Chiropractor Dr Luke Tassell with Child

Dr Luke Tassell with Child

From newborns to grandparents, everyone is welcome at Winthrop Chiropractic Care. We focus on providing quality care to your entire family.

Why do you see expecting mums?

We see many pregnant patients who want to have their spine looked after during this incredible time of their life. We’ll modify your care through each trimester. Chiropractor Dr Luke Tassell has five children and much experience in helping mums who are pregnant.

After you’ve had your baby, it’s possible that you may experience spinal problems, which can become long-term without the proper attention. We’ll help you through this crucial period.

Why would a child receive chiropractic care?

When your child isn’t healthy, it affects the entire family unit. Kids play, fall off playground equipment and get injuries playing various sports. Teens have postural issues because of heavy school bags, more screen time and sporting competitions. Chiropractic care offers a non-invasive solution to many different types of health problems.

When should I bring my kids in?

We see children of all ages from newborns to teens.

How do you adjust a baby?

Our chiropractors have seen hundreds of infants and children. Only low-force, extremely gentle techniques are used, which involves about the same pressure you’d apply to a tomato if you were to check its ripeness.

How often does a child need to be seen?

A thorough evaluation process can determine what is most suitable. Regular re-evaluations are done so that we can make any changes or adaptations necessary, tailoring our approach to each patient.

We’re pleased to offer complimentary consultations. Contact our Melville practice today to get started!
