Chiropractic for babies
At Riviera Wellbeing we love kids, and believe in looking after the tiniest and most precious members of our families from the very start of life.
We work closely with health visitors, breast feeding specialists and midwives and our paediatric practise is based on excellent ‘word of mouth’ and personal recommendation.
The techniques used to treat babies are very specific and extremely gentle.
Chiropractic for babies
We love kids at Riviera Wellbeing and believe in looking after the smallest members of our families from the very start of life.
In many instances, even the most happy and natural of deliveries can lead to significant stress being exerted upon a baby’s delicate nervous system and, in turn, this can lead to a less than happy little one.
Many babies that we see come to us with complaints of excessive crying, constipation, regurgitation of milk, failing to latch on or feed well, even having a tight or restricted neck.
When we take a full history and examine these children, we often find that the baby is in fact exhibiting symptoms related to dysfunction of the spine and therefore sub optimal function of the nervous system. With chiropractic, these issues can often be resolved in an extremely gentle and drug-free way.
Baby Chiropractic is safe and gentle!
The techniques used to treat your child will always be extremely gentle and are tailored for our tiniest patients.
Cranial techniques feature strongly in an infant chiropractic consultation and often, these are so relaxing, that we see the babies sleep right through their treatment.
If ever we feel that there is a problem that requires further investigation, we will always refer you back to your GP for onward referral to a paediatrician.
Our ‘baby Chiropractor’ – Phoebe
Having specialised in the treatment of our youngest patients, Phoebe Bavin MSc DC, has been treating babies in Torbay since 2002. She works closely with health visitors, breast feeding specialists and midwives and her paediatric practise is based solely on excellent ‘word of mouth’ recommendation.
Not only has she spent many years training and honing her skills – she is also a mother of two children herself. She is well placed to understand both you and your baby’s needs, and can offer advice and support on a wide range of issues. Her knowledge is based in experience gained both as a Chiropractor and as a mother!
Phoebe is amazing with my 3 month old son.
Phoebe was utterly amazing with my baby boy, she put me at ease while working with him and she fixed him in a few sessions. Absolutely 100% recommend Phoebe as a fantastic chiropractor!
We took our little boy to Phoebe when he developed plagiocephaly at 2 months. She worked wonders and obviously we think he now has a perfect shaped head xx
