Children

Despite a child’s body being flexible and mobile, stress or injury can impact the function of their spine resulting in undue tension and subluxation.

(Subluxation refers to vertebrae and other bones or joints that are stiff or misaligned, or causing interference to your child’s nervous system.) Subluxations can impair health without obvious symptoms, but there are tell-tale signs that might indicate your child’s spine or nervous system is compromised: Sleep disorders, colic and irritability, difficulties with breastfeeding, recurring ear aches and other infections, bedwetting, learning and attention difficulties, to favouring one side of their neck, and poor posture or limited joint movement. 

Your child’s nervous system (brain, spinal cord and nerves) controls everything from breathing and digesting, to running, playing, thinking and feeling. Interference can impair your child’s ability to function at their best. 

Bayview Chiropractic Clinic specialises in therapy treatment involving an extensive range of children's chiropractic conditions: Growing pains, lower back ache and pain, sore back or neck, and back discomfort, stiff neck, headaches, shoulder pain, posture adjustment, alignment and realignment of the spine, general/localised stiffness, lumbar pain, muscle spasm(s), pinched nerve, sciatica pain and problems, disc injuries and slip disc.
