Scope of Practice
A paediatric chiropractor has a special interest in the chiropractic care of children. They utilise an evidence informed approach to provide age appropriate management for the child, with a focus on the neuromusculoskeletal system.
A paediatric chiropractor provides age appropriate chiropractic care for children to help restore balance to their neuromusculoskeletal systems. Paediatric chiropractors collaborate with other professionals to ensure timely intervention and the best outcome for their patients.
A children’s focused chiropractor aims to optimise neuromuscular function using age appropriate techniques. They are aware of, and able to refer appropriately, in cases of red flags. They use the three pillars of EBP: latest research, patient’s needs and clinical experience, to achieve the most ethical and appropriate outcomes within the current regulatory framework.
A paediatric chiropractor has post graduate study and extensive experience in the chiropractic care of children and their neuromusculoskeletal health.
