Why Chiropractic Care For Children
Plagiocephaly (Head Shape concerns) and Torticollis
Dr. Hort has been educating parents on and clinically managing babies with torticollis and plagiocephaly for over 20 years with excellent results. Her focus is on proper function of the spine and nervous system that in turn allows for proper reshaping of the cranium and facial bones, versus simpy the aesthetics (how it looks) of the condition. Dr. Hort and her team works collaboratively with your physiotherapist when needed to provide you with all the information you need to prevent and/or treat the issues that have lead to a misshapen head due to positioning issues, in-utero positioning and/or birth trauma.
If you or your children need to carry a backpack, learn how to do it properly and avoid creating back/neck pain or long term problems. Be sure to have a 'backpack check' next time you are in!
Gross Motor Milestones
Dr. Samantha de Castro works with children throughout their development to aid in appropriate gross motor milestone achievement. If your little one has skipped a milestone, is delayed, or has a compensation pattern (like janky crawling) and assessment can be the perfect place to start!
