Morningside Chiropractic

Increasingly, we are getting more and more requests from parents to have a look at their younger infants and babies. Whilst the majority of these enquiries are as a result of word of mouth, a parent who is suffering from sleep deprivation and worried about their child is often open to new types of care after they have tried everything else.

Why Choose Katie For Your Baby Or Young Child?

Katie Champion is our dedicated paediatric chiropractor at the clinic. She loves working with babies and children, especially as they tend to respond to treatment so fast and favourably, and is passionate about giving them the best start in life. Katie completed a postgraduate degree in functional neurology and completed further studies specifically aimed at childhood developmental delays. She regularly attends post graduate paediatric seminars and this has allowed Katie to develop a very strong understanding and a high clinical standard in the treatment of babies and infants.

What To Expect When You First See Katie

Upon being warmly greeted by our reception team, you will be asked to complete an assessment form where we can gather some essential information about your child. You will then be brought into the treatment room and Katie will ask a few more questions to gain as much information as necessary to diagnose what might be wrong. Katie will then spend a few moments with your baby until your baby feels comfortable, before she carries out the necessary examination to identify any problem. If she needs to ask any further questions, this will generally be done after the exam as she finds the baby responds better when total touch and attention is focused on them. We do our best to make your baby to feel at ease during the examination and treatment and we have a special baby pillow that supports and moulds around your baby during this process.

How Is A Baby's Treatment Different To An Adult?

The methods used to adjust a baby or small child are clearly going to be very different from those of an adult. Katie has great experience in using gentle, safe and effective techniques appropriate for every stage of their development. These may include gentle spinal, cranial and visceral paediatric techniques and Katie will explain the treatment process to you and talk through your child’s treatment plan. We receive great feedback from parents who relax in the knowledge that their child’s spine and cranial bones are in good hands. Be prepared for your child needing more than one treatment. Usually a baby’s issue, unless a more serious case, can be treated within 4-5 sessions.
