Paediatric Chiropractor – Chiropractic Care for Children!
The practice of paediatrics within the chiropractic profession, is based on the principle that children are unique individuals undergoing the process of human development and not merely ‘little adults’. A paediatric chiropractor is a clinician capable of delivering gentle chiropractic care to a child, observing at all times the clinical parameters which would require that child to be referred to other health professionals where necessary.
