Paediatric Chiropractic at Windsor Neck & Back Care Centre

Dr. Elizabeth with hands on babys headDr. Elizabeth and Dr. Mike have three children. They know firsthand how kids are always falling off something, taking a tumble or roughhousing. If your children are active, it may negatively affect their health. If, conversely, your children aren’t active, you also have something to consider – today’s kids are always on a tablet, mobile or playing video games. The ergonomics involved can also take a toll on their well-being.

Why Kids Need Chiropractic

When your child was born, they had an incredible amount of pressure placed on their neck. Even natural births are traumatic for baby. They may also have issues like colic or acid reflux that you need to seek help for. As they grow up, they will join sports, sit and watch television, read books, study and do more things that will have a strong effect on their health.

You don’t want to pump your child full of medications or take them to the doctor for a cortisol shot. Chiropractic may offer your kids an alternative that can help them.

No one under the age of 16 should ever have back pain. Growing pains don’t exist, either.

Do Your Kids Have Text Neck?

In today’s Society, we’re increasingly seeing kids with the same type of problems: a reverse cervical curve. That means their neck’s natural curve is starting to go in the opposite direction. It’s all thanks to technology – the mobiles, tablets and computers that are ever-present. Chiropractic can offer a solution and restore their proper spinal curves.


Is the assessment process for kids different?

We use the same type of evaluation for children that we do for adults. If they’re under 8 years old, we may modify what we’re doing. Once they’re old enough to communicate, we’ll explain directly to them what we’re doing and why.

Do you use specialised techniques for children?

Our primary technique is called applied kinesiology. It’s appropriate for kid and adults. Everything includes objective measures so that we can identify exactly what your child needs. If your child is an infant, we can adjust them as they lie on Mom or Dad.

I’m worried that my child won’t behave at your office. What should I do?

You shouldn’t do anything except let your child be themselves. We don’t expect them to be perfect angels! Relax, have a seat and let your child play and become familiar with our environment.

Why would I have my newborn or young child adjusted?

Being in a tightly cramped space for the duration of the pregnancy can lead to some minor issues that chiropractors can address. Chiropractic care provided to infants can support their physical development, boost their recovery after birth, alleviate colic symptoms, enhance their immune system, and make them less irritable or fussy.

Can chiropractic help with colic and how?

Chiropractic care has been shown to reduce symptoms by relieving pressure and allowing the body to perform its functions properly.

How safe are adjustments on children?

They are considered to be very safe. Young bodies are usually flexible and resilient, but some minor adjustments can help the child grow strong and pain free.

How old were your children when they received their first adjustment?

They were newborns.

How often should my child be adjusted?

It depends on the child and the issues. Chiropractic adjustments for young patients focus mainly on increasing the function of the nervous system. This network in the human body is crucial to brain and nerve development, behaviour, the immune system and so much more.
