Dr Kerry Crockett, Chiropractor (with special interest in paediatrics)
Dr Kez Crockett, is a qualified Chiropractor and mother of 4 children, who has devoted her career to assisting families to achieve health and harmony for over 17 years.
For so many families Chiropractic is a last resort for their unsettled baby, after going to the doctor and being told that their child has silent reflux or colic, or more frustratingly, that there is nothing wrong.
A baby that is not sleeping well (cat napping, unable to self-settle, or unable to remain asleep), arching their back, sleeping with their bottom in the air, holding their head to one side, excessive crying, having feeding difficulties, crying when not being held, or when placed on the floor for play time or tummy time, or when placed in their car seat, or even not reaching their developmental milestones may well have discomfort stemming from a subluxation in their spines or tiny joints. Let’s face it, the birth process is quite physically demanding on both Mum and Bub!
At Life Balance Adjustments, Dr Kez will do a thorough assessment of your little one’s physical body and inform you of the findings and how these areas can be treated. Please rest assured that our treatments are all extremely gentle and highly effective, in fact the most pressure that would ever be used in the treatment of an infant is as much pressure as you can handle on your closed eyeball.
The benefits of having your precious children treated by a Chiropractor that focuses on children, is far reaching, from eliminating their discomfort, through enhancing your child’s immune system, all the way through to ensuring that they are developing to their body’s best ability.
One of the other great benefit of Chiropractic care for newborns infants and children is just how quickly their issues resolve and how infrequently they require adjustments to keep their bodies function to their fullest potential. Once your child’s spine has been adjusted, it is amazing how quickly your family harmony will be restored, especially when using appropriate baby loves sleep suit.
