McTimoney Chiropractic And The Treatment Of Children

Birth is probably one of the toughest events we undergo as humans. A baby’s body has to squeeze through a small birth canal to be born. In doing so the baby’s head in particular will absorb much of the shock and the soft bones will yield slightly allowing it to travel down the birth canal. This is called “moulding”. After birth the baby’s head will gradually revert to a more normal shape. However if this “unmoulding” process does not take place completely, the baby can be left in some discomfort which they are unable to communicate. Most babies cope extremely well with the process and emerge contented, happy, able to feed, sleep and grow normally. However, for some recovery can take longer, especially those who have had a particularly difficult entry into the world, and these babies may show some, all, or a combination of the following signs :
1)
Irritability and fractiousness,
2)
Difficulty in settling and poor sleeping patterns,
3)
Feeding problems,
4)
Continuous crying, or
5)
Colic, sickness and wind.

All of these could indicate that there is a misalignment of the baby’s skeletal system and that the baby is uncomfortable as a result. These misalignments could be causing discomfort both when lying down and when lifted, hence many parents report that whatever they do, whether they lift the baby up or lie him down, it seems to make no difference, and the crying continues. Feeding problems may indicate that there is interference with nerves at the base of the skull and that the digestive system is compromised, or more simply the baby may be uncomfortable sucking due to mechanical stresses on its skeletal structure.

The simple bumps and tumbles associated with growing up can often cause misalignments of the skeleton. In addition, carrying heavy bags, playing sports, sitting on ill-fitting furniture at school and playing for hours on end in front of a computer in the wrong position can all lead to problems, such as :
1)
Headaches or migraine,
2)
Back and neck pain.

There is a range of problems which cannot necessarily be associated with a fall or a bump, but which may nonetheless be due to a bony misalignment and the subsequent interference with nerves. There are many recorded incidences where treatment has been beneficial for the following symptoms :
1)
Some childhood asthma,
2)
Learning difficulties and behavioural problems including - poor concentration and inattentiveness; fidgetting and difficulty sitting still; hyperactivity; clumsiness or poor concentration,
3)
Vulnerability to infections, including - Ear infections; Repetitive colds; Sinus and dental problems.

A full case history regarding your child’s general health background as well as details of their symptoms will be taken by Allan Dalziel. This will help Allan in assessing and analysing their particular problem. All joints, from head to toe, will be thoroughly examined and the appropriate adjustments made where necessary. Parents are encouraged to stay with their child during Allan’s consultation, assessment and treatment. If a problem requiring medical investigation or an x-ray is discovered you and your child will be referred to your GP. Wherever possible Allan Dalziel will work in conjunction with your GP and a letter, where required is sent informing them of the treatment. A treatment plan will be discussed with you.

Many children recover quite quickly from recent injuries or problems but more serious problems may take longer, and some children may benefit from regular check up treatments. These are often recommended to ensure that your child’s growing body maintains a healthy balance.
