Infant & Early Childhood Services in Swan Hill, Kerang, Sea Lake & Birchip

Just like adults, babies can show signs of stress and physical strain in their bodies in a number of ways. This stress may come from time in the womb during pregnancy, at birth and delivery, or as they are adapting to life as a newborn.

Although the infant body is an adaptable one, babies and children can continue to be susceptible to strains and alignment issues from growing, bumps and falls, illness, and their environment. Treatment aims to ensure growth, alignment, balancing, and optimal physical function is guided as they develop.

During treatment, a thorough case history and physical examination is completed to determine whether there may be a physical component to your child’s current symptoms. We also like to make sure their visit is a pleasant experience, whether in their natural state of play, or relaxing on the table.
