the negative impacts of poor posture due to lengthy sitting, computer usage, and other spine and nervous system straining activities.

Providing Gentle Adjustments

Paediatric chiropractic uses gentle adjustments designed to match each child’s comfort level. Techniques like spinal manipulation and mobilisation, specially developed for children, are used by chiropractors like Dr Brian Peterson. Although some children might feel slight discomfort during adjustments, it typically dissipates quickly.

Identifying the Need for Chiropractic Care

Wondering when bringing your child in for care is a good idea? Dr Brian recommends chiropractic care if your child experiences any of the following:

  • Persistent neck or back pain
  • Headaches
  • Issues with breastfeeding or latching
  • Sleeping troubles
  • Leg pains or growth pains
  • Uneven shoulders
  • Visible limping
  • Leaning to one side
  • Limited neck movement
  • Poor sleep

Regular chiropractic care may improve sleep, digestion, immune function and overall wellbeing by restoring spine and nervous system function.

Tailored Methods for Children

Dr Brian tailors his techniques for children, utilising gentle methods that exert lesser force than those used for adults. He uses the Activator instrument, trigger point therapy and other gentle techniques to provide comfortable care for children.
