Do you know how to support the physical development of the little ones in your life?
One of the ways I've continued to support the health of myself and my family is through seeking the support of a chiropractor. Yep, even my daughter from just days post birth.
While there are many different types of chiropractic adjustments and treatments, it has shown to be an extremely positive therapy for families across Australia, in a 2019 Victorian review into chiropractic care for children.
Both the public and health practitioners from all around Australia were invited to participate. An overwhelming 21,824 submissions were received from members of the public who had accessed chiropractic spinal care for a child under 12 years.
Of all the respondents, 99.7% reported a positive experience with the chiropractic care of their children. The overwhelming majority of parents reported that chiropractic care helped their child, with 98% indicating that their child improved after treatment.
This shows a patient satisfaction that many health professions would be envious of. So what exactly do chiropractors do with babies that results in such a group of satisfied parents?
Today on the podcast, I’m speaking with Dr Catherine Kenyon, chiropractor of twelve years who is extremely passionate about helping families achieve optimal health and wellbeing through her holistic style of chiropractic.
Catherine has a particular interest in helping families of young babies learn all they can about optimising development from birth; through her discussions on developmental milestones, to her tummy time workshops and everything in between.
In our chat, Catherine explores:
> How birth can be a trauma for babies and the role an adjustment can play post birth for their health and development.
> The impacts and contributing factors of flat head syndrome and ways you can prevent this in your little one.
> The brain development of babies & thoughts on creating sleep routines at an early age.
> What the normal major motor development stages of a baby are and how to make decisions to assist them.
> Using carriers safely for both Mum and baby.
> The best way to keep babies safe while travelling in the car.
