    I was a complete chiro sceptic but I went along anyway for really bad hip pain since DS was born and the change was overnight. I was totally astounded. I was unable to get to him for three week s and everything started hurting again. One visit pain improved 99%. I did hear that the study physios do is the same as chiro until the final year. I'm totally sold on chiro. I've also heard the guy I see is particularly good so maybe that's it?

    I see a chiro once a month & saw her through out my whole pregnancy. I'm taking DS1 3.5yrs to see her next week for the 1st time. I completely trust her but I wouldn't take him to just anyone I've been seeing her for 5 years so I know she is good

    There's bad and good job everything. A chiro helped out dd1 immensely at 2 weeks old.

    I've been shocked to see how many people take their babies to them.

    Won't somebody think of the children!!
    Exactly!!

    Think the problem is the lack of regulation in the industry. It's also true that there is no science to support chiro treatment for children, however I think there is such a vast difference in treatments. I know I went to a chiro who was ok though didn't fix my issue but told me that they don't do cracking and manipulation on babies and kids- others do. I think there should be a lot more study and regulation and definitely compulsory reporting of adverse events and full disclosure.

    We have had chiro since birth for both DDs and head movement and breastfeeding improvements were amazing and instant. Choose a well-qualified chiro who specialises in children.

    Immunisation has never been mentioned.
    What did you have done to improve breast feeding, if you don't mind me asking?

    Damn, I just posted this because I didn't see that you had started a thread already.

    I took my baby to the chiro - did absolutely nothing and they spent most of the time trying to tell me how Ebil Vaccines where That was enough to turn me off, but this story totally cements if for me.

    We don't based medical decisions on anecdotal evidence when it comes to vaccines etc, I wonder why people suddenly "believe the hype" for want of a better phrase when it is about Chiro?

    There is no science that backs it up, it isn't like it hasn't been studies at length, because it has. They also tend to be anti vaxx in a big way - that makes me super sceptical straight off.
