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’. Care should be provided by practitioners who have extensive hands-on experience and knowledge of how children’s systems differ from adults. All chiropractic practitioners who choose to work with babies and small children should be extensively trained in normal growth and development plus have established expertise in the different paediatric conditions that commonly present. In this practice we have Dr Amanda Boyd and Dr Emily Siegert.
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.
