Within that first year your baby will grow by more than 50% of it’s original size whilst their brain doubles! During this timeframe it can be stressful for your child’s musculoskeletal system due to the excessive growth and changes to the overall body in a short period of time.

What Will Our Chiropractors Do To Treat New-borns?

Our Chiropractors at The Melbourne Chiropractor are specifically trained for paediatric assessments and treatment. It is common for us to see children suffering with colic and reflux. Usually our chiropractors will use gentle techniques and finger pressures in areas to help change areas that are of concern. Adjustments are not going to be your usual chiropractic adjustments seen on adults as different techniques will be used to gently alleviate pain areas.

*If you have a child suffering from colic or reflux or may think they are suffering from changes due to their ongoing development! You can always contact us or book online with one of our paediatric specific chiropractors @ https://themelbournechiropractor.com.au/book-now
