Children need their bodies to be well aligned, able to recover from the bumps and strains of life in the backyard or playground just as much as adults.

Australian kids are also sitting down for increasingly long periods. Study and entertainment activities cause many children to crane their necks to look at a screen for long periods, or to simply be seated for prolonged periods – placing stresses on young bodies.

In addition, a number of common childhood ailments may be alleviated with chiropractic treatment and as word spreads about the benefits of chiropractic care, more families are incorporating chiropractic care in a well-rounded family health care plan.

Chiropractors can also provide advice for kids at all ages and stages, like development, posture, exercises, or backpacks, ergonomics and using electronic devices.

Chiropractic adjustments tailored for children

After consulting you and your child about your child’s health history, chiropractors will determine the best treatments for your child.

Chiropractors provide gentle and effective therapy through chiropractic adjustments. Each adjustment is specifically tailored to the child's age, size and unique spinal characteristics. Most children enjoy the experience and look forward to their chiropractic adjustment. If you have any concerns about chiropractic adjustments, discuss them during the consultation and ask for a demonstration of the prescribed treatment.

Just like regular check-ups with the GP or dentist, chiropractic check-ups for children can be a valued part of your child’s health care. Chiropractic is more than merely fixing your child's spine. Chiropractic care helps maintain vital communication between your child's brain and body.

A number of chiropractors complete additional qualifications in Chiropractic Paediatrics - to find one near you, please contact the Victorian branch of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia on 03 9328 4699 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
