Children and Infants

We see many children from infants who may have experienced neck trauma during the birth process, colic, children with growing pains and other childhood disorders and those developing postural problems carrying school bags. In the UK Cranial Osteopathy has been seen as the alternative treatment of choice for children, in Scandinavia it is chiropractic and where most research has been done looking at the effect of chiropractic on colic and other childhood conditions, Spinal Joint offers both services.

Richard Lanigan the clinic owner (see below)has four children who get spinal checks on a regular basis, if they need a spinal adjustment it is performed with skill and without pain.

The International Chiropractic Paediatric Association has put together a comprehensive collection of chiropractic case studies clinical research studies and other published papers which suport the efficacy of chiropractic care for children and pregnant women. The most common conditions children present with at spinal joint are growing pains, ear ache, headaches & migraines, scoliosis, asthma and infants with colic.



It is important to realize that chiropractic is not the treatment of any condition. The purpose of chiropractic is to find and reduce stress and interference to the nerve system, allowing the person to experience greater function and an overall improved quality of life.
