Paediatric Chiropractic in Joondalup

Hands around boyDid you know that chiropractic care can play a vital role in supporting your child’s healthy development from infancy through adolescence? At Biotune Chiropractic, our chiropractors aim to create a strong foundation for a healthy life by addressing misalignments and promoting proper posture.

Gentle Care for Infants

The birth process can be traumatic for infants, potentially leading to misalignments. Chiropractors assess babies and provide gentle adjustments, using no more pressure than checking a tomato for ripeness. Many young children find chiropractic care relaxing and may even sleep after an adjustment.

Supporting Healthy Development Through Chiropractic Care

Childhood is a crucial period for overall development, and chiropractic care can play a vital role in helping kids grow, thrive and achieve their milestones. As little ones experience the normal bumps and bruises of childhood, regular chiropractic visits can help ensure proper posture and a structurally sound foundation, making it easier for them to reach developmental milestones like crawling and walking.

With increasing screen time at home and school, postural issues, headaches, neck pain and back pain are becoming more common in children. Our chiropractors monitor development, motor skills and wellbeing through assessments and provide care tailored to each child’s specific needs. By addressing these issues early on, chiropractic care may help prevent unresolved problems from persisting into adulthood.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do chiropractic adjustments differ for children compared to adults?

Chiropractic adjustments for kids are much gentler than those used for adults. Our chiropractors use light fingertip pressure to deliver precise, gentle adjustments appropriate for a child’s size and development. Gentle stretches also provide relief for structural imbalances.

How often should a child see a chiropractor?

The frequency of chiropractic visits for kids depends on their individual needs and the specific condition being addressed. Initially, we may recommend more frequent visits, especially for acute issues. As the condition improves, the frequency may decrease. For general wellness, regular checkups can vary from weekly to quarterly, depending on the child’s age and health.
