Chiropractic for Kids & Family

Chiropractic care for children is gentle, safe and completely natural. As a child develops they are constantly responding to their physical and emotional environment. As they process new experiences they lay down neurological pathways that manifest themselves both physically and mentally. Correct neurological processing is vital and can be assisted with regular chiropractic support.

At Vital Chiropractic & Wellness, we see many kids for a variety of reasons. We are also proud to be highly trained and experienced in assessing and assisting with areas of specialised chiropractic care for growing brains and spines, including:

  • Learning difficulties
  • Sensory and motor processing
  • Reaching developmental milestones
  • Visual & spatial skills
  • Allergies
  • Bedwetting
  • Ear infections
  • Childhood asthma
  • Social issues
  • Child behavioural issues

Mind, Body & Performance

Ask many of the world’s top athletes about chiropractic care and they will tell you they couldn’t do what they do without it. At Vital Chiropractic & Wellness, we look after athletes, weekend warriors, professional sportspeople and performance coaches on a daily basis.

Vital Chiropractic helps your body to excel in its most natural form, recover faster and rehabilitate better. Our aim is to have your body and mind functioning at its best, we therefore address:

  • Muscle imbalances
  • Postural imbalance
  • Skeletal misalignment
  • Nerve interference
  • Joint mechanics
  • Injury prevention
  • Reduce spinal stress

Our musculoskeletal and neurological techniques support your mind and body to function clearly and achieve mental and physical focus. We also stock a select range of practitioner grade supplements that we believe offer the best support to achieve your mind & body goals.

Pre & Post Pregnancy and Babies

At Vital Chiropractic & Wellness, we love looking after mums, bubs and mums to be.

For Mums:

We strongly believe that chiropractic care can optimise your body’s ability to adapt to all the changes your body is going through during your pregnancy, and help you to stay more comfortable as well as more functional during this special time. Back pain and pelvic discomfort during pregnancy is common, and can be supported through regular pelvic alignments. This is also highly supportive to having a well-positioned pelvis for the delivery of your baby.

For Bubs:

We appreciate that you want the very best in life for your precious newborn. Nothing excites the team at Vital Chiropractic more than seeing the babies and children that we look after blossom and thrive. A baby’s spine is very supple during the first months of life. Therefore the chiropractic techniques used are specialised to accommodate their developing spine. The birthing process, in whatever form that takes, can be taxing for both mother and baby (and it’s tough on the dads too), so having you and your baby checked as soon as possible after birth gives you both a great start to your happy and healthy life together.

Why we see babies at Vital Chiropractic & Wellness:

  • Optimise foetal positioning for birth
  • Balance cranial shape
  • Help unsettled sleepers
  • Assist with breastfeeding issues
  • Colic
  • Indigestion
  • Torticollis
  • Limp or rigid babies
  • Poor head control
  • Delay in developmental milestones
  • Retained primitive reflexes

The chiropractors at Vital Chiropractic have done extensive training including postgraduate courses in looking after babies, and have seen many babies, infants and children over the years. We are also trained in Webster’s Technique – which has a high success rate in repositioning babies in the later weeks of pregnancy.
