Chiropractic for Kids: Why Should I Have My Child Checked?

Good spinal alignment is important for proper neurological functioning and development, so considering chiropractic for kids and having your child checked is recommended to ensure normal development.

Most of the children we see at Chiropractix are for bodywork before and after tongue and lip tie surgery (frenectomy). The bodywork consists of gentle mobilisation and stretching to allow for better access, to decrease the chance of regrowth and to improve function. There is no manual adjusting of babies and the treatment is not painful, as only a light to medium pressure is applied.

Dr Alli has been working with Dr Jones at Enhance Dentistry for several years and has developed techniques especially for the tongue tie procedure. Working with a collaborative group of therapists has proven to be the best approach to the care babies with tongue and lip tie.
