Paediatric Chiropractic in Robina

At Zest Chiropractic, we’re passionate about helping kids get off to a healthy start in life and establish optimal health, rather than waiting for symptoms or a crisis to occur. Our chiropractor, Dr Laura Priestley, sees kids from newborns on up, with the goal of helping them thrive.

Why Do Kids Need Chiropractic Care?

By seeing kids at a young age, we may pick up on issues and address them early, so they don’t become chronic health conditions later. With regular care, we want to help children develop optimally and perform at their best. In addition, we love to start the narrative from a young age about what kids can do to keep their bodies healthy, long-term.

What to Expect

We have different paperwork for children, and our examination process includes more balance and neurological testing. We also do a scoliosis screening for children. It’s a good idea to have your child wear comfy sports clothes for the scoliosis screening.

Dr Laura does not use manual adjusting techniques on children under the age of about 8. For most kids, she uses Activator Methods® and/or Sacro-Occipital Technique, which are both low-force techniques.

Conditions We See

Parents bring their kids to us for a variety of neuromusculoskeletal issues, including:

  • Back pain
  • Balance and coordination problems
  • Ear infections
  • Headaches
  • Migraines

The Benefits of a Healthy Nervous System

Similar to an adult, a child’s nervous system is responsible for the function of every cell, tissue and organ in their body. Chemical, emotional and physical stressors and traumas can affect the spine – which protects the nervous system – and can interfere with the flow of communication between the brain and body.

When the flow of communication is restored by restoring proper function to the spine and nervous system, the body is able to heal and regulate itself naturally, resulting in improved health and a better quality of life.

Dr Laura also enjoys educating parents and children on how to maintain a healthy spine and provides advice on how to correctly fit a backpack and also the safe use of digital devices which is so important in this digital age.
