All the chiropractors at Balance Integrated Health are trained in gentle, appropriate techniques suitable for babies and children. We utilise a range of low force adjusting techniques that are modified for each individual child. The care we provide to babies and young children is not HVLA (high velocity low amplitude) as described by the Chiropractic Board of Australia. Chiropractic care for children is very low risk and both patients and parents report exceptionally high satisfaction levels.

Infancy and childhood are times of rapid growth. Many parents choose to bring their babies and children to the Chiropractor for the assessment of their neuro-musculo skeletal system. It is important to ensure that the connections between the brain and body all develop and function well. Healthy nervous system function can support the achievement of developmental milestones. At Balance we are committed to the careful assessment and gentle correction of your child’s neuro-musculo-skeletal system to help support their healthy development.

The chiropractors at Balance Integrated Health have undertaken further paediatric study and training, however the Australian Health Practitioner Registration Agency for health providers (AHPRA) does not recognise specialist status for chiropractors in Australia.
