Chiropractic Treatments For Babies

Country Chiropractor Leongatha Offers  Chiropractic Care for Infants.

Like children babies have their own unique health issues and are growing and developing, especially their nervous system, at an even greater rate. They have also spent nine months in utero then gone through the birthing process which can be just as traumatic for them as it is for Mum. They also have a limited understanding of the world around them including pain and discomfort. 

Chiropractic paediatric care of babies is very different to that of chiropractic care of adults. Many of the examinations done are unique to babies and focus on development, particularly of the nervous system. Chiropractic care of babies is also very different to that of adults. Very gentle techniques such as cranial work are utilized along with parental advice in areas such as feeding and gentle stretches.

Some conditions that may be helped through Chiropractic Care for Babies include


  • Minor birthing injuries such as torticollis

  • Bowel dysfunction such as constipation

  • Irritability including excessive crying

  • Feeding issues

  • Problems sleeping

Sometimes problems that require specialist treatment such as hip dislocation are picked up during a paediatric chiropractic examination and an appropriate referral will be made. Chiropractic care for infants may also be used in conjunction with regular baby healthcare as provided by Maternal and Child Health Nurses, GPs and Paediatricians.
