What is Paediatric Care?
Paediatric care is about dealing with the health and medical care of infants, children, and adolescents from birth up to the age of 18.
People in this age bracket can have inherent issues or start developing problems. If left unattended, these can deteriorate and become much more serious in the future.
A seemingly small spine alignment can result in serious pain and posture issues if not addressed timely.
This is even more crucial as young children especially are not good at communicating their problems, causing injuries or deformities to exaggerate over time.
Chiropractic work is one avenue of paediatric care to ensure that your child's growth is free from trouble. Chiropractic work addresses the issue at its root - preventing escalation and helping with recovery.
Symptoms in Children
Symptoms can vary depending on the severity of the condition and these can include:
What is Geriatric Care?
Geriatric care is about improving the well-being of elderly people. People experience a lot of issues with the onset of age.
Growing older means that your body is not as strong as before, and can be more vulnerable to injuries and deformities. Geriatric care aims to rectify bodily problems which elderly face and help prevent them from occurring in the future.
Chiropractic work can play a huge role in mitigating said issues. It is capable of isolating the cause of the problem and effectively treat it. Preventive care can also be achieved through targeted treatment options and correcting bad habits or practices.
Symptoms in Elderly
Symptoms vary depending on the severity of the condition you may have and these can include:
Spinal/ back issues
Pain and aching
How can Chiropractic help?
Diagnose the right condition for a personalised treatment
Our chiropractors will assess the cause and severity of your condition with a physical assessment during the consultation. In addition to the physical exam, we'll look into your past medical history and any recent X-ray results available to pinpoint the cause of the pain. Determining the source of the pain is essential to recommend the right method of treatment and rehabilitation. Treatment will be customised to your condition and these options can include:
To improve overall functionality and alleviate the stress on your system.
Effective in treating migraines by relieving compression in the head, neck, and back. This can soothe pain and release both emotional and physical stress and tension.
Electrotherapy (TENS machine)
Provides therapeutic effect to enhance range of motion and alleviate your pain by penetrating tissue and reducing its tightness.
Providing long-term care as your healthcare partner
Whole-Body Treatment Approach
Our chiropractors adopt a whole-body treatment approach to evaluate your pain areas as a whole because other regions of the neck (cervical), mid back (thoracic) and low back (lumbar) may be affected as well. We aim to treat the “whole person,” not just to treat your specific symptoms.
Advice on Posture, Exercises, Diet and Nutrition
In order to treat the root of chronic pains that are recurring over time, our chiropractors seek to understand your lifestyle and work demands so as to provide personalised patient-centric care and advice over a longer time horizon as your healthcare partner.
