Chiropractic Care for Children and Adolescents

Chiropractic Care for Children and Adolescents

At The Chiropractic Domain we use the Well-Kids program to thoroughly and examine children and adolescents. Through our thorough assessment techniques our chiropractors check for normal musculoskeletal function and development, for example they identify if primitive reflexes have been integrated, measure a child’s ability to reach milestones and how their lifestyles may be impacting their health.

The Well-Kids program allows integrated family health not just by speaking to parents, but also involving your children in their own health journey.

By thoroughly assessing your child/teenager we aim to come to understand the cause of symptoms. Some musculoskeletal symptoms may be dismissed as “growing pains”, leading to ongoing pain and missing school, sports and fun! At The Chiropractic Domain we take our role of assessing children using appropriate methods and diagnostics tools seriously.

With the increased amount of screen time children have in front TV’s computer, tablets and phones, children are more likely to develop poor posture during formative years.

Improper use of school bags as a primary source of back and neck pain in children, which is why we can also compare your child's posture with and without their backpack. It has been observed that an exceedingly high percentage of children don’t use or pack school bags correctly…. imagine the effect of this over their school career!
