This week we’ll be talking all about how Chiropractic can be great for kids. At TWCC, we treat patients of all ages – our youngest is just a few days old, and our oldest patient is in their 90s!
When it comes to children, we treat them a little differently to adults. Chiropractic focuses on diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, with special emphasis on the spine. We have the same focus when seeing children, but also look at the cranial (skull) system and child development.
Some of the reasons parents bring their children in to see us include:
✨ Their baby isn’t sleeping well
✨ They are generally unhappy or uncomfortable. This is commonly recognised when the baby keep throwing themselves back or doesn’t like being put on their back or front
✨ Their infant doesn’t hit their developmental milestone
✨ Children having headaches or migraines
✨ Parents noticing that one shoulder is lower than the other or they have a head tilt
✨ The child slouches too much when sitting and generally has poor posture
✨ They don’t coordinate or move their body symmetrically
✨ Their child picks ups sports injuries
✨ They complain of having muscular aches and pains
✨ They have sustained an injury from a one off trauma
