Chiropractors for Children and Babies | Melbourne


Welcome to ChiroChild!

If you are here for the first time, or a regular visitor, we are delighted to share our story with you. If you are wondering what we do, and why we do it, read on...

We believe child wellness is tremendously important. We exist to help families raise the happiest, healthiest children. So tap in to our wealth of knowledge and expertise in the field of childhood health optimisation! 

"Why would i take my baby/child to a chiropractor?"

chirochild offers genuine 'child wellness consulting' on a comprehensive range of issues. Think of a baby/child question -any question - think of one right now! We may have the answer.

chirochild is SO different from clicking backs. Many of our treatments are like tiny massages. Many children require no treatment, but simply the family requires advice or support on home-based care, or referral to other practitioners. Our practitioners are trained to make the experience as comfortable as possible for the babies and children.

chirochild is one of a handful of child-only chiropractic centres in Australia. Our chiropractic doctor has studied childhood chiropractic at the highest level, lectured to chiropractors in Australia and New Zealand. Rest assured - you are talking with the experts in the field. 

chirochild was founded by Dr Paul Chamberlain, Chiropractor for Children. He offers chiropractic care exclusively for children, and opened a new dedicated centre in Greensborough in July 2013. Dr Melissa Car joined the team in 2015 to care for parents, grandparents, and children.

chirochild offers gentle, holistic, wellness care for newborns (0-4 weeks), infants (<12 months), toddlers, preschoolers, and school aged children, up to 18 years of age. Together with Melissa Car, we also care for mums, dads, and grandparents, too. Chiropractors for children assess much more than ‘backs’. We assess and assist the neuro-musculo-skeletal transformation from newborn to infant, infant to toddler, toddler to preschooler, and preschooler to school aged child.

Newborn checks

Immediately after birth, chirochild practitioners are qualified to assess the nerves, muscles and joints of all babies. After living in a cramped uterus, and the trauma of vaginal and caesarean deliveries, newborn checks are sought by more and more people. We believe the earliest checks lead to the best health outcomes. Read more -
