Chiropractic for Babies and Children

Our treatment is safe & effective for all the family.

More and more parents are turning to chiropractic for Babies and Children, no wonder it is the fastest growing healthcare profession in the world. You don’t need to be in pain to get your spine checked – just like you don’t need toothache to get your teeth checked. The main premise of chiropractic is to remove anything that interferes with your body’s ability to work at its best. As the nervous system organises everything in your body & the delicate nerves travel down the spinal cord & pass out between each vertebrae, there is a chance that the nerves can become irritated… often from birth onwards!

“The amount of pressure needed to treat a child’s spine is no more than you would use to check the ripeness of a tomato!”

  • Babies

  • Toddlers

  • Older Children

Chiropractors attempt to find the source of the many childhood problems that are caused by nerve interference. Once detected we utilise a range of treatment techniques to resolve the problem. Think of a Chiropractic adjustment as locating a tripped switch in your fusebox. We locate it, correct it & let your body do the rest.

Do Chiropractors “crack” baby’s spines?

Babies do not need the manipulation that adults may experience, there is no cracking or sudden movements; everything is slow and gentle: Most babies enjoy their spine being checked & often fall asleep. In-fact a baby hasn’t fully developed the joints in their spine for some years so we use specific gentle techniques for babies. Not all chiropractors are trained to work with babies and children so it is worth checking before booking your family in for a consultation. Our Chiropractors are members of the International Chiropractic Paediatrics Association (ICPA) and trained in techniques specifically for Baby’s and children.

Our Principal Chiropractor has over 17 years experience working with children in practice and has twin toddler sons and an older daughter.

Chiropractic for Babies and Children

The Dorsi Spinal Institute


Monday 2:00 – 7:00
Tuesday & Thursday 8:00 – 7:00
Friday 8:00 – 2:00

Our principal Chiropractor Dr Matthew ABJ Potts has over 20 year experience in healthcare and has developed the unique Dorsi Method that has a waiting list for other practitioners to learn.

Rather than treating everyone the same, our goal is to find the cause of your problems and really understand WHY they have happened. Your treatment plan will be unique to you. The hands-on treatment you receive will be provided by the Chiropractor or Osteopath and a qualified sports therapist. The Chiropractor or Osteopath will take overall responsibility for your care and provide any recommendations plus the spinal manipulation component of your care. Your sports therapist will work on the soft tissues by providing deep tissue massage, traction or stretching and will take care of your rehabilitation: your homework (if necessary.)

The clinic offers a state of the art diagnostic suite including Colour Ultra HD and 3D diagnostic ultrasound and a GE Direct Digital X-ray system due to be installed in early 2019. We also use the latest posture scanners using Infra-red imaging to build a photo-realistic postural avatar of your body. From this scan we can assess your posture, show you where your body is dysfunctional, identifying potential causes for the condition to relapse and most importantly, we re-assess you at regular intervals during your treatment plan without any additional radiation.

Our treatment protocols are ultra specific to your body and may include traction sessions stretching your spine in the exact opposite (Mirror-Image) to its usual incorrect position. You will have a personalised rehabilitation plan designed by our Masters Degree Level trained Rehab Consultant.
