Speak to an experienced Pediatric Chiropractor in Melbourne today

You might have just found out you’re pregnant and if so congratulations. Perhaps you’re soon to deliver or have recently given birth and are looking for a Pediatric Chiropractor in Melbourne. Or maybe you’re reading this to learn more about why our Chiropractors are Melbourne’s go-to team for your child or baby chiropractic needs. Chiropractors have been assessing, managing & preventing pediatric health problems for many decades through a variety of gentle & safe techniques.

You may not be aware why it is important for Chiropractor’s to assess young babies? Simply put, the spine of a newborn is placed under an enormous amount of stress and strain during the delivery process, combine this with the potential use of forceps, vacuum extractors and other equipment it can begin the process of spinal misalignment and ultimately degeneration from a young age. Our Melbourne Chiropractors see many mothers bring their newborn, infant or children for a wellbeing check-up to ensure their child’s spine is developing normally. While we also have parents bring their little one in if they’re suffering one of the many pediatric problems or health conditions.

Why kids are taken to Pediatric Chiropractors?

  •  Asymmetrical head & neck movementChiropractic-11
  •  Pelvis misalignment
  •  Poor posture
  •  Childhood migraines
  •  Torticollis

The Chiropractic premise, like that of other natural allied health professions (e.g. Accupuncture, Psychology and Naturopathy) are not accepted by some members of the medical community. This does not mean these therapies should be overlooked or seen as inferior compared  to other mainstream treatments. While scientific research into the effectiveness of chiropractic and other natural therapies is available, the chiropractic profession recognises it is ‘limited’ and more needs to be undertaken. As  funding and support is available we are confident more support and research will be forthcoming.

It is also important to understand Chiropractors do not claim to  treat specifically ‘non-musculo-skeletal’ conditions such as: colic, ear infections, behavioral conditions such as ADD and ADHD, bed wetting, Asthma. However like all treatments, Chiropractic may not be able to help everyone’s pains and symptoms. Therefore each case needs to be assessed individually. Should you have any questions about this or chiropractic as-a-whole call or email one of our team members today.

International Chiropractic Pediatric Association

As your child grows & develops, firstly sitting, then crawling & walking they will experience many falls, bumps, knocks & trauma’s that can ultimately interfere with proper spinal and nervous system development. Because of this, your child should be periodically assessed by a Pediatric Chiropractor in Melbourne.

We believe an excellent Pediatric or Children’s Chiropractor should offer as many of the following key characteristics as possible:

1. A qualified Chiropractor with years of professional experience

  • Our Chiropractors have a great reputation with Maternity health centres & parents in the Melbourne and surrounding areas for their caring, patient centred Chiropractic care. Dr. Robbie Hunt, Dr. James Allen, Dr. Peter Vrakatselis & Dr Adam Curwood have combined clinical practice experience of more then 20 years – having worked with children and babies for a range of reasons and conditions. Dr. Robbie Hunt has gained experience training at practices around Australia and abroad that specifically focus only on “Child Chiropractic” – this experience gave Robbie many invaluable experiences and insights that he uses in his practices today.

2. A child-friendly practice

  • Over the years we have developed a wide network with health professionals in Melbourne who refer patients to us. These include maternity wards at major hospitals, GP’s, other chiros and mother’s groups among others.

3. Trusted chiropractors who receive referrals from other health professionals

  • At our practice we see many kids so have set up a kids waiting area that is fun and safe for kids.
