“To look into some aspects of the future, we do not need projections by super-computers.
Much of the next millennium can be seen in how we care for children today.
Tomorrow’s world may be influenced by science and technology,
but more than anything, it is already taking shape in the bodies and minds of our children”
– Kofi Annan (Secretary General of the United Nations)
Why is it that children under regular chiropractic care are rarely sick? Or if they do get sick they typically bounce back quicker?
Chiropractic adjustments are a gentle, safe, natural and effective way to ensure that your child is developing to their fullest potential! The adjustments that we do with children are different from those we use with adults. We gently balance dural tension, cranial work to ensure movement of the sutures (the joints of the skull) and specific adjustments using an instrument called an activator or finger tip pressure (the pressure applied is no more than you would use to touch your own eyeball)
What does this mean for your child? The aim of an adjustment is to help stimulate optimum communication between the brain and the body. Good brain body connection = a nervous system and body that can adapt, heal and re-establish balance in response to stress
65% of neurological development (i.e development of the brain and nervous system) occurs in the first year of your child’s life. It is the nervous system that controls children’s development and it controls the person that they will grow up to be.
“About 17% of children have developmental delay”

“Many are not detected before school entrance”
