Chiropractic is suitable for:

Kids & Babies

Having a chiropractor for kids and babies on your team is a good way to keep up with all the stressors and injuries that children tend to accumulate over the years. Addressing these issues early can give your children the best chance for a healthy recovery.

Chiropractic for Kids and Babies in Brisbane

At Yeronga Chiropractic & Wellness Centre, we are happy to treat children of any age—from babies to children to teenagers.

Dr Aidan McGuigan (Chiropractor) has undertaken further study in chiropractic paediatrics and is one of only a select group of Chiropractors in QLD to do so. Aidan has substantial experience working with musculoskeletal issues in children.

  • How do I know if my child needs a Chiropractic Assessment?

    Poor mobility or an unsettled baby may be some signs that your child may benefit from a Chiropractic assessment. Seek advice as to whether any investigation or care may benefit or be required.

    Getting a chiropractic check-up for babies shortly after birth, during their infancy, growth and development—is beneficial to prevent or treat these issues. At Yeronga Chiropractic, you can trust us as your chiropractors for safe and effective care.

  • How young is too young for Chiropractic and is it safe?

    Children are not small adults, nor should they be treated that way. Chiropractors utilise appropriate techniques and pressure to cooperate with your child’s age, body type and development.

    • Very gentle mobilisations and adjustments are employed with your and your child’s consent.
    • All aspects of examination, care and advice are openly discussed so that you may be satisfied with your decision regarding the need, the efficacy, and the safety of our care. (1,2)
  • Do I need a referral from a paediatrician to see you?

    No, you can book your chiropractic consultation without the need of a referral.

  • Should I schedule a regular Chiropratic appointments for my child?

    For effective recovery and rehabilitation from most injuries and ailments, treatment is often a process of “dose over time”. Kids usually do not need as much care to recover when compared to their adult counterparts. Your chiropractor will advise what type of individualised care is required for your child.

  • What are some examples of conditions that require my child to see a Chiropractor?

    The benefits of paediatric chiropractic care don’t stop after the child is no longer an infant. As your children start crawling, walking and becoming more active, the potential need for check-ups and care remain.

    • Kids learning to walk tend to fall a lot.
    • Playground falls and bumps are common.
    • Backpacks can get heavy and put undue strain on your child’s spine.
    • Youth sports, despite all attempts to make them safe, can still result in collisions, falls or hits that can contribute to imbalances and cause injuries.
    • Poor posture, weight gain, a lack of good exercise and physical development, and prolonged screen time can also put excessive stress onto growing bodies.
