Care for Kids
No matter how old a child is they have a spine, muscles, ligaments and various other joints and despite their youthful age they can still pick up injuries or have dysfunctions just like us adults. Chiropractors fully understand that children lives regularly consist of falling when trying to walk, sports traumas, incredibly heavy backpacks, long hours of homework/study and even long hours of looking at mobile phones. All of this can contribute and have an impact on the health of our kids.
To make sure children grow and develop into the adults they are designed to be Chiropractors know how to diagnose, assess and treat children’s spines of all ages. Here at PureChiro our Chiropractor has gone one step further and trained under the guidance of internationally recognised Paediatric Chiropractor Steve Williams and has completed his courses on Chiropractic Paediatric care.
If you wish for your children to be checked by a Chiropractor or have any
further questions regarding this please feel free to contact us.
"Before this (Chiropractic care) I couldn't do anything, I couldn't pick my kids up. I couldn't even walk at one point. It feels like I can carry on with my life now."
Does Chiropractic care hurt?The majority of patients in our care have reported they feel a relief after having a chiropractic adjustment.
If I go to a Chiropractor, will I have to go for the rest of my life?"After ‘corrective care’ comes ‘maintenance care’ - this is a check-up of your spine every so often, which is like having a service check done on your car to ensure continued spinal health.
If I am under Chiropractic care, do I still need to take my pain medication?"The guidance of your medication is to be advised and managed by the care provider who prescribed this medication. However, evidence shows that chiropractic care commonly provides pain relief for many patients to the extent that they do not need as frequent pain medication.
I 'POP' my own back so why do I need to see a Chiropractor?Its highly advised that you don't try to forcefully manipulate your own spine. Chiropractors have trained for many years to specifically and gently adjust joints in the right manner, location and direction. It is very difficult to precisely and safely do this to yourself.
From what age can a patient receive Chiropractic care?A patient may receive Chiropractic care from any age. The Doctor of Chiropractic will change the dynamics of how they treat depending on age and condition and will always do this with the patient’s safety and comfort in mind.
Is Chiropractic care safe in pregnancy?Chiropractic care is safe in pregnancy and there are various techniques and procedures that the Chiropractor will have learnt to ensure this is the case.
Is treatment over once my baby is born?It is recommended for you to have a postpartum Chiropractic re-evaluation a few weeks following the birth of your child due to the ligamental changes and repositioning of the body.
How many treatments do I require?The number of treatments depends on a patient’s individual case. After the consultation and examination, the chiropractor will analyse and develop a treatment plan that is specific to your case. There will be an end date for your corrective care and the chiropractor will go through this plan with you at the report of findings stage.
