At Life Balance Adjustments, we never hang babies upside down (yes, unfortunately one chiro did that!), or use the old-fashioned, stereotypical twist and crack techniques that are commonly associated with adult Chiropractic treatments. Due to the fact that infants’ delicate spines haven’t fully developed, they cannot simply be treated as little adults, they have unique needs that require a very individualised form of clinical assessment and treatment. Once the area that requires treatment has been determined, a very specific, yet very gentle treatment is applied to the area, not more pressure than can be tolerated on your closed eyeball. Most commonly with newborns and infants, we find that the pelvis is the area that requires an adjustment, and we feel that this is the result of being in such a confined space in utero and, of course, the birth process itself. Unfortunately, babies find it a little more difficult to notify us when they are uncomfortable. Signs to look out for include; feeding difficulties (one sided or both), holding head to one side, arching their backs, pulling their knees up, excessive crying, waking up crying, crying during tummy time, or being unhappy to ride in the car seat, just to name a few. With over 18 years of clinical experience treating infants, you can rest assured that your precious little child is in safe hands. Your child will receive a comprehensive assessment and treatment, giving you the peace of mind to enjoy watching your precious little child move through their developmental milestones and into adulthood, to the absolute best of their ability.
