Chiropractic Te Puke NZ Chiropractic for Kids

We have seen a lot of babies and children come into the clinic over the years. Hundreds upon hundreds. The walls of our Te Puke chiropractic clinic are covered with drawings of kids that have been under care here. But you know what’s funny is that time after time the parents that are bringing their loved ones in for check-ups with us did so not because someone told them to, but because Chiropractic made sense to them, and they thought if I have had a great experience and great results with Chiropractic it can surely help my little one. You see, what’s great about the babies is that results happen very fast. This is because any shifts or misalignments in their spines haven’t been there for very long, so it only takes a light force applied in a very specific direction to correct. We have checked babies that do need adjustments and others that don’t. The birth process alone, however beautiful, is forceful enough an event it can create spinal changes. There is no placebo effect with the babies and toddlers when they get adjusted as they aren’t conscious enough to know what’s going on. Most mothers report that babies stay asleep during their corrections or enjoy a long nap or bowel movement shortly thereafter.

By having the ability to assess a child and remove interference to that’s child’s ability to heal and regulate, we have seen amazing things over the years. We have seen babies and children present with breast feeding issues, colic, teething, torticollis (wry neck), chronic ear infections, bed wetting, autism/adhd, sleep problems, and so much more. By locating areas in the spine which are interfering with the way the body is designed to function (similar to an uneven floor not allowing a door or window to function properly), we create an opportunity for the body to heal, knowing that Chiropractic isn’t a cure for any of these “diseases” or altered states. It works the majority of the time. We see it weekly in our Te Puke practice with the kids that are coming in now, not because they have problems mentioned above, but they did in the past and are now getting checked and adjusted in need be to maintain all the changes that have been made.

Specific Chiropractic Care is gentle, safe, and effective for help the little spines around function to the best of their ability. There is an ever growing amount of research proving the benefits of regular Chiropractic care regardless of age.
