Pediatric Chiropractic

Did you know that babies, children, and teenagers can benefit from chiropractic care

just like adults? Dr. Shenaigh has always had a special place in her heart for children

and that interest has only grown after having her own kids. She has spent years further

educating and specializing her skills to treat babies and children and often has other

chiropractors referring to her due to experience and skill with this population.

Adjusting babies and children is very different then adjusting adults. Most adjustments

are performed with a delicate fingertip pressure, some babies even sleep through it!

This allows for a gentle, safe, yet effective treatment for our most important patients.

Chiropractic Services for Children

New born baby visits Pine Cone Health

Newborns

From the time they are born, babies go through a lot. Position in the womb, labor, and delivery can contribute to tension in the body that may cause difficulties in the future. Chiropractic Treatment for newborns may help alleviate this tension allowing for healthy growth and development.

Infants / Babies

Chiropractic treatment can also help with feeding and/or latch issues of breastfeeding or bottle-fed babies. Dr. Shenaigh has additional training in the Pediatric Intraoral Palate Specific (PIPS) technique and in assessing and treating tongue-tie related issues.

Toddlers / Children 

Being a kid means exploring their world around them and sometimes bumps and

bruises happen along the way. Chiropractic treatment can help with any injuries that

may arise as your child grows and can help with healthy development.

Teenagers

Before you know it, your child has grown so fast they’re taller than you. This rapid growth can sometimes cause joint restrictions and muscle tension that chiropractic can help with. They also are sitting more at school which can cause neck pain and/or headaches. Sports injuries and concussions are also common at this age.

Should You Take Your Baby to the Chiropractor?

Many people don’t realize that Paediatric Chiropractors use different techniques on babies than they would on adults. These techniques are focussed on specific points on the body using only gentle fingertip pressure and do not involve any twisting or cracking of the back that are used in traditional adjustments.

Babies also go through many changes in their first year of life. If you are noticing that they are not meeting their milestones, such as rolling, sitting, crawling, etc, a chiropractic treatment may help alleviate any joint restrictions or tension in the body that may be preventing mobility. Chiropractic treatment for babies can also help restore mobility and alignment when dealing with breastfeeding struggles.

No matter the age, chiropractic treatment can help your child feel better and move better so that they can have a healthy and active life.

Biography

Dr. Shenaigh Newman received a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Chemistry from the University of Alberta in 2011 and graduated from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) in 2016. She has always had a passion for treating pregnant and postpartum patients and that interest only grew after she became a mom in 2018. When not in the clinic, you can find her chasing after her toddler, snuggling her new baby or off on some new adventure in the mountains.

Philosophy & Style

Dr. Shenaigh delivers a hands-on, evidence-based, and patient-centred approach to treatment. She enjoys figuring out the root cause of the problem and helping give her patients the tools to help prevent the issue in the future. She believes that a well-rounded form of treatment is best and often combines manual therapy with education, stress management, nutrition guidance, and rehabilitation exercises. She is passionate about helping new moms (and dads!) navigate the journey into parenthood and helping them achieve their goals; whether it be to pick up their kid pain-free or to run a 10km next summer.
