Mornington, Australia -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/04/2014 -- Dr. Glenn Maginness, paediatric chiropractor at Mt. Eliza Family Chiropractic (MEFC), announced that the practice is offering free spinal examinations for children as part of its premiere paediatric care. The exams can detect a variety of irregularities that stem from birth trauma or undetected play injuries that have a direct impact on a child’s developmental progress.
A child’s spinal alignment can have complicated consequences on their ability to crawl, sit and walk. Early detection is the key to managing and correcting potential problems. Maginness has more than 26 years of experience and specializes in chiropractic treatments for children of all ages. He’s one of the very few to have achieved a Master’s degree in Chiropractic Paediatrics.
Maginness treats conditions that include curvature of the spine, deformities of the skull and “growing pains”, along with colic, ear infections and headaches caused by an underlying bone problem. Treatment plans are customized to accommodate the needs of the individual to address short-term and ongoing health issues. The paediatric health team understands the needs of children and provides fun games and activities to make them feel comfortable.
Mt. Eliza Family Chiropractic has been serving the community of Mornington and the surrounding environs of the Mornington Peninsula for more than 25 years. The practice offers a full range of chiropractic services for men, women and children. Chiropractic care is available for expectant mothers, allowing them to experience shorter labour and delivery times, less discomfort and fewer complications. Treatments alleviate many of the aches, pains and discomfort associated with pregnancy.
The chiropractic professionals at MEFC utilize a variety of myotherapy and massage therapies to assess and treat muscular conditions in adult patients. Treatments address a variety of issues from stiffness, tension headaches and eyestrain, to improving athletic performance and reducing the risk of future injuries. The therapy is a key element in fostering faster healing of injuries, reducing the formation of scar tissue and strengthening the immune system.
Flexion Distraction Therapy is available that often produces results when other methods have failed. The healing team at MEFC uses the technique to gently manipulate the spine to remove tension on delicate nerves and fibers within the body. The technique relieves the source of swelling and irritation, decreases pain and promotes healing. It’s a treatment that’s proven effective for a myriad of extremely painful conditions that include degenerative arthritis, herniation of discs, vertebra displacement, and improperly aligned bones.
